1. What does being a Luxe model mean to you?
Being a Luxe model gives me the opportunity to not only work for an amazing magazine, but also represent for all kurvy women. I want to inspire women all over the world, and show them that you can be sexy and confident regardless of what size you are.
2. Why do you love being kurvy?
Being a kurvy woman is simply who I am. I’ve learned to love every part of me, especially my kurves. They make me feel extra sexy in anything I wear.
3. How do you empower women?
One of the many things I love about this business, is the ability to interact with many different women. I enjoy sharing my testimony, and how my experiences have helped build me into the strong, confident woman I am today. Many are encouraged by my story, and that makes me happy.
4. What are your hobbies, and do you give back to any charities?
On my free time, I love reading, hiking and outdoor activities. I have a huge passion for dogs, which I get to work with on a daily basis. I also enjoy helping others in need. My friends and I recently started collecting items for the homeless. Once a month, we drive around and pass them out. It’s an extremely humbling experience.
