Hey y’all, what’s good!! I’m from Boston, MA. I currently live in New York, NY. I study Psychology and Dance at Marymount Manhattan College. I just turned 22 years old in October. I’m a dancer, singer, and model.
How did you discover modeling and get interested in it?
I use to watch America’s Next Top Model and pretend that I was a supermodel. No joke. I would pose and take pictures as if I was going to be on the cover of Vogue or something (which I will be someday!!!).
I started modeling when I was 16 years old. In 2014, I walked and danced in a fashion show for PUMA “New Looks” in Boston, MA. I’ve always wanted to be a model…I never thought too much of it as being a “career.” It just kinda happened!
What do you love about being a model?
I love lingerie and I LOVE modeling the more “sexy” kind of stuff. It’s dope shooting music videos too!!! I’m grateful to have worked with some of my favorite artists including: Kodak Black, Wolf Tyla, Fat Joe, and Cardi B. When I was younger I dreamt about doing this kind of work. I looked up to J.Lo a lot.
My favorite part about working is that it never feels like work, because it’s what I love! How dope is it that I get to channel my inner superstar as a “job”? It brings out a different kind of confidence in me. I grew up being really shy and was always scared to fully express myself and be vulnerable.
But being a model in 2019 has pushed me to be more “out there” in the best way possible. I’m learning to love my body more everyday, imperfections and all.
Which is a memorable modeling experience you have had that you can share with us?
Just recently I got booked to do an e.l.f. cosmetics commercial. It was my first commercial ever!!! That day I was all over the place, running from class to the shoot. I think we were on set for a good 5-6 hours, which was to be expected. We filmed the commercial at a luxury building’s penthouse that overlooked Times Square. It was breathtaking and surreal.
I shot a scene where I applied their new liquid glitter eyeshadow in the bathroom mirror – to then change into my next outfit so that I could go off in the party scene. That experience was the most fun I’ve ever had working. I made some really good friends that I’m sure I will be working with a lot more in the future.
What is a typical day like for yourself?
Hmm.. a day in the life of Victoria? Usually on weekdays I have school. I generally have 1-2 classes a day. This semester all of my classes are in the morning. Disclaimer: I’m not a morning person…I hate waking up early. I’m probably the grumpiest person ever at 8 am, but I figured it would be easier for me if I got all of my classes out of the way in the beginning of the day.
Besides school I have photo shoots, music video shoots, auditions, and you know regular people stuff like eating and sleeping! Oh yeah I can’t forget the weekend! I love to go clubbing with my girls!! You can catch me at 1 OAK in NYC busting it down any weekend. I practically live there now..
If you could time travel, what will you like to witness or visit?
I would go back in time to witness MTV’s Making The Band 3. I was and still am a HUGE fan of the show. I was only 8 years old at the time Danity Kane became a band. I might’ve been young but I still remember all of the choreography and songs from the show. Also Diddy if you see this, I’m ready to be on the new reboot of the show. Put me in a band!!!
Do you believe in any superstition?
I don’t know if it’s a superstition but I believe in angel numbers. Lately I’ve been seeing the numbers 333 and 444 everywhere. According to astrostyle.com, “333: Align mind, body and soul and 444: Home base calling.” If you look it up, it’ll tell you more details about what each angel number means.
Oddly enough, what those numbers represent and stand for are in congruence to where I’m at in my life right now and I feel it on another level. Astrology is weird man!! But so magical, I love it. I’m a Libra sun, Gemini moon, and Cancer rising. As you can tell now, I like to follow astrology and I have apps like The Pattern and Co—Star on my phone that I look up to religiously.
What is a lame or awkward attempt a guy has tried to know you?
I’ve had guys tell me that they’ve met me before or know me from somewhere. My favorite part is when they pull up the “Jjajang Mami” music video, and say that they could be my Jjajang papi. Get a better line y’all. There’s already one in my life.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Victoria. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
This was dope! And I think being sexy is being true to yourself. You look good when YOU feel good. Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise.
