ABM: What part of modeling interests you and why?
Cookie: Body positivity, the fact that everyone has an opportunity to feel and be beautiful modeling is for all shapes and sizes and I’m all for that . I hated myself everything about me to the point that I wore baggy clothes up until I was 18 just to hide my body and pounded my face with makeup to hide any imperfections and after modeling I started to love myself. I started showing off my body and taking pictures and videos without any makeup and I still felt amazingly beautiful.
ABM: What is your favorite genre of music?
Cookie: I love hip hop and R&B. Being raised in the Bay Area that’s always the movement for the younger generation but I was also raised in low income gang infested areas where suicide homicide rape and children who went to bed hungry lived. I was system impacted and given a subpar education so when I listen to these artist I can feel exactly where there coming from and the fact that they were able to achieve something greater always motivated me to want and do better .

ABM: What kind of men do you like?
Cookie: I love a real gentlemen ! A man that takes charge but isn’t controlling.
