Q: Where are you from? What school did you go to and what are some of your main interests and hobbies? A: I was born and raised in Sacramento, California. I am the youngest of three children and I am the baby of the bunch. I was Baby Haley until I think I was 15 or 16. I am very blessed to have a close family, but most of all I love spending time with my grandparents and cousins. I also have a very close relationship with my sister and brother whose kids Isaiah and Mackenzie I am the proud auntie to. I just graduated from Consumes Oaks High School Class of 2014. WOOHOO! And I plan on attending school to become a Pharmacy Technician. My hobbies are shopping and hanging out with friends, because I enjoy trying on clothes and modeling them. Q: What’s your background in modeling? When did you get started and why? Was it for the glamour, the money or just the fun of it? A: When I was 6 years old, Tyra Banks inspired me. I loved America’s Next Top Model, and that is when I knew I was going to be just like her. I told anyone who would listen that I AM American’s Next Top Model. Not sure if they heard me but I meant that. While shopping with my mom we had a chance encounter with a cool woman, lol, which made me keep bugging my mom to let me see if I could in fact have the opportunity to become a model – not just a model but America’s Next Top Model. Funny thing is my mom sat on the information for about a year before acting on it. I think I kept bugging her so much that she finally looked up the agency and called them. The rest is history, LOL! Q: Who are some of your favorite models and designers and why? A: Tyra Banks, Cynthia Bailey, Naima Mora and Tyson Beckford. Vera Wang, Christian Louibitan, Giuseppe, Steve Madden, Christian Dior and Alexander McQueen. They are my favorite designers because I love the way their clothes and shoes both look and fit on me. I think the clothes they make are designed well. With the shoes…they are not only gorgeous but they last because they are made from quality material.
