You know, you can't just expect to come in
and be a great walker.
I've been taught by the best of the best.
Really watching a lot.
When you are taken into the world of fashion,
they want to teach you and take you under their wing.
We start with crawling.
Have you ever seen a cheetah walk?
Everything moves together.
You know, I think it's really important
to find your method.
I can't see anything.
But I can feel everything.
And I think finding your inspiration in the outside world
will always come back in a really relatable way,
to the people who watch you on the runway.
It's gonna feel weird at first.
Trust your feet.
It's always left foot in front of right foot.
If you go right foot in front of left,
like everyone's gonna know.
It's embarrassing, it's like social suicide.
When I'm walking in a show,
I usually just black out.
You want to be like grateful but not excited.
Hungry but not starving.
Honestly, the world is your runway.
