Playing soccer and the ukulele, and, of course, modeling.

Celebrity crush:
Chris Pratt, for now anyway.

How would you describe your style?
Very boho and sort of hipster.

Any fashion regrets?
In middle school, I only wore soccer shorts, T-shirts and tennis shoes. So basically I looked like a boy.

For mismatching different color palettes and layering articles of clothing.

Where do you shop in Des Moines?
Mostly at PacSun, Forever 21 and Ragstock.

What is the only piece of clothing/accessory you couldn’t live without?
My black skinny jeans.

What is an essential aspect of your look?
Definitely my hair.

Always up for:
A good laugh.

Never up for:
Eating meat, because I’m a vegetarian.

Fear conquered:
Getting my picture taken while a lot of people are watching me.

Not quite there yet:
Open casting calls. I love them because they give me opportunities, but they make me so nervous.
