Slide 1 of 5

America's Next Top Model Cycle 12 is underway, and the first two challenges were tough.

Read on to get her side of the story.

What interested you in the show?
like most people, I've always watched the show and it was a dream to meet Tyra because I wanted to follow in her footsteps. She was such a big supermodel! I actually tried out for Cycle 11 and didn't make it and then I tried out for Cycle 12 and made it!
