Please tell us a little about your background.
I’m a Midwest girl. My mom is from South Dakota and I grew up in Minnesota. I went to elementary and middle school in Minnesota and then I moved to L.A. when I was 13.
What gave you the push/want to be a model?
When I was 13, I was diagnosed with a Brain Stem Glioma Tumor. There is no standard treatment for my type of tumor so I decided to go towards more natural approaches. I really focus on eating healthy, holistic treatments, and following my dreams. After being diagnosed, I started pursuing my career.
Do you have a schedule or a routine when you go to work?
When you go to a print shoot or a day of filming you never know what to except. One day you could be inside against a white backdrop and the next you could be on top of a building in -20 degree weather. But one thing that I always have to do is school because I am a minor. So that’s usually as close to a routine as it gets.
What inspires you lately?
I’m in love with my neighborhood. I live in Beverly Hills, two blocks away from Rodeo Dr. I often find my self walking around and looking at the architecture and the stores. I love living so close to the stores and being able to see all of the collections in person; instead of looking at pictures of them online.
From what i’ve read on your Instagram bio. you seem to be battling with a brain tumor (I send you healthy and happy energy,)is there one person or playlist that helps ease what you're going through?
For sure. I’m always listening to music. My music taste is very old school mixed with new. Last year I bought a record player and I own every single Lana Del Rey album on vinyl. Lana Del Rey is playing 99% of the time in my house.
If there was one plaza, nook, restaurant (just any general place) you could spend hours at, where would it be?
There is this tiny all natural Cafe in Minneapolis called Tao Foods. All of the food is so good and they have so many cool nicknacks in the store. I love going there, getting a green juice, and just chilling.
What was your most treasured memory when modeling for Chloe?
The Chloé shoot was a part of a project for Teen Vogue X Parsons and we shot it in the middle of Times Square. It was super awkward because there was a bunch of people watching. We also shot it in the middle of the street and almost got run over by a bunch of cabs. It was crazy!
What do you love most about the fashion industry?
Definitely how everyone can express them selves any way they want. You can wear what ever you want and you can create what ever you want. Also, everyone is so creative and I love being around people like that.
What are you looking forward to in the future?
