WHAT DO YOU LOVE THE MOST ABOUT YOUR BODY?
”I can’t say my ankles because it sounds really weird, but I really love my ankles! (laughs) And I love my legs. I would say my legs. And my eyebrows, but they're not really a body part!”
HAVE YOU ALWAYS BEEN CONFIDENT AND COMFORTABLE WITH THE WAY YOU LOOK?
”Yes I have, since I was a kid. I think it has a lot to do with parenting. And also, I am part Lebanese, and my body isn’t out of the normal of those beauty standards. I have never really felt like an outcast. It wasn’t until I got into this career that I felt I was different. No one really pointed it out until my blog became popular.”
SO HAS MODELLING CHANGED YOUR PERCEPTION OF YOUR BODY?
”Yeah, I’ll pick at myself for certain things that I wouldn’t before. Like, ‘I want a bigger upper lip’ – but then I see someone with lip injections and I am like, wait a second, I am so cute already… (laughs) I don’t want to get caught up in that whirlwind.”
WHAT IS YOUR END GAME?
”The goal isn’t to be a model – my main goal is to be a designer. But I can’t draw whatsoever! So I try to build a presence, and then convince brands to collaborate with me and let me design for them. So far, it works.”
