“One of my modeling bookers told me that the most important thing egrets9-14-14004is to try to be vigilant about taking care of yourself. Get sleep, don’t be afraid to trim your hair even if you’re trying to grow it out, don’t bite your fingernails, and stay in shape. A lot is in the little things.”

“Not just in modeling, but in society, there’s so much pressure about what a woman should be, and, of course, it’s just so unobtainable. You can never become that thing, because it’s such a projection.”
