1. You recently made your debut in the fashion world. What attracted you to this industry and how has it enriched your professional journey?

I love the openness of the fashion world. You can see all different shades of colors, no weight restrictions as curvy models are now at their peak, and all sexual orientations. Creativity makes people free. It enriched my journey as I love posing for photographers almost like for a painting.

I am lucky enough to have a diverse background. So I know what appeals to different communities. I am also sensitive, so I am highly attuned to people. It gives me an advantage to spot the good trends.

3. You have an established career as a nurse and Pilates instructor. How do these two roles complement each other in your daily life?

I know how I am going to treat my children. I know exercises to do. So it’s very good for my family life. I bring an understanding of sports to nursing, and in Pilates, I am all ears for my body.
