Best things about Bikini Modeling? Worst things? Bikini modeling requires a lot of self-confidence, but definitely can be so much fun during the shooting process. I think modeling in general is not easy as it seems. You need to hold the pose, show your personality to the max, make the right facial expression… So, there are a lot of things that have to be on point.
Bikini modeling in the fitness industry helps to represent your physique and to see the progress. Best thing for me is actually seeing the progress and seeing myself growing and achieving things.
“It’s all about that. Don’t forget about the confidence! The best way to see it is in the eyes.”
Any advice for those looking to get into modeling? Just be yourself, and you need to trust the photographer and the team. It’s all about that. Don’t forget about the confidence! The best way to see it is in the eyes.
What is the motto or mantra you try to live your life by? I’m definitely a fighter. And I feel like we need to fight to be happy. But, if something is not working out for you… This means let it go. Breathe and love. Something better will come your way.
What keeps you busy? The idea of being successful and making accomplishments in life keeps me busy and always on the go.
What is your view on tattoos? I look at tattoos as art. Some of them are really cool and have an amazing story behind them. I love the idea of how you can use art as a story teller. I don’t have any tattoos on my body and I’m not planning to get any. But not saying “never”!
What three clothing items you can’t live without? Bomber jacket, bodysuit, high-waisted jeans. PS… I’d name more, but since it’s only three… [smiles]
What is your dream job? This question has me thinking so hard, because I’m still searching for myself. I still can’t decide the industry, but no matter what I’m gonna do, it should be something exciting and creative. I can’t stand boring jobs.
What do you do to stay in shape, or are you just a genetic freak? I’ve heard so many times, “Oh girl, you so lucky!” But nothing is given. Everything is earned! I never stop working out, and even though my diet changes from time to time, I always keep in track of what I eat.

First thing that comes to mind when you hear…
…”Donald Trump“: Well… everything that comes to mind is not really appropriate. So, let’s skip it.
