What is getting you through this time right now? I am blessed to have a large network of close family and friends; we all continue to check in with each other pretty frequently.  Although we aren’t able to connect in person, it is so helpful to continue to have simple, everyday conversations.  I’ve also been stepping up my physical activity – which is so important not just for my physical well-being, but emotionally as well.

A favorite quote?  “Start each day with a grateful heart”  This is my favorite quote because I feel it really helps me to keep things in perspective and reminds me to be thankful for all of the positive things in my life.

Why are you looking forward to Runway?  I am most looking forward to seeing so many amazing and inspirational friends.  Last year was my first year as a model and I was simply astonished at how warm, friendly and helpful EVERYBODY was to me.  It truly felt like a family to me.  So, I can’t wait to spend time with my “Runway family” again!
