Hi, I’m Justine, a native New Yorker who became a model by chance when I was scouted at Union Square. It took me by surprise but when I accepted the role as a model, I saw the importance for the world to see more diversity in beauty.
I’m very passionate about nature; the nature within us and the nature outside of us. For 3 years now I have fine tune in creating my own compost and juice with sheddings, things I’ve learned from volunteering at local gardens. I’m planning to start my own business that is an eco-friendly and women-empowerment driven collaboration between organizations of Native Americans and alternative energy. In the meantime I support designers and mentors by modeling for them or taking their lessons on how I can better contribute to the world, starting with myself; in vegan food, in conscious awareness of what I am buying, and in creating on my own to meet my needs and reducing my waste.
I want to be a Role Model in the sense of what I looked up to. When I was growing up with Princess Diana, Mother Teresa, and Aaliyah. These ladies carried themselves with grace in their beliefs and helped cultivate compassion from the world. I believe we need to be responsible for what is going on in the world on every level, socially and environmentally. We cannot just hope things to get better, we need to take a stand in our beliefs through actions and true intentions. The small steps we take to better ourselves are what will make a strong impact in world, but you must start with yourself.
