Tell us where you grew up? (childhood, family..)
I grew up in Southern California, the oldest of five kids. I was homeschooled when I was younger, so my family has always been extremely close!
Have you experienced bullying? If so, explain.
I definitely did when I was in high school. I had people call me names and talk behind my back because I was fat. There was also some cyber bullying.
When was the first time you realized your worth?
I spent a lot of time learning how to love myself through journaling, therapy, selfies, and so many other things. I remember the first time I looked in the mirror and felt my self-esteem increase was when I realized my reaction was “damn, I’m adorable! I love what I see!”
How important is a sense of humor in hard times?
A sense of humor is EVERYTHING. It helps keep a silver lining in the dark clouds and reminds you to see beyond the immediate.
What’s your favorite “Sexy Outfit” to wear?
I love a little black dress, especially with some sort of sexy detail like cutouts or mesh or lace.
What’s the best advice for self-care?
Take the time to do it! Five minutes everyday is a great starting place that can make a huge difference.
What are you up to currently?
Hiding in bed with my yorkie Mookie, is my favorite weekend pastime.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Kicking ass and taking names!
Give one piece of advice to your younger self…
It’s going to be okay. I promise. Know your worth and own it.
Who is your biggest inspiration?
My mother and grandmother. They have taught me so much on drive, patience, kindness, generosity and style.
