Not many editors look as good as you do.Have you ever thought to yourself, ‘That girl ain’t poppin. I could do better for that shoot.’

What advice do you have for any aspiring models?

The way you get ahead is taking care of your health, mind, and body and being EASY to work with, not by being EASY in bed!
