I have to try to feel beautiful because I never feel beautiful in my life, you know what I mean? Because I have other things to worry about. I have two babies. I'm so busy. I never feel pretty.
My mom and dad always supported me, too. Even though I left home at 15, my mom travelled with me until I was 18. That always made me feel stronger, knowing she was there.
I don't think of myself as pretty. I am what I am.
The most important thing is how you are inside. And if you're happy inside, you glow and look prettier.
I always make sure to have options from sneakers for walking around a city, to heels for an event or a nice dinner.
You have to be able to discover a new personality every day because it’s really important to be versatile and give the client what they want.
Sometimes I felt discriminated against for being ‘too beautiful’ and like I didn’t get jobs because of that.
