Where are you from & how did it shape you?
My father is American of German ancestry and my mother is French-Caribbean and I have the French-American double nationality.
I am also a military baby. I moved around from Colorado, Washington DC, New York, France, Germany, California to name a few. I don’t feel like I have a “hometown,” but I have had the opportunity to roam around America and Europe freely. From it I’ve gained perspective. I’m very open to learn from different cultures.
What’d you eat for breakfast this morning?
I was on set at 7 a.m. this morning so I had half a breakfast sandwich, strawberries and 5 coffees from crafty.
What’s your hair secret?
Co-wash, leave in conditioner and coconut oil!
Favorite TV show of all time?
That 70s Show because Steven is hot.
Who’s your spirit supermodel?
Noémie Lenoir, she’s an OG who’s been rocking her natural curls from the beginning of her career.
If you had to pick any NYC neighborhood to live in for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
None. Snow and the freezing cold make me sad.
Pumpkin spice lattes: basic or amazing?
Amazing, with soy milk and an extra shot!
Fav fall trend?
Are you over chokers or do you think they’ve just begun?
Hopefully everyone else think they’re over so I can keep wearing them and not feel basic.
I love Saint Laurent but was very disappointed in the lack of diversity in the casting of their last show. Hopefully the new creative director includes black models.
Harry Potter series. I’m still waiting for my letter from Hogwarts.
I have three: “Almost Famous,” “Across the Universe” and “Straight Outta Compton.” I love the incorporation of music in films and these three films show the ups and downs of being an artist and the music industry.
What are you looking forward to most right now?
Camp Flog Gnaw.
