On paying it forward: “If a young model asks me for advice or if I can help them, I will. I’m very much supportive of young artists, young photographers, young models. There is nothing wrong with sharing; I think you should. And I never do it expecting anything in return.”
On the modeling industry today: “For shoots, we used to have these amazing trips, and now it’s just get there and start, in and out. Time is just… shorter. But that doesn’t mean she can’t meet the challenges that our current moment demands. I still have to deliver my end of the stick, and I love what I do and the enthusiasm is the same.”
On making the move into television: “Models used to get a hard time when they wanted to cross over into something else. And to be so supported, I really didn’t think that would happen. I feel very blessed for the opportunity to be able to express myself in a different way.”
