Who is your biggest influence? And why?
I would have to say Rihanna. I admire her and all that she’s accomplished but if I had to pick someone that I know it would be my dad. He’s so kind, thoughtful, and just the best person you could ever meet. I really look up to him. You can say I’m a daddy’s girl.
My favorite event hands down was Something In The Water in Virginia Beach. I had the time of my life with people that I loved. It was the last time I was with a big group of friends from college before we all grew apart. I’ll always have the memories to last me a lifetime.
Do you have any regrets in life?
Not doing the things I wanted to do sooner. It doesn’t matter though, because I’m doing them all now and I couldn’t be prouder of myself.
Favorite lesbian/queer celebrity.
Any fun facts or anything else you want our readers to know?
My favorite color is lavender. I’m a Libra moon. My sun and my rising are in Capricorn. I’m obsessed with black-owned designer handbags. I love to travel and eat amazing food. I’m really big on switching up my style and wearing things that are bright and bold.
