What would you most like to be interviewed about? Modeling and Volleyball and my future plans.
Tell us about your modeling career. I have always had an interest in modeling. One day my grandfather made a comment about my unique look and that I should pursue modeling. That is all I needed to kick start my journey into modeling. Thank you, grandpa, for inspiring me.
What has been the most challenging thing about modeling and how did you overcome it or how do you get past it? Feeling emotions while posing is most challenging for me. I try to put myself in a situation in my head that will provoke my emotion body language and facial emotion.
What led you into volleyball and what is a favorite accomplishment in the sport? I always admired the sport and wanted to try it. My most favorite accomplishment is making the travel team.
If you were to present a topic to a group of your peers, what would it be on and why? Be kind to everyone as you don’t know what struggles they are going through. Bullying is not cool at any age and those who were bullied, the memories last a lifetime and bullies could have crushed someone's dreams. It doesn’t take much to be kind and makes a huge difference that maybe silent but noticed for a lifetime.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years/what are your plans? I see myself in college and traveling outside Florida in 5 years. Look for Madison in issue 45 of Inspiring Teens Magazine!
