What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field Teko?
My goal this year is to be published and to possibly start working as a model full time in the next two years or so. I've been working as a model on and off since I was younger, but now I see that I might have a bright future and willing to do what it takes to start it.

Will Smith is my hero. He had taught be to follow my dreams and don't let anyone stop me from accomplishing my goals.
