WWD: What were you doing before you moved to L.A. and New York?
R.M.: I went to school for two years in Detroit. I got my associates degree in nursing. But I don’t want to be a nurse. It was one of those things where people were saying to me, “You should be a nurse, you’ll always have a job in nursing.” But I don’t like blood, so that wouldn’t work.
WWD: Do you ever think about what you would do if you weren’t modeling?
R.M.: I want to get back into school eventually because I want to start a nonprofit for foster kids because I was in foster care growing up. I want to have a place where girls and boys can come and feel good about themselves. I’m trying to jot down my whole business plan, but I don’t want to rush it. And I want to act, too. I love theatrics. I love to create stuff. I think I would’ve made my way to L.A. eventually.
