Claim to fame: Model. Most recently featured in a campaign for American Eagle and the Trey Songz music video "Love Face."
What is it like to be garnering so much interest as a model nationally, while living in Indianapolis?
When the Trey Songz music video came out, I was overwhelmed. I received so much love from Indy, but nothing in Miami (where Rudolph often travels for Wilhelmina Models), because it seems like every other girl is on a billboard there.
How have you handled that transition?
Being 21 years old, I do love to party in South Beach, but when I see girls who are 17 in the clubs with older men at 5 a.m., I think ‘This could be my daughter.’ I’ve managed to build a good network with people that I trust, who influence me in a positive way.
Everyone has his/her own recipe for success. What’s yours?
Surround yourself with positive and knowledgeable people. Be selective about your circle of friends. Not only continue to follow your dreams but make them a reality — a continuous journey, and always create new goals.
What’s next for you?
Heading to New York City — and I would love to act. That’s my goal for later this year. I’m going to take classes and get an acting coach.
Who would be your dream co-star?
Angelina Jolie, because I think she can play any role. I admire her work tremendously and her personal life as well — tabloid rumors don’t matter to me.
What’s the best rumor you’ve heard about yourself?
People say I look like I have had too much plastic surgery.
What advice do you have for young people looking to start a modeling career?
Stay true to yourself because there are a lot of snakes out there and people who will try to sell you dreams. If it’s meant to be, it will happen. Don’t degrade yourself or settle for less than the best. It’s not worth it.
If you could have one last meal in Indianapolis, what would it be?
Anything from Le Peep.
Who is your favorite local celebrity?
Indianapolis: Love it or leave it?
Love it! This is home. It’s where I got my start and where my support is. I always aim to grow, so leaving Indy to further my career in a larger market is definitely an option.
