You In Under 100 Words :
My purpose on this earth is to help woman see the beauty and love I see when I look at them.
Why did you decide to participate in the RAW photo shoot?
It is a project close to my heart and aligns with my own message in regards to beauty. Every woman is a natural beautiful goddess.
What surprised you most about the experience?
How easy it was to transition from the atmosphere I am used to when it comes to being in front of a camera. As a former model, I am used to having a team that creates my image, vs. me standing there creating my own image. Very empowering.
What does beautiful look like to you?
Beauty is a inner sense, or feeling of confidence, femininity, intuition and strength. The kind of beauty that shines and is attractive because it is authentic.
Have you ever had cosmetic surgery or treatments? Why or why not?
When I was younger I wanted fake breasts. I was teased for having small breasts growing up. I never went ahead with it because I learnt to love my body as it is. I feel very happy I did not go ahead with this idea.
What is your biggest fear?
I have done a lot of work around fear, and am happy to say I fear less now than ever before. One thing that comes to mind is the fear of not getting my message (of love and beauty) out into the world.
What part of aging scares you the most?
I am not afraid of aging. The deterioration of my body can be frightening. However it is the drive to live healthy now, so I can continue to do the things I love later.
What part of aging is the most exciting?
I just turned 30 years old and I have never felt more wise, strong, and more solid in my skin. It was a beautiful feeling. We cannot control aging, it happens to every single person on this planet. Embracing the wisdom and beauty that comes with the evolution of our experience makes it that much more of a meaningful experience.
On average how much do you spend each month on cosmetic items such as make-up, hair cuts/ colouring, waxing, clothing, nails, tanning, creams etc.
This is probably something I should pay attention too! haha. I love cloth shopping. Beyond that, I only buy what I need. I don’t wax or tan. I do my hair once every couple months. Nails are a spa day treat.
Who is the most beautiful woman in the world to you and why?
The most beautiful woman in the world to me, is a happy, fulfilled woman that is comfortable with who she is and what she wants. Louis Hayes comes to mind.
