Hello! My name is Stefanie and I am a model,actress, and photographer ❤️
1.When did you first realise you wanted to be a model?

3.What was your first big break and how did it arise?
I started applying for acting and modeling calls online which helped me build my modeling portfolio, I was actually discovered on model Mayham which ended up with my first lead role in a movie.
4.What would you say is your biggest achievement so far?
I won a modeling contest out in New York which was very exciting considering I was a plus size small town girl from Oklahoma going against established New York models.

I go to a 2 hour bootcamp 3x a week and try to limit my carb intake.

If you want to start modeling then don’t let anyone discourage you! It’s going to be tough but stick with it and As long as your dedicated and passionate about it good things will happen!
8.What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
I was doing a photoshoot with a fellow female model and it was a water shoot and we were standing in the little pond and kept getting touched by all these little fish it scared us so bad we ending up bumping into each other and falling in.

12.What do you like doing in your free time?
I like cuddling on the couch and watching movies if I ever get the chance.

My fake blonde hair probably. Because everybody who meets me now thinks it’s real and as a child I had dark brown hair and when I told everybody that I wanted to go blonde they all said it would look horrible. So now when people see me they cant believe that my hair isn’t natural lol
