Awkward Modeling Moment: My first commercial casting in Turkey.
Most Embarrassing Runway Mishap: My second year at Angie's Showcase, a dress I was modeling was too big and the stylist had no time to tape it to me. When I was walking the runway, the dress fell from my waist up. Luckily, I was wearing a strapless bra and it was on my way back after the photos were taken of me at the end of the runway. I just walked as if it was meant to happen and then laughed about it backstage.
Most Bizarre Modeling Experience: When the boss of a company I was modeling for gave me his phone number.

How would you describe your style? My style is unique because I dress how I feel like dressing and it's never the same look. I don't stick to one trend. I like to switch it up here and there, and I never let others tell me who to be. Always be true to yourself and never let others put you down.
