I've been following Alex Lee for quite some time, and I finally reached out to her to see if she was interested in doing this interview. She has a very natural, innocent look, and I often find myself captivated by her beauty. Feel free to stalk her Instagram, but be warned, once you start, you won't be able to stop! Check out the interview below:

OTC: If you didn’t model, what would you be doing instead?
AL: If I never got into modeling I would probably have a different outlook on life in general. Modeling has given me so many opportunities that not every girl gets to say they did. Hopefully I'm able to pursue it full-time soon!
