If you had three wishes, what would they be?
I’d wish for free healthcare, to be cast in a movie,and to elect a better president.

What is something that you’ve never done that you want to do?
Skydive!

What’s your most embarrassing moment?
At one of my fashion shows at the last minute they decided to put soil on the runway. The moment I stepped onto it, I slipped and fell!

What’s the most regrettable beauty trend you’ve ever tried? Thin eyebrows.

If you could hear one song performed live by any musician what would it be?
Basically anything Beyonce sings.

What’s something people wouldn’t know about you?
I really like to sing. It feels weird to actually even say that because I don’t talk about it or ever sing in front of anyone.

In a world full of influencers, who influences you most?
This is a tough question. I’m influenced by so many different things: movies, photos, music, live performances, people on the street, but most of all, the people I surround myself with are my biggest influences: my friends and family.

What motivates or inspires you?
Remembering where I came from and how hard I worked to get to where I am now, both in my work and personally. It keeps me grounded and motivates me to keep going and to live my best life.

Do you have a self-care ritual or a creative pursuit?
I like to meditate. I’m always on the go and a lot of the time I get anxious, so when I can I use meditation as a way to help me stay calm.

What’s the worst holiday gift you ever received?
It’s definitely not the worst, but when I was younger for years I asked for a trampoline. My mom finally said she would get me one. Christmas came around and I opened the box and it’s ended up being one of those small exercise trampolines. It was so funny. But I actually really enjoyed it!

What’s your guilty pleasure snack?
Hot Cheetos.

Looking back, what advice would you give to your 14-year-old self?
I would tell myself to stop being so worried about what others think of me. To be confident in my own opinions and decisions.
