Q: First off I would like to thank you for taking time out to do this interview with us.
Thanks for choosing me to be a part of your incredible website and music scene!
Q: You have a very exotic mix of Brazilian and Cherokee, who is who in your family?
My mom is Brazilian and she still lives in Recife today. My father is of Cherokee Indian descent.
I was always the type of girl that wondered what if and how come, I loved science projects and even won a few science fairs in my days. I also was really into dance and cheer squad! Coming to America at age 8 and not being able to speak English made life tough at first so I received a lot of attention growing up in small towns outside of Dallas TX and Tulsa OK, because I was Brazilian, but soon enough it was my dance talents that people recognized as well. I actually learned to speak English through my education of dance, so dancing is very important to me.
Q: So how did you get into modelling?
Ever since I owned a Barbie Doll I wanted to be a muse, or an inspiration to other girls to look pretty and feel pretty! My first modeling job was for local Miami artist Black Dada, we did a photo shoot to promote his latest single “Naughty Girl”, it was an honor to work with such a talented staff and a great musician. From there I booked my first music video for another Miami artist Swazy Styles for his “LIKE THIS” video, which again was a lot of fun and I met so many great people. After that bookings started coming in and I hope that my good luck continues…
Q: I see you have an impressive resume Playboy Girls of Golf, Maxim,and also a Nuvo spokes-model, these are all very prestigious events/titles to have how much do you enjoy it?
It’s fun! Meeting new people and going to the HOTTEST events in Miami, who could complain, right? I hope though being more involved in public events I will be able to use my start power to shine a light on a charity that is near and dear to my heart, like Mutts n Models http://muttsnmodels.org. Mutts n Models is a group of caring models that work on a volunteer basis. They serve as a support team targeting the same goals as do the rescue centers with which we align themselves; to help prevent animal neglect, raise awareness. They are not a shelter, nor do they collect funds directly from any of the events. I urge everyone to do what they can to get involved today!
Q: I see you did Soulja Boy’s “Wet” video. What was working with Soulja Boy like?
Soulja Boy was very cool, very relaxed and down to earth and REAL! and it made working with him so much fun! Also got to give it up one time for Jon Bertorelli of http://vulpinefilms.com/ for making an incredible video!
I would love to work with Soulja Boy and Vulpine Films again in the future!
Q: How much does hip-hop influence your life?
Hip Hop is a HUGE influence on my life! Its my favorite style of dance and my favorite style of music, well I love rock n roll too!
But hip hop has the beats that make my body move!!! nuff said, LOL
Is there any such thing as normal? I mean usually I wake up and walk my puggle, Kaya (she is like a daughter to me and we even have the same birthday), I make my boyfriend and myself breakfast and then got to school, and then tan and work out. But it never happens that way LOL, I always have a booking or something crazy, and we are running around all day trying to be at ten different places at ten different times, lol.
