Hennywiz: Has being in the modeling industry affected your personal life?

Hennywiz: Overall, what has been your opinion of the modeling industry?
Da’livia: Wow!!! There’s a lot I can say but I’ll just say one thing to sum it up, there are a lot of women that have the body for this industry but not the face, attitude, personality and drive for it. Most lay around, be lazy and let their manager do all the work; not me I work hard for what I do best!!!
