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 lead you to pursue modeling?
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.
Grace Wethor's Ted Talk:
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.
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 was your experience 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 are you looking forward to in the future?
I think 2017 is going to be a big year. I have so many exciting things in the works and I cant wait to see how this year turns out and to share everything I’m working on!
