When did you first want to be a model?
I wanted to be a model from the time I was a little girl. I always posed and made facial movements in the mirror like the models did in the magazines.

I have not always been a confident person, but since I’ve had this opportunity I have developed good social skills and am much more confident in my appearance.

Jeans with a cute top and a nice spring dress with heels.

Who is your favorite designer?
I have a few: Michael Kors, Calvin Klein and Dior.

What has been your best experience so far?
I would say working with the crew and staff from Amazon Live – a new segment called Style Code on Amazon.com. I have met so many new and exciting people along with many celebrities.
