Happy to have you on the cover of Playboy! Can you tell us what the inspiration behind this photoshoot was? The inspiration behind my Playboy photoshoot was being able to capture the vision I have always had for myself on the cover. I wanted to express myself creatively and push myself out of my comfort zone while showing off my flirty, playful side. 

Best place you have ever been to in the world? Greece is my favorite place to travel because of its unique combination of gorgeous beaches, rich history, stunning natural beauty, and warm hospitality. I love exploring the tiny fishing villages that dot the coastline, swimming in the hidden coves, and hiking through lush forests.

What are some of your biggest dreams you hope to achieve? I am fulfilling one of my biggest dreams right now by being on the cover of Playboy. Playboy, to me, has always been a community that I have wanted to be a part of that is full of joy, and excitement and embraces sexuality. Much like Playboy, I aspire to explore new possibilities and push boundaries.

What helps you decompress and relax? Taking a bath is one of my favorite ways to unwind and indulge myself in some self-care. There’s something incredibly sensual about slipping into a warm, bubbly tub and letting the cares of the day slip away. I love how the water envelopes me, soothing my skin and relaxing my muscles. But the real reason I love taking baths? It’s the perfect excuse to indulge in a little flirty fantasy. As I soak in the warm water, I can’t help but imagine that someone special is joining me. 

Who has been the most influential person in your life and why? Many people have impacted my life in meaningful ways. Still, the one person who stands out as my most significant influence and inspiration in a meaningful way is my best friend, Kimberly. She has been a constant source of love, support, and guidance throughout my life and has taught me so much about what it means to be a strong and compassionate person. 

How romantic are you? On a scale of 1 to 10, I am most definitely a 10. I like to think of myself as someone who exudes love, passion, and affection in all aspects of my life. However, when it comes to being a romantic, I am attentive, caring, and thoughtful, always going above and beyond to make sure my partner feels special. 

What makes you the ultimate partner to have? The ultimate partner to me is someone who inspires you to be your best self and is your biggest cheerleader. A good partner is someone you can trust entirely and grow with as a person and always have fun with. 

How important is sex to you in a relationship? Sex is one of the most important things to me in a relationship. Not only does it help strengthen the relationship, but it provides a way to stay connected with one another.

What is your idea of a really good time? My idea of a good time is a well-thought-out romantic dinner. I adore dressing up in heels and a stunning dress to share a fantastic meal. There is something so intimate about sharing a meaningful conversation and enjoying each other’s company in a relaxed and intimate setting.

Any word of advice to fans on the right way to approach you? I love meeting fans! Always feel free to say hello and just be yourself. I will always greet you with a warm smile.

Thanks for taking the time to speak to us, any last words to our readers? I have always dreamed of being a Playboy Playmate, and I am so thankful for this opportunity. This opportunity has allowed me to pursue my dreams and achieve my goals. I am grateful for the support and encouragement I have received along the way, and I am excited about the future and what it holds
