Quotes:

“I don’t like to attach myself to material things.”

“I don’t have a favourite designer because I feel every designer offers something different and special, but I do really like Alexander Wang, Burberry, Stella McCartney and Balmain.”

“I like seeing how I can look in a photo.”

“I am not big on jewelry, but I do love hats as an accessory, specifically snap backs and beanies.”

“I don’t wear heels. I’m all about flats from Chanel and wedges. I love my Gucci wedge boots.”

“I go to castings and see several black and Asian girls, then I get to the show and look around there’s just me and maybe one other coloured face.”
