What has changed since you “Broke the Internet” this week?
As of right now the only thing that has changed is the amount of people who follow me on social media. The amount of support and love I’m getting from people to follow my dreams is also something else that has changed.

What was your first reaction when you went viral?
My first reaction was to call my mother and tell her everything that was going on because I couldn’t believe so many people were sharing and liking my pictures.

Has it to big modeling contract?
On Wednesday March 2, 2016, I signed a contract with The Bienaime Agency.

So most of the women reading this want to know, are you single or with someone?
I’m currently single just focusing on building my modeling career and finishing school.

What inspired you to get into the modeling industry?
I simply knew this was an industry I could really be successful in. I felt like my look was unique and could bring something a bit different to the table. Another reason why I pursued the modeling industry is so that I can take care of my mother who hasn’t worked in over two years because of a stroke she had which temporarily disabled the right side of her body.

How long have you been modeling?
To be honest, I’ve only been modeling since Friday, February 26, 2016.

What is the strangest thing your friends will say you do?
LOL Not sure if it’s strange but my friends are always complaining when I constantly touch my hair, pull it, twist it, or just hold it in my hands while staring at it.

Upcoming projects?
A few major upcoming projects that I rather not speak on at the moment but definitely more photoshoots with Bienaime Agency

When it’s all said and done, what do you want to be remembered as?
I want to be remembered as someone who loves people, Always there when you’re in need, and someone who fought for everything he believed in and chased his dreams.

Any final comments?
I just want to thank God for continuing to bless me and my family. Thank you to everyone who is supporting me and cheering me on, I am truly appreciative of everyone.
