How does it feel to have won the 37th Elite Model Look World Final?
Being the Winner of Elite Model Look is so crazy because it's always been a dream of mine to be signed with Elite World Group (EWG). I just am so beyond grateful for EWG and this whole opportunity.
What was your favourite moment from the contest?
My favorite part of this whole contest was getting to hear from the coaches and their amazing advice that they gave all of us. I also made a lot of new friends in this contest. I'm excited to see where this takes us on our new fashion industry journey. I'm beyond grateful for this whole experience.
How did you celebrate?
To celebrate, me and my family all went out to dinner. I think it was super cool and a lot of my friends called me too, and were congratulating me. Just being surrounded by everybody that really means something to me is the best way to celebrate. I got to spend it with the ones that I love and my best friends as well.
How did you apply to Elite Model Look?
Being signed with EWG has always been a dream of mine, and when I saw that they had the 37th Elite Model Look on their social media that's how I found out and I applied. I was like, I need to apply and see what happens, because I know that if you never apply, you're never going to have a chance to win. So, when I finally got the email that said I was a part of this, it was literally so crazy, and I couldn't believe it. But I'm just so excited I had this opportunity. And definitely Elite is super, super amazing. And I wanna say thank you.
What is the most important thing you have learned how to do on social media?
One of the most important things, I think, on social media is to really recognize your fan base. Without my fan base, I wouldn't be where I am today and I definitely want to thank all of them. Don't ever take what you have for granted, whether it's millions of people or 10 people. Those are the people that are going to stand by you no matter what. So always stay involved and message them, stay connected. I love my fan base because we are kind of like a little family. I'm beyond grateful for them. And without them, I wouldn't be where I am today.
In the contest, you told us you would like to get into acting too. What would be your dream role to play in the future?
Besides being in the fashion industry and modeling as well, I want to be a full time actor. I would love to be in those teen drama kinds of shows, something like Riverdale or Teen Wolf or even something maybe on Disney Channel or something like that as well, just because that was my whole childhood. I definitely want to do acting as well as modeling, and I'm super excited to see where this whole journey takes me. And I know with Elite that anything is possible.
