Describe yourself in under 100 words.
I like to describe myself as happy. I’m pretty outgoing and like to have fun. I love to laugh more than anything in the entire world. Passion drives me. I’m focused and driven to achieve my goals.
Beauty can be defined in so many ways. What is your definition of ‘beautiful’?
BEaUtiful. Anyone who can be themselves and embrace it. I think everyone is beautiful inside and out in his or her own way.
Why did you decide to participate in the RAW photo shoot?
I love the whole idea of RAW and am excited to have had the opportunity to participate.
When do you feel most beautiful?
When I dress up.
When (if ever) do you not feel beautiful?
When I don’t get enough sleep.
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.?
I try to stay pretty low maintenance when it comes to these things so probably around $50-$100.
Have you ever struggled with confidence, body image or insecurities in your life?
Everyone struggles with these things in their own ways. I’ve had days where I wake up and look in the mirror and don’t like what I see, but hey, I’ve learned to embrace who I am and not care what anyone thinks of me.
You produce social media strategies for some of the top artists in the world. So often these artists appear to have the perfect lives – amazing clothes, millions of fans, the luxury of traveling to so many incredible places. When we compare our behind-the-scenes to their highlight reels it can be kind of depressing! Is there anything that fans/followers of these people should know that they might not understand just by looking at their social feeds?
There’s a lot you don’t get to see that happens behind the scenes. Every artist on our roster has a huge heart and integrates a give back component into everything that they do. A lot of fans may think that these celebrities are “perfect” but everyone has their own flaws and insecurities that they may struggle with on a daily basis. Celebrities are human just like me and you.
