How would you describe your style?

Still evolving. I dress androgynous and dark some days, sporty and feminine others. Depends on my mood and the weather. I just like to be comfortable.

What is one book you recommend everyone should read?

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

In 2016, I was most inspired by...

The Dominican Republic. Visiting made me want to get more in touch with my roots.

The best film I saw this year was...

I finally saw Room and bawled my eyes out while I was on a flight. The guy next to me kept laughing.

Currently I’m listening to...

Lots and lots of old-school R&B.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Flying and the ability to heal others.

2016 was...

A blessing beyond words.

2017 will be...

The game changer!
