Tell us a little about yourself: I'm 15 years old and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I go to a magnet school where I major in fashion design and take fashion merchandising classes. I have loved fashion ever since I was little. I remember dressing up when I was four years old with sunglasses, fake nails, a purse, and high heels. I even have a photo of it. I also used to go into my aunt's closet and try on every single pair of her high heels and walk down the catwalk (the hallway). They didn't even fit me back then. Lol! I love sketching, making garments, and going on my social media for fun. I have one older brother and one younger sister. When you first meet me I may be quiet and shy, but once you get to know me I'm talkative and nice.
How did you get involved in Fashion Club at your high school? Well I actually heard about it and I thought it would be fun so I joined it!
What kinds of activities do you do at your Fashion Club meetings? The activities are all fashion related. We sketch, put outfits together, and even make our own garments.
What is one of your proudest accomplishments? One of my proudest accomplishments was becoming a Top 20 Semi-Finalist in the 2012 National American Miss Nevada Preteen Pageant.
Tell us about your YouTube channel: I make fashion videos about hauls, what you can wear in different types of seasons. I also make videos about my life like vlogs, and I make videos just for fun like my sister does my makeup, the sister tag. I also want to combine my creativity so I did a video on how to make an inspiration board! I started making videos from watching Bethany Mota (macbarbie07) which inspired me. I love showing my personality and who I am through my videos.
What’s a fashion trend you’re loving right now? Stripes is one of the trends I am loving right now. Very simple but cute!
Who do you follow for fashion inspo? Bethany Mota for sure, because I love how she dresses. She has all kinds of styles—edgy, boho, girly, etc.
Do you have plans to attend FIDM? Yes, FIDM is my dream college, because 1) I am going to be able to major in something I love—Fashion Design, and 2) live where I always wanted to live when I was little—Los Angeles, CA!
What are your career goals? My career goals are to travel the world promoting my clothing brand, participating in fashion shows, photo shoots, interviews, and so much more. I want people to know that I have a passion for fashion! My one most significant goal that I want to achieve is to leave with a legacy.
