1. You started working in the field of modeling at a very early age, what was your motivation, and the one thing that excited you the most about the industry?

Fashion always inspired me. I always loved to be in front of the camera as well. Doing what I love while traveling around the world has always been a great lifestyle. Being able to work with so many talented and creative people always inspired me as well.

2. What were the major challenges you faced when you started working and moved to China for your first break in the industry? 

A very big challenge was the language barrier. I did not speak English and no Chinese as well. The problem of communication was a big challenge for me. However, now I can speak both English and Chinese. Being all alone in a different country was very stressful as well. Big competition in the modeling industry seemed very hard. The intensity of the huge number of castings a day, and very long working hours. All that wasn’t easy but my persistence and belief in my success helped me overcome any obstacles.

3. To achieve dreams, you started early and parents play a dominant role in supporting you. What has your relationship with your parents been like, were they supportive?

I didn’t start my modeling career very early. I started full-time modeling at age 19. I was offered a contract at age 16 but my parents didn’t allow me to travel at such a young age. So, my first model contract was at age 19. My parents have always been super caring and loving. They have always supported my goals and dreams.

4. Is there anything you wish to have known about the industry before starting your career?

A very frequent change of the location (country) for modeling contracts was a bit of a surprise for me.

5. Talking about fitness, we see you are fit and in shape, spill your secret! How many times do you work out in a week and what’s your workout routine like? 

I am working out 6 times a week. I like to go hiking, work out at the gym, do yoga. Fitness and healthy lifestyle is my passion. I like to work out in the morning to start the day full of energy.

6. We have always believed being fit requires a proper amount of workouts followed by a healthy diet. Do you follow any particular diet and what is your all-time favorite healthy meal?

I am a vegetarian. I like to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Tofu, chickpeas, and lentils are my favorites. My favorite meal is baked sweet potatoes stuffed with vegetables and beyond meat.

7. What are your top three fitness tips you’d like to give to all beautiful women out there who are starting in the industry and consider you as their role model? 

The number one fitness tip is consistency. Every day try to do something active, a small workout a day is better than no workout at all. Secondly, a healthy diet and no alcohol. Another important tip is to get enough good sleep and drink lots of water. Being around people who love and support you is also very important in your fitness journey. Smile and love yourself, be proud of yourself.

8. The fitness industry over the years has surged, is there anyone who has been an inspiration to you in your well-being journey so far? 

Tammy Hebrew has been an inspiration in my fitness journey. Workout videos and quotes were super inspirational.

9. One body part you absolutely admire? 

My legs.

10. Awareness about Yoga and Meditation to work on mental health has increased over the past years. We for a fact know you are a yoga enthusiast, how has it helped you, and would you recommend it to others for healthy living? 

I would definitely recommend yoga and meditation. I meditate for 20 minutes every day. It helps me to reconnect with my inner-self, clear my mind, slow down and pay close attention to what is really important in my life. Yoga and Meditation help me focus on my goals and raise my vibration on success.

11. What is the advice you’d like to give our readers? 

Do what makes you happy and enjoy yourself to the fullest. You can achieve anything you set your mind to. Make a positive impact and spread love.

12. What are your future plans, any upcoming projects you’d like to share details about? 

I have a new cover photoshoot coming up soon. I am going to New York to walk on NYFW shows. As well as working on my yoga Clothing line Flex up. Planning to have other big yoga events and get closely involved in charity activities for woman empowerment.
