Who do you consider as your role model(s)?

There are lots of people out there who might not mean well for an aspiring model so one has to be careful and vigilant out there.


" Also be yourself you might walk into a room and it’s all these big booty baddies you know.. don’t ever feel like you can’t do it cause you don’t look like them. There’s always someone watching."
