The multi-hyphenate stylist on smoking with a purpose, life in Jamaica, and running “full face” into joy.
AS TOLD TO PATTY CARNEVALE
I’m a changing woman right now. I’m transforming into a different vessel of who I want to be. I don’t want to define myself—I want to flow. In layman’s terms, I’m a free woman, a woman who’s discovering newness, a woman who is recalibrating her world from how she lives, how she thinks, how she works, and how she dreams. One of the biggest things I took away from the last couple of years is perspective, and the ability to move into a life that I’m excited to live and away from things I don’t align with.
I was born in California and grew up between Virginia and New York. I found my way back to New York for college but then I dropped out of school and started in the fashion industry. I loved school, but it was just too expensive.
