Name one your strengths?

One of my strengths is Trustworthiness, I never pretend, I am who I am. I respect myself and others too, I say what I mean and mean what I say. Honesty walks along with trust.

Why did you decide to be an entrepreneur? 

Since a very young age I was introduced to the business world due to my parents’ professions. I always wanted to start a company on my own and share my ideas to the world. After helping at my parents’ businesses I decided to make my own investment company and prove that a beautiful woman can also be an intelligent woman. As well, focus on my upcoming business project that its aim is to help and provide people with what they need during the COVID-19 Lockdown at their country.

Now you are a big influence on Instagram, can you share some tips for keeping your account interesting?  

An interesting Instagram account is an authentic account, meaning that you show the real you. Your life, your hobbies, what you are doing in your daily time. Every Instagram account can be interesting you just need to find the reason you want that to happen. The “Instagram world” needs valuable content, interesting things to learn and see..Everybody wants to be inspired.

You are followed by so many people. How do you feel about that pressure of doing always the right thing, and encourage people to follow their dreams?

I took some time off last year from Instagram to focus on me and what I want to succeed in my life. The pressure of doing always the right thing I feel it everyday and not because of the social media but because of the things I do in my life, studying for my university, working for my business and maintaining a healthy mind and body. We can’t always do the right thing, but we can always do things that lead us to our true purpose of our lives. I always encourage people to follow their dreams, I get many messages from people that need help, especially when I do my Question-Answer Stories I focus my time and show them my real me and what I believe. If more people followed their dreams the benefits would be dramatic and positive. People’s lives, society, the world, would improve all together.

What do you think of Social Media as you are a huge influencer in this category?

I believe social media have a big impact in everyone’s life. I believe we should change the way we are using them, We should Impact people in a good way, and not impress people. We should never compare our lives, we should always appreciate everything we are. Unfortunately I see that’s there a lot of jealousy. This should not be a competition and I personally don’t see anyone as a competition. We are all unique individuals, we don’t have the same dreams, goals or brains. 

Who has been the biggest influence on your life? 

I believe that my parents have been the biggest influence on me as I have grown up. They have distributed their attributes to me, creating a dynamic woman of passion and motivation.

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a doctor, a pediatrician or a  child psychologist. I love children and I had this desire to help them secure a fair shot at growing into the best versions of themselves that they can be in life, something that I firmly believe every single child deserves. I was also a volunteer at my American high school and taught children how to play volleyball when I used to play professionally. And at Doctors Without Borders. 

What did you learn from your biggest failure? 

We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that’s life, understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of the success. 

How and when did you start into modeling?

My first modeling experience was when I was 3 years old, I had my first fashion show. I then continued having photoshoots for a big children clothing brand and with tv commercials till the age of 6. At the age of 6 I stopped everything, my parents made the right decision for me to devote to my school. Then I started modeling again at the age of 17 at my last year of high school, I was chosen for the Cannes Fashion Week walked for many designers and after I left for LA to continue my career and studies.

Who are some of your favorite models and designers and why? 

Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad they know how to dress a woman like a queen. And also Karl Lagerfeld, he was a big influence in the fashion industry he was the creative director for my favorite brands and he really elevated them. 

I admire Chanel Iman, Chrissy Teigen. I personally admire models that can do more than just modeling. My favorite supermodel since a young age is Naomi Campbell, she’s the definition of being “fierce” in a good modeling way.
