Do you have any nicknames that you go by?
I have a tattoo on my neck that says “SIPPY SIPPY.” It’s a nickname i’ve acquired because of how well i can handle my liquor. LOL!
What city are you from and how was life growing up?!
I grew in the San Fernando Valley part of Los Angeles. If you knew me growing up you would never guess I’d be who I was now. I was a little shy, chubby, and nerdy. That’s why I love “Butterfly” symbolism.
Whats your story? And how did you get into modeling?
I got into modeling when I started interning at Def Jam/Ncredbile Records (Nick Cannon’s Label).
Who is your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from other wonderful talented models, such as Jeri Lee and Adriana Lima, as well as photographers such as Nigel Barker and Russell James.
Any Future projects coming up ? What can we see u in the future doing?
I’m hoping for the best. I’m starting the launch of my website, MissElaPasion.com. It’s going to be a great platform to further market myself in my career. It will be ready within the next month.
Do you work out? And do you have any tips for us fat kids out there???
LOL I LOVE to work out. I’m a work out fiend. If I don’t work out for a while I get seriously depressed and angry. I used to be quite chunky myself a while ago. It took me a lot of determination to have the body-type I have now. If I could give one tip it would be to find a fun workout. There’s lots to do. Play a sport, take a class, or whatever. Right now, my fave is P90X, esp the AB RIPPER DVD.
You have a huge following on facebook.. Do you travel ? And if so where have you been?
Growing up, my family didn’t have a great enough income to vacation out-of-state. Also, my career endeavors haven’t had me travel outside of the country YET. However, I fully intend to that’s for sure.
What is the craziest thing that you have ever done?
NO COMMENT. lollll.

Of course you can come! My friends and I loooove to party, club, and rave it up! My crew goes HARD. Shoutouts to GREEN ACREZ FAM.
Are you single? Dating? Married? Taking applications?
I have a boyfriend that I’m very thankful for. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be a model today.
Do you like music?? What artist or band do you like the most?
It’s soooo hard to pick a favorite artist. I have so many. I would say one of my favorites is Tritonal. When I heard them live at EDC, it felt amazing!
Got Any advice for girls pursuing a career in modeling?
Never forget where you came from. No one likes a Diva.
Do you have any shout outs or anyone you would like to thank?
I would like to give a shout out to Import Fashion!!! I want to thank my best friend and most beautiful girl I know, Garling Wong. She keeps me sane. I would also like to give a big “Thank you” to M.I.T.T. for giving me the GREAT opportunity of being featured. Muah!!!
