You have been named “Philadelphia’s Hottest Blonde” by WMMR. Also named “Philadelphia’s Hottest Sports Babe” and “Model of the Year” by the Phillies and Flyers. Tell us more about how these professional achievements have acted as a motivator to further your professional career as a model and your hard work, tenacity, and endurance have been a catalyst to achieve these spectacular heights in modeling?
Having a passion for sports at an early age, I just fell into sports modeling quickly. I love everything about sports, the competitive thrill, winning, and working hard for something. Sports taught me a lot as a youth, and I took that into my everyday life in the goals I wanted to achieve in life. I combined my ability as an athlete and a model to make the impossible happen and become those things. Who would have thought that me, at 12 years old with a pitching coach by my side, that I would be named those things. I will never forget where it started, how it began, and how I created a life around my sports and the ability to be a woman and get right in there with the boys. If sports have taught me anything, it has empowered me to show my ability as a person and not what a girl can and can’t do because she is pretty. I am going to use all my strengths and focus less on my weaknesses.
Advice and motivational words to the inspiring and budding fashion model girls, who all are your fans and shall like to know from you for their climb to the ladder of success in the field of modeling?
You are going to want to quit a thousand times over and over. You will lose friends, create enemies, and become consumed by the ever question, “Am I good enough?” But you see, what modeling does is it allows you to evolve. It enables you to get back up time and time again because, with modeling, you can become whatever you want. You will create a life so busy that quality relationships will overpower the mean less ones. You will stand for things that others may not agree with, and you will accept beauty in all forms. I speak of some of the struggles I’ve personally gone through because that’s the real test. Getting in front of a camera is the easy part, it is what you do when you aren’t in the spotlight that matters. Modeling is a very lonely profession, and it requires an enormous amount of self-love and discipline. If you can get through some of this and create a life to better the world around you through your beauty, then the best advice is to have fun, be yourself, and stick to your morals on what you find is the ultimate price for fame. I will always seek out change and share my voice; my looks have just been one of my strengths to prove that I am human just like the rest.
You have done bold photo shoots with Yahoo and appeared on Fox Sports, Sports Illustrated, Yard Barker, Hollywood Tuna, Guyism, and many more.. How you are so body confident and advice to your compatriots?
Would you believe me if I told you how crippling my job could make me feel at times? How much I had in my early 20’s obsessed over every flaw. The camera lights show everything, so there have been moments I was the most confident woman in the world, and there were times I would reschedule a job. Honestly, being a woman and having a woman’s body is one of the greatest gifts one can receive, and I truly believe we as women are judged by it so much. I never understood the meaning of “just are you,” but I get it now. You MUST own your life, you must take control and if that starts with being confident first. Once you master that, you can convince anybody that you are something special because you are. Confidence is King.
