"Growing up in a predominant white town as a mix kid was challenging. While discovering my identity and trying to fit in with other people I got bullied. There was a moment I realised I was different when other kids pointed this out to me. They laughed at my hair, joked about my skin color. I never had any role models growing up that looked like me. Because of this I also started not loving myself and my ethnicity. As I grew older I learned to embrace my hair, my body and my culture. The reason why I chose to model is because I want to be that role model for people that look like me. I want the media to be more inclusive and fight againts racism!"
