I'm pretty athletic, but I'm not very strong.
I always thought models had to fit a certain mould. I never thought I had what it takes. I'm too small and my look's pretty weird.
I lived in London for eight years and I like to say that I am two parts American and one part British because I lived there for a third of my life.
I'm really not that weird. I'm a combination of a lot of different things. Maybe it's just easier to make me look weird than another model who is specifically Caucasian.
I think it's important that there is a change, especially in fashion. I'm pleased to be part of a 'new breed' of models who perhaps don't exactly fit the status quo.
