Fashion trends you love: I’m really into stuff like Rick Owens, goth ninja, drop-crotch sweats and big ol' parkas. I can never pull it off but I think they’re pretty sweet.

Tell us a secret: When people see me at first glance, they do not realize that I’m really athletic. So, I think people are kinda shocked that you can be artistic and athletic.

Whom do people say you look like? I was told that I look like the Wendy’s girl. The girl with the red hair.
Fashion trends you hate: Cargo shorts are the worst things ever.
