I think inspiration runs in a circular motion so here’s to hoping I can inspire all the incredible gals as much as they all inspire me. Badass Women is a series about capturing that positive energy and spreading it. Wanna help? Read about these cool girls and share their features with the women that inspire you!!
What is your relationship with beauty?
This is going to sound so corny but I think everyone possesses beauty, including me. Some have outer beauty, some have inner and the luckiest of ducks have both. I think often times people only seem to recognize or maybe even value the external form of beauty and on sad occasions of realization, that's the only kind of beauty some have going for them. However, everyone eventually ages, wrinkles, and everyone loses traces of their external youth and "beauty" and the inner beauty that resides within someone has the power to poke out and radiate to others with the potential to still touch hearts. And I think that's the kind of relationship with beauty I'd rather have-- one with inner beauty.
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
I can only open one eye at a time when I first wake up. So I'll wake up opening one eye and wait about five minutes until opening the other, too. (I've always been like this, I don't know why lol)
Name 3 things that inspire you:
Everything. Everything. And everything.
(That's the truth but if you want more definite answers I'll give you these three: dawn, dusk, and my mom)
If you could give advice to yourself as a ten-year-old, what would you say?
Hug your grandma more, don't sign up for the chemistry course your freshman year in college and the snort in your laugh won't go away no matter how much you try, start to embrace it.
What’s something you can’t live without?
What makes you laugh?
Hearing the laughter of babies. Automatic hysterics from me.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in the Central Valley of California in a small town called Tulare. We are extremely agricultural based and I actually lived on a farm for most of my life.
How old are you?
I am 19!!
If you could pick a song to be the theme song to your life what song would you choose?
Probably the first 50 seconds of Free Fallin' (John Mayer's live version) but if I had to choose an entire song I'd choose What Do I Know? by Ed Sheeran!!
What are you passionate about?
Cats. Homemade ice cream. Back scratching. Squinty-eyed smiles. The color yellow. Giving more than taking.
Talk about what it’s like to be a nude model for art classes.
Becoming a nude model for art classes in the college of creative studies is becoming quite the experience. The first time I'd ever been fully naked in front of someone (or about 20 people in this case) was during my first class modeling for those students. First time ever being seen naked. And I chose to do it in front of 20 strangers. Go big or go home right? The experience so far has been so liberating and empowering. It's really cool to see people turn you and all of your insecurities into pure art. And even though nothing new is staring back at you when you see their final pieces, you can't help but appreciate it. I can't wait to continue and be both drawn and painted in the coming weeks.
What are your tips for being confident?
"You could be the sweetest most juiciest peach, but there's still going to be people out there who just don't like peaches." That's always been a motto I've kept in my back pocket. You're not going to please everyone with who you are and what you have to offer so might as well be your truest self and attract the people who find simply you more than enough. That overrides all of the other people who don't like "peaches" so to speak.
