How was it shooting for AMIHAN? What was your favorite piece?

Shooting with AMIHAN was such a fun experience! While I pose for pictures all the time, this was the first time I was really “modeling” clothes. I’m so happy that my first experience could be with AMIHAN, everything felt so natural and not overly posed. I really got to be myself and play in the clothes. While I am obsessed with the Tee, I have to say the dress was my favorite piece! The dress spoke to me, which made modeling it a piece of cake! 

Tell us your favorite place to travel?

Oh man, that’s a hard one! In the United States, I love going to the cities, my favorites being New York City, Boston and Los Angeles. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to Japan multiple times(fun fact, I’m half Japanese,) and there my favorite cities are Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto. I hope to travel to more Asian and European countries in the coming years. I like traveling abroad because culture really intrigues me, how daily lives in different countries are so different, but can also be so similar. 

What's your favorite thing to do in the summer?

Well being a figure skater, I’m more of a cool weather gal then a warm weather gal…. That being said, in the summer, you’ll find me working on my tan and drinking iced coffee. I’ll either be getting my tan on at the pool, or getting my tan on while going for a run or doing some outdoor yoga. 

Give us a workout tip!

My number one workout tip is to find inspiration. If you’re inspired to do something, it will make that task less of a chore, and you’ll be way more likely to stick to it!

What inspires you?

What inspires me? I think setting achievable goals and surrounding myself with positive energy inspires me most. Setting goals has always been import to me, because it helps me stick to my plans. Plus then when you achieve that goal, you get to have a little party for yourself, and who doesn’t love a good self love party right?! Positive energy is also so inspiring and motivating. In today’s world, I think too many people get caught up in all the negatives, and forget all the positive things they have going for them. When I need a pick me up, I’ll just give myself a smile in the mirror, and that will usually help. I try to smile as much as I can, because you never know, a random smile to a stranger could make their day!
