When did you start off your modelling career?

I’ve been modeling for almost 8 years now I really haven’t been doing it very long. My first carnival runway was just 4 years ago and that’s the only runway I’ve ever done.

What do you do apart from modelling?

I really enjoy playing tennis, watching football and my favorite of all going to the beach!

What are your diet and fitness routines like in order to maintain your physique?

I’m horrible with diets lol, I love beers, pizza and soul food. I literally workout a month before carnival band launch season starts.

What genre/s of music do you enjoy listening to the most while working out?

Hip hop only!!!

Band launching season is right around the corner, which band/s are you excited to see launch?

I’m very excited to see TRIBE’s anniversary presentation this year and also Fantasy’s sophomore year as well. They’re always the top 2 bands.

Which band launch runway will you grace this season?

I’m not sure yet it’s still very early in the season.

How many hours does it take you to get ready for a launch?

Long! They usually require models to be there from 8am till the show starts at 11pm-12noon.

What is the best costume you’ve ever modeled?

Definitely the white Tribe costume from Sandra Hordatt when she was still in TRIBE.

Is there a ranking system as to who gets to wear a Frontline and Backline costume or does the model choose their costume?

I really don’t know nuh lol.

What is the craziest thing you’ve seen or experienced backstage in preparation for taking the stage?

Thank God nothing!  Maybe just diva moments with some models.

Which band do you enjoy modelling for the most?

TRIBE for sure because they have soooo much vibes!

Do you get any unwanted attention from male fans and how do you handle it?

Not really I get Facebook messages sometimes but they are never that bad.

Do you think models are paid enough to model costumes at band launches?

Not really the payment could be raised I think.

Is there a signature move you do on the runway especially for Carnival to try and “sell the costume” to the audience?

Hahahahahahahaha ummm the “stand and push hips to the side” lol.

Just to have fun with whatever you’re doing!

Which band are you playing with for Carnival 2014?
