N54: Hi CC. Thanks for taking the time to sit down and talk to us. So to start, tell us where you are from and when did you start modeling? I’m from the small tourist town of Wisconsin Dells, WI. I started modeling in August 2011, which is crazy now that I think about it. Everything has happened so fast! It started with a small shoot in Chicago and has taken off from there! A lot of people had been telling me that I had the curves to do swimwear/lingerie stuff, so finally I just did it.
N54: Are you currently still in Wisconsin? Yes, I still go to school in Wisconsin, hoping to get my bachelor’s degree in Political Science in Spring 2013. One more year! Thank god!
N54: So. Are you single? Married? etc.? I am single right now. This is my time and I just want to focus on business. I’m also only 20 years old, so I have lots of time to date. I’m definitely not in any rush to settle down.
N54: Who are your role models? I would have to say that the person I look up to right now is Kim Kardashian. I know, I know, everyone is sick of them. But she made an empire out of her name, that’s a business woman!
N54: What is the biggest misconception of you? The biggest misconception people have of me is that I’m an attention seeker. It’s hilarious because I’m the total opposite. When somebody comes up to me and says they’ve seen my pictures I go into a shell. I don’t know why! It’s weird. I didn’t think I’d be like that when I first started modeling. I’m not embarrassed, I just get really shy.
N54: What is your favorite thing about modeling? My favorite thing about modeling is definitely meeting new people and going new places. So far I’ve traveled to New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, & Miami. And everyone I’ve met along the way has been great. Los Angeles is in the works right now, I’m crossing my fingers!
N54: SO how is the industry treating you? It is hard being in this industry and living in Wisconsin because I’m so far away from the big cities where everything is happening. I do intend to move, but I promised myself that I would get my degree before. Because if all of a sudden modeling doesn’t work out, what would I have to fall back on?
N54: Thats smart thinking. Its always good to have something to fall back on. What song would you say describes you? If there was a song that could describe me it would be “Go Girl” by Ciara. The first line is “I’m the incredible, super sexual, call me CC”, so I obviously fell in love with it after I heard that!
N54: What is your favorite thing to do outide of modeling? My favorite thing to do outside of modeling is to read. I’m such a bookworm, I don’t think a lot of my friends even know that about me. I would die if I met James Patterson, I think I’ve read almost every book of his.
N54: What is your real name and how did you get your nickname? Sierra is my real name. CC is a nickname I got in elementary school, I can’t remember who gave it to me, but it stuck. My dad is the only person who still calls me Sierra. Even my professors call me CC.
N54: So how do you keep that AWESOME Physique? I stay in shape by working out, point blank. I usually workout 6 days a week, spring break messed that up haha, but I’m back on track! Diets don’t work for me. The more I can’t have something, the more I want it, so I stay away from diets. I just try and eat healthy, of course I mess up sometimes, but for the most part I have good eating habits. There is zero junk food in my house, and that helps a lot! I would love to get into acting or voiceovers. With both you get to pretend to be somebody else and let loose, I think that would be fun.
N54: Do you feel underestimated in the game becasue of your age? I think a lot of people underestimate me because I’m so young. I’ve realized that a lot of models are way older than they look. I’m always the youngest when I go to group shoots. But I keep up! They realize that when the camera starts flashing haha.
N54: Any thing interesting in the works for you? This year I think I’m most excited to turn 21, I cannot wait. It will open up a lot of doors in modeling because right now I can’t work for alcohol companies, promote clubs, host parties, etc. But come June 11th, I will be all over! I’m celebrating my birthday in Vegas, June 11-14, I think everyone in the world should fly in to party with me!
