Q: When and how did you become interested in fashion, and where do you find your inspiration?
A: I first became interested in fashion when my mom would take me to parties and they would admire her and compliment her greatly. I saw how at each party they would look at her in awe as did I. As I grew older and attended even more parties I tried to emulate her style without success. She later told me that everyone has their own personality and a way of expressing themselves. I never forgot that and to this day I repeat it whenever I get dressed. I started to experiment with my style and come ninth grade, I had a party to attend and I wore something simple yet modish at the same time. My friends flipped out and loved my outfit so much! I was so happy because I didn't need to dress like someone else to be content about my appearance. Ever since then I've been obsessed with fashion and anything fashion related.

Q: Do you have any fashion rules when putting an outfit together?
A: When putting an outfit together I take into consideration where I'm going, the event I'm attending, the weather, and most importantly I strive to incorporate my own little signature; something that tells others who I am and how I represent myself. After all the first thing others see is your appearance.
