What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I want to audition for Miss America!
What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about modeling, acting, and inspiring others. I love the feeling of the rush and the thrill of being behind a camera, it gives me confidence in all aspects of life. I also love acting and expressing myself, it gives me a chance to step out of my comfort zone and act as all different types of characters. Modeling and acting has also given me the chance to inspire young kids, there’s no better feeling than a young child looking up to you and wanting to be just like you.
Are you a dog person or a cat person? By far a cat person, my step-dad and I always rescue cats and baby kittens
My favorite meal is.. Thanksgiving dinner- Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, apple sauce, mashed potatoes, ham, and green bean casserole.
My theme song would be …Barbie Girl
My best concert was…I’ve never been to a concert… but I have been to Madison Square Garden to watch the UCONN girls play!
For a good time I…. Work out, play basketball, and of course take selfies!
What’s your biggest accomplishment? I am a a four year honor student at Pocono Mountain East High School and have received several awards for excellence in academics. I also am a four year varsity letter winner for basketball and have additional letters in varsity soccer and track. I am a current student at The Barbizon School of Modeling, Acting, and Personal Development, Barbizon has afforded me the opportunity to attend the IMTA Convention this summer. I have received a scholarship from Centenary College to pursue my basketball and academic career in the fall.
Who do you admire?
The person I admire most is Emma Watson, and one day I hope to be as successful as she is. She is my favorite actress and is amazingly talented, I especially love her in the TV shows American Horror Story and Scream Queens. She executes every role she is given perfectly, she inspires me everyday to become a better actress.
Why did you decide to be man/model of the week? The Barbizon School has given me so many opportunities. My teacher Ms. Deborah has always supported me and my dreams and helped me to reach them, along with my other teacher, Ms. Katrina. I’ve always had a passion for being behind a camera, and plus the more experience, the better!
