How were you discovered?
I was approached as I was performing on 14st union sq with my crew.
If you want to find me break dancing in NYC come to Central Park, Battery Park, or 42st Times Sq.
Break dancing actually saved me from many things, it is a way of expressing myself and I found my personality as I learned new moves. It was exciting to show my friends that I was a fast learner and extremely flexible- some said I have an old soul. But it wasn’t easy- took a lot of practice, effort and dedication, as I got better I realized this is my passion.
When I started modeling I had the idea that this should be a piece of cake, because I already knew how to move my body, face, chin down as photographers say. But it wasn’t that easy. I noticed when I became better at dancing how much time and patience it took, I said to myself maybe it’s the same thing as dancing. I just have to be patient and not forget where I came from cause that’ll separate me from the others.
