TB: How does fashion allow you to express yourself?
A: I love expressing my emotions with my clothes. Being able to wear what I want enables me to gain confidence through my clothes, because I am almost, in a way, going past the norms of what society believes I should wear.
TB: How would you describe your fashion sense?
A: I would describe my fashion sense as spontaneous. I don't really have a specific style when it comes to my outfits; I can be super girly one day and wear all black the next.
TB: What inspires you and your fashion sense?
A: Most of my inspiration stems from [the fashion of the] late 90's to the early 2000s. I also like to dabble in some trends in our generation, but I aIso like the "model off duty" look too. If I were to list some people I get inspired from they would be Kendal Jenner, Ángel Moret, Madison Beer, Alexa Demie, and Niki Demar.
TB: Where do you like to shop?
A: I like to shop at H&M, Urban Outfitters, Reformation, PacSun, and best for last I love to thrift.
