A: Urban Outfitters, Dickies, Carhartt, Vans, Calvin Klein, Bershka, I like thrift clothing as well, I love so many!
Q: What do you find yourself doing most to pass the time when you are not busy with school or other important tasks?
A: I’m learning Italian on my own. I also work out and I’m learning how to cook now that I live on my own. I love hanging out with my friends, spending time with people, and I also enjoy very much watching sunsets as much as I can.
Q: Do you find yourself to be more of a person who loves to travel, or are you the type of person who finds comfort in sticking close to home? – If you love traveling, where has been your favorite travel destination?
A: I’m more of a traveling person, I have in mind to travel as much as I’m capable of because being in every country in the world is one of the things I want to do all my life. My favorite travel destination it’s been Tokyo and Greece.
Q: If you had to think of yourself quite a few years into the future, what do you hope most to see?
A: I’d love to see myself modeling and still be studying in the field that I love, what I’m studying at the moment, which is nautical. I want to see myself really happy and working on my future.
Q: Name one thing you love most about social media and one thing you think should really change?
A: I love how easy it is to connect and get to know new amazing people every day or to find every interest you have, I think that’s a very dope thing. I think we should really change how these social media things work, people always get worried about how they look on the pictures they post, editing them and adding filters and filters. Everyone is unique, and they don’t show it because of shame or fear. In my case, I never use filters or edit my pictures, I always post on Instagram without filters, showing the real Iam, me. That way, I show everyone that I love myself and I’m not ashamed of my “imperfections”.
