What Inspires You Every day? : My family, my friends, my studies, my faith in God & my passion are what keep inspiring me each day I wake up from my bed. I love what I do and the people who surrounding me, who stay by my side too.
I think it’s really important to have some support in any way possible too sometimes. The more I see myself accomplishing, the more I will be motivated to keep doing better !
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: My grandfather always used to tell me words I still admire now, as for example :

So, I just live by it 🙂

To finish, I also wanna inspiring more and more black girls & others to be more confident with themselves. We deserve ! Not just in modeling, as well, but … why not tho ? haha.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : At the start, I was really feeling indifferent but during this time, I learned how to adapt myself to it. I been more productive, I took care of me better and reflected on some several projects. I also spent more time with my family, so it helped me a lot personally.
