TTR Girl|Issue 90

I got into modeling because I Sing so I wanted to make an image for myself.

MM: How did you get into modeling and what was your first experience like?

KA: I first tried it when I was 15 but I didn’t like it because i still felt awkward, didn’t know if I should pose cute or sexy (since puberty hit me early). When i was 18 thats when I took it more seriously and then I fell in love with it. Its been a passion since .

MM: Where are you from?

KA: Im from the Bronx but I’ve moved quite a lot so I’ve lived in all the Boroughs except Staten Isl. as well as Westchester, Miami, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. It helped me in life since I’ve been able to adapt to my environment and see different things.

MM: Funniest/craziest experience you’ve encountered as a model?

KA: Umm, as a model I see funny stuffall the time this business is full of surprises. You never know exactly whats gonna happen or who you gonna meet.

MM: Who is your favorite music artist and why?

KA: Cant say I have one. Im quite eclectic when it comes to music so hard to choose one when there are so many artist. Since I was born my parents played me different types of music. I can say this i love all music but 80s and 90s music will always be my house cleaning turnup music lol.

MM: What about a man/woman turns you on? What turns you off?

KA: turn off about a man are hygiene and attitude. I like confidence but cockiness is arrogent . And Sorry to say i grew up with men in my family that smelled good even after they came from the gym so hygiene is serious for me. Now, Turn ons ? well ... ambition is a must and street and book smarts ( must be both). Also men can be sensitive with their woman and maybe playfully aggresive in bed but I do like to see my man to be like a humble rock with other men. Jelousy is a huge turn offso I like when i man can stand his ground and know I’m not wandering.

MM: Where do you see yourself three years from now?

KA: Doin big things! Seeing how my last 5 yrs have been give me hope that the next 3-5 yrs will be promising. I have many plans and modeling has been something I’ve been doin consistantly and starting to see more results so its basically how the dominoe falls and how fast it goes.

MM: What’s your idea of the perfect Photo shot and with who?
