On finally getting to model: “I’ve always wanted to model, ever since I was 12 years old. It all started when I was in Brandy Melville. That was my favourite brand at the time. I remember one of the girls that worked there was like ‘we would love to shoot you in our clothes.’ I was freaking out because I loved the brand, and I was shopping with my mom that day so I was like ‘mom, please, I’m begging you! I’ve wanted to do this for so long. You can do it, why can’t I?’ She said no, and that I was too young. Ever since then I’ve been begging and begging. When I turned 16 she finally was like, ‘okay, you can model now, that’s fine.’ I’m 17 now, so for the past year I’ve been modelling, and I’ve loved it.”
On her mother’s advice: “She’s always telling me, ‘just be true to yourself, and don’t let what other people are saying affect you or change what you’re doing. And it’s always okay to say no.’”
On using her platform: “Because I have this platform, I just think it’s super important to make others aware of the climate and the fact that the environment is something everyone should focus on. The world is everyone’s shared home – people should think of it like that and should treat it like it’s their home. People don’t treat their apartments like they do the planet, they don’t throw trash everywhere in their apartments, they clean up after themselves. I think that we should treat our planet like that. It’s so much easier than people think to make lifestyle changes too.”
The mom-daughter duo also just made a fashionable arrival at this event!
