"I`m 3/4 Filipina and 1/4 Chinese. I grew up in the Philippines, but was actually born in Hong Kong. My family moved to Los Angeles, CA when I was 5 years old, and I`ve been here ever since. Believe it or not, I attended Catholic school. I guess it`s true what they say about being cooped up with strict rules, you go buck wild!!! Anyhow I was never shy, actually, I`ve always been exceptionally friendly. I was always the most talkative one in class, I could never help getting in trouble. There was never a dull moment in school. Then came high school. Finally no more uniforms! I attended Hoover High in Glendale, CA. I don`t really have that much to say about school because I ditched. Ha ha, yup. My friends and I always found something better to do. Be it hanging out watching soap operas or gossiping the whole day, as long as it wasn`t in class. I had to buy merits to graduate. I either had to do after school clean up or sell tickets. I took the tickets, about $350.00 worth of tickets. I hit the epitomy of laziness when instead of selling the tickets, I bought all my tickets. My parents had a hard time with it though. Boy did they have a hard time. Hey what can I say I was a teenager. However my mother never let my mischief go unpunished. She was exceptionally strict with boys (what mom wasn`t!) Overall they knew I was a good kid, a bit of a screw ball, but they knew I was no criminal. I was 20 years old when I started modeling. They both had heart failure when they realized what I did. I was certain they would chop me up to little pieces and send me to Timbuktu. Thank God they didn`t. It had to be some kind of a divine intervention that I`m still here. My first modeling experience was for a calendar shoot. It was a calendar for colored women. I guess it was flattering that I was picked for the project, but I felt quite awkward. I worked with two of the other models. And my jaw dropped straight to the ground when I saw them. They were both golden brown with booty for days and I felt so pale and figureless. The second calendar I did which was 1999 Pacific Coast Happas was the one that introduced me to the import scene. The company was promoting it in car show events and that`s how people got to know me. I loved the response I got and that`s why I continue to model. I`ve started to branch out in different sectors in the modeling industry. Then I started to get into glamour photography, working with different magazines. It made me so happy seeing my pictures published. I called all my friends and told them to go check out the news stands. I never thought I would make a living doing what I love do. I don`t even consider it a job. It`s tooo much fun to be considered work.
