How did you get into fashion?
I got into fashion around middle school with just sneakers and then in high school I really took it serious, started traveling everywhere, bought a lot of clothes (shirts, shoes, pants) from whatever money I made online at the time and boom I began to have my own style and made a name for myself.
What made you want to get into modeling?
I got into modeling from the clothes I was able to purchase and so i begain taking photos since I was fortunate enough to travel a lot at the age of 16 and be able to afford what I had because of my popularity on social media. On top of that a lot of people started saying I should model and that’s exactly what I started doing on Instagram and I rolled with it.

I grew up on and made all my money from social media so to me it’s a big deal to build my businesses based off of that because it’s what I know I can do to succeed, plus it’s easier to push my brand (@Gvendetta) and myself globally to a bigger audience.
