Knowing there are people like Edward Enninful or Pat McGrath behind the scenes has helped to give me confidence when I work.
I feel really blessed and proud of being Dominican because I've been able to open up many doors for my fellow Dominican models and black girls in general in the modeling industry. These days there's at least one Dominican model in every agency in the four major cities of the fashion industry. It's really just the beginning, which I think is so exciting!
I like to go to my country to see my family and my friends. I enjoy spending quality time with all of them because they are my rock.
