FF: Heather thanks so much for allowing this interview, how are you?
HJ: Its my pleasure, and i'm awesome thanks so much for having me.
FF: Okay so tell us, how did you get started, and what drove you to choosing modeling as a career?
HJ: Ever since 18, I've been modeling off and on. I don't really have a solid reason for choosing it as a career but, I do know that I've always wanted to be like the girls I'd see in the magazines. I was my dream, and I now I'm living that dream, and its been AMAZING!
FF: Don't you just love it! Okay, so in the industry some models are very area specific, so where are you or where do you see yourself in future projects?
HJ: Right now, I'd say in magazines as a lingerie model, but i'm open, and willing to try new things.
FF: That's great, there's plenty of work within that scope. I'd be great to do a Victoria Secret runway or shoot right!
HJ: Oh, I'd love that!
FF: Tell us who are some of your role models in the industry?
HJ: I don't really have any specific role models. It's not that I don't admire so of the well known's out there its, more so I don't want to be like everyone or anyone else, I'm all about creating my own look, and poses.
FF: Ain't nothing wrong with that. we love it!
FF: Okay, so tell us who would it be your dream to work with?
HJ: IF I had to pick, I'm going to have to most definitely say Tyra Banks, she is AMAZING, she's different, and watching her has taught me so much. I would love to meet and work with her, I remember watching her show Next Top Model growing up. I'd be watching imaging myself on the show as the winner.
FF: This isn't just a walk in the park, what advice can you give some of the women and men with self-esteem issues who like you also dream of becoming a model?
HJ: The way I look at is it, you can't have low self-esteem and be a model. Modeling is about being confident with yourself, your looks, and everything about you. If modeling is your dream, don't give up, and just go for it! Don't build yourself down, build you up. Embrace and love who you are! Remember to always, be yourself and stay true to yourself no matter what the cost. Take what people think and say as a benefit to you instead of hate talk, you it to your advantage, it will help.
FF: My goodness this was such a joy chatting with you.
HJ: Yes, anytime!
