Southern Illinois University, Sophomore
THE COOLEST PLACE TO PARTY ON CAMPUS IS…
There are a bunch of cool spots to hit up in Carbondale, but I’d say the top two are Stixx (80’s night is the BOMB) and Levels, where last year I saw Lil Wayne, T-Pain, and Chanel West Coast!
I MAJOR IN…
I’m majoring in mass communications, but am also interested in photography and journalism…basically anything that has to do with creativity. I would one day love to be a creative director and/or direct and produce short videos and music videos.
OH YEAH, AND YOU SHOULD PROBABLY KNOW THAT…
A few things you should know about me: I was just recently signed as a curvy model. My main goal is to change the fashion industry by having healthier models for young girls and women to look up to. If I can help just one person feel more confident about their body and themselves as a person, I will feel accomplished. I’m also half Bahamian (my mom is from the island of the Bahamas) and I LOVE Justin Bieber.
IF YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?
I would love to travel to Greece or Bora Bora; they look absolutely breathtaking. With that being said though, I would accept a plane ticket to almost anywhere on this planet.
DESCRIBE YOUR LAST FRIDAY NIGHT.
I was jamming out to ‘What Do You Mean?’ on repeat.
WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE MISS COED 2016?
SIU and the city of Carbondale itself haven’t gotten as much recognition as many feel it deserves, so if I can bring a little more attention to a great college and town, I’d be honored!
IF YOU COULD GIVE OUR READERS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
My best piece of advice is to be nice to everyone you first meet. Don’t let looks, status, gender, rumors, etc., stop you from treating someone you know nothing about yet kindly. A smile is the best ice breaker!
