Occupation: Fourth Grade Teacher and Team Leader at Galway Elementary School
Personal fashion philosophy:"Being voluptuously built, brown and natural, I often feel that people try to put me into a box as to say that if you are these 'things' then you cannot be stylish. Well, I don't subscribe to any of those perceptions. I love the idea of smashing the hell out of those boxes and just being me! I adore luxurious fabrics, simple cuts and bold colors. I want to wear anything that makes me feel good."
