“I don’t care to label myself, and I don’t care what others think of what I choose to do with my life.”
V: Best things about being a model? Worst things?
C: I never became a model to try to gain a public persona, nor do I like the spotlight or gaining attention. I did it because it was empowering and made me feel good about myself. Modeling is an art and it has kept my creative juices flowing.
I can’t really say that there is anything that comes with modeling that bothers me. I think that you need to have a thick skin and be aware that you will be judged for being a “model.” I don’t care to label myself, and I don’t care what others think of what I choose to do with my life. This has always been a personal passion.

C: I live a very clean and active life. I do not party or drink.
V: What is the moto or mantra you try to live your life by?
C: I don’t have a specific moto or mantra, but I keep in mind that life is only as great as you make it. You need to keep yourself happy, whatever that means for you. Enjoy and be grateful for what you have and what it is that you have created for yourself so far in life.
