My name is Natalie. I’m from CT born and raised. I currently attend the University of Connecticut, where I will earn my B.A in Sociology and minor in Criminal Justice. I have a bubbly personality which is expressed towards all those that met me, however when it comes to working hard I am very dedicated and serious. I wish to take all of the things I’ve done in my life and be able to ask myself years from now “did I make a difference?” Through modeling I have been able to not only express my own individuality but also show that art brings people together no matter their background. I have been a freelance model for quite sometime now, so for those who aren’t sure what freelance is, it’s when you do everything on your own. I prefer to be a freelance model because it keeps my modeling career a passion and art instead of a business proposal. Don’t get me wrong I would love to sign with an agency if the cards were in my favor. Moving forward I have truly come such a long way and I would be here today without the helping hands of humble photographers, designers, MUA, hairstylist, etc. All of those people who saw the real me and what I could do, I thank them. My aunt told me about longevity, and it really sunk in. “Become successful without having to stand on the necks of others”. This means figure out a way to become successful without having a chip on your shoulder. I have taken this quote and applied it to all aspects of my life. In doing so, I am able to have something to show.
For one day if life had no rules, what would you do?
If life had no rules for one day I would sit down with the young community of urban cities and tell them that they are and can be someone. Living a street lifestyle isn't the best especially when you have the resources around you to make a difference
Tell me three important things about yourself
Firstly what's most important to know about me is that I'm in college. Second I strive for success of myself and lastly I work hard in all aspects of my doing no matter how big or small. Everyone and everything matters and I love to uplift people.
Who would you consider a role model and why?
Who I would consider to be a role model is my mom. My mom raised me and my little brother as a single mother and did the best she could. She pushed me and now I will be the first to graduate college in my family. Also she doesn't give up on anyone.
What is your definition of success?
My definition of success would be walking away from college with a knowledge in order to help those around me. Success is earned through hard workers and dedication. You've become a success when others see it around you before you speak.
