HELLO OUR MOLL MAGAZINE MODEL OF THE YEAR! MANY GIRLS DREAM OF BEING (MTOY), CAN YOU TELL US WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE PART SO FAR? I love the whole process! First, getting to do an amazing shoot, which is always a great learning experience. Then, watching those pictures become sets, and then those sets go on to being part of a whole issue.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AN AMERICAN TO YOU?
To me, it means we are blessed with freedom!
THE WORLD IS LISTENING… YOU CAN SAY ANYTHING… WHAT DO YOU SAY?
(insert cricket chirps here)
FAVORITE 4TH OF JULY HOLIDAY PASTIME?
Two years ago, I got to go to my first Drive-In on July 4th! Fireworks, movies, & popcorn, it was pretty awesome!
SHARE WITH US YOUR INNER GEEK, WHAT INTERESTS YOU IN LIFE…
Music Theory! I love to analyze music! Plus, it helps with writing or arranging songs, etc. I also love sci-fi & horror movies, graphic novels, classic rock trivia. I could go on, l have a lot of interests, lol
IS MODELING AN EASY JOB OR MORE STRENUOUS THAN PEOPLE REALIZE? AND HOW SO?
BOTH!There is a lot of planning and work involved, & modeling is also a skill that has to be honed. I love to shoot, and the creative process involved, so I feel very lucky to get to do it.
GIVE US (5) FACTS THAT PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU..
1) My first word was “meow”
2) I can tie your shoes with my toes!
3) I have a minor speech impediment that makes it difficult for me to roll r’s. Not a big deal in english, but try speaking any latin based languages without rolling r’s!
4) I was able to start correcting above speech impediment when I started singing in Italian for classical voice lessons. Music is therapy!
5) I can put a beautiful spiral on a football & love to play catch with my friends!
IF THERE WAS ONE THING THAT YOU COULD DO TO HELP SAVE OUR WILDLIFE WHAT WOULD IT BE?
One thing we can all do to help all animals is to put some food & water out for stray animals, especially when the weather is really hot or cold. I am really empathetic to the suffering of animals, and can feel overwhelmed worrying about helping them. So, I feel that even just helping the world right outside the door in some way helps the big picture. If we all do a little, the whole world benefits.
THE ULTIMATE PHOTO-SHOOT YOU DREAM OF?
So hard to choose! I’m feeling pretty beachy right now, let’s say I would love to be shooting somewhere tropical!
WHAT’S ON THE PERFECT PIZZA?
