Such an absolute honor to have you on Playboy! What are the plans this year for you? Travel! I’ve always wanted to travel the world! Now with the world being more open, I want to take advantage of my youth and go to places such as Greece, Ireland, Spain, and Bali.

What is at the top of your list to achieve the most in the year 2022? Definitely living every day like it’s my last and working hard at my modeling career.

What does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent, ambitious woman? It’s about owning who you are! I consider myself a unique person. There really is no one like me. It’s about accepting your flaws and loving yourself no matter what people say!

What would you say makes you stand out in the industry? I’m not the average cookie-cutter model. I like to incorporate my edginess and own style into my shoots. I love showing my personality and being different.

Where are we most likely to find you if not in front of the camera being glamorous? Spending time with my friends, going on hikes, and writing songs!

What are some of your biggest passions? One of my biggest passions is music. I love to sing and write my own songs. Music has always been such a positive outlet for me. I love learning about spirituality and ways to heal my body and be as healthy as possible. 

3 ultimate deal-breakers when it comes to men? Bad taste in music, emotionally unavailable, and lazy. 

What are some of the things that attract you to a man? Confidence, it’s really all it takes to get my attention. Someone who understands me and makes an effort to make me happy. My ultimate attraction to a man is humor. I love to laugh.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? I see myself settling down with a family, having lots of animals, and owning my own business.

What is the wrong way to approach you as an admirer? Acting desperate for my attention or arrogant.
