1. What made you want to model for Nora Swimwear?

Well, to begin I fell in love with the idea of empowering women of any body type, size or color. I believe it is extremely important for women worldwide to feel confident in the body that they have, and here at Nora Swim that is the main mission! I also love supporting local start ups and this was a great opportunity to be involved.

2.Do you have any previous modelling experience?

I do! I counted recently and I think I have been a part of 18 photo shoots before!

5. Tell us about your dream job, where would you be and what would you be doing?

Anything revolving around working with kids, and helping people. I have a few options in mind such as Occupational Therapy, Probation Officer, Therapist or Teacher. I will be wherever any of those jobs take me!

6. What’s your biggest goal for 2017?

This year is about me, and bettering myself. I want to focus on school and getting good marks, but most importantly just do me and whatever that is that makes me happy!

7. You’re leaving the house for a week for vacation. Name three things you’re bringing with you:

My blanket, I never leave for a trip without! Also my phone and hair elastics!!!

8. Name your worst habit:

Definitely over thinking and playing with my hair

9. Now name your best habit:

Every morning when I wake up I have a note on my bathroom mirror that forces me to name a few things I am grateful for, have accomplished recently and am thankful for about the current day.

10. How and when do you make time for yourself?

I always leave at least an hour before I go to bed for some time to reflect on my day, scroll through social media and just relax. I also will go to a cafe and grab coffee and let my mind wander about anything and everything that has been going on in my life recently.
