Q: Judging from your Instagram outfits we can say you like wearing any kind of clothes, but which would you say is your predominant style? In which are you more comfortable?
A: I do wear all kinds of clothes but I’m most comfortable in streetwear instead of more classy outfits.
Q: Has it been easy for you to start in the fashion industry?
A: It was easy to start of course because you just make an account and do your thing but it was really hard to grow if you ask me.
Q: What inspires you in order to create?
A: My followers that tell me they look up to me or that I inspire them to dress up/try something different, that really keeps me going.
Q: Are there any black people in the fashion industry? What do you think of that?
A: In my opinion, there are a lot and there is always room for more, of course, I like to see that because most of them are people that inspire me and let me try different things.
Q: How do you feel about the “Black lives matter” movement? How are you living this moment?
A: I think racism its something most people forget of in our community, people think that its something that only happens a few times and forget that it happens day in day out without people caring. Everything that is going on right now is for me a wake-up call to the world to remember them that there is still a lot of racism going on and that we not take it anymore. Enough is enough.
Q: If you had the ability to change the past, would you change anything personal?
A: To be honest no because everything happens for a reason and if I would change it I might not end up the same way as today or didn’t get to know people I care for until this day. I am who I am and I’ll like to keep it that way.
Q: Which message would you like to send to the world?
A: My message to the world would be: Don’t live your life just to impress, have fun while you’re at it, do you and make the best out of every moment because u never know when it could be your last.
