Wow, this episode was a roller coaster of feelings from the beginning to the end! The whole thing was very unpredictable from walking in our underwear at Bryant Park in front of the supermodel coaches, which was completely nerve racking, to modeling Juicy Couture (For Real?!?).
I think it is funny how in life we can find ourselves doing things we never thought we would do. I can already tell that I am really getting to know myself through this competition and I am a lot braver than I thought!

Season 2 of Oxygen’s “The Face” premieres tonight at 10 ET and we’re excited to see supermodel Naomi Campbell joined by new mentors Lydia Hearst and Anne V. Before watching the main event, we got a chance to interview one of the model contestants from the show–Sharon. This beauty from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, considers herself a tomboy at heart after growing up in a family of all boys. In this rapid fire Q&A, we ask the 24-year-old about what makes her stand out from the competition, her modeling experience and growing up in the DR.
Did you always want to model?
No, not really Ha! I always wanted to act, but back in 2010 my brother convinced me to do a casting for the fashion week back home. While I was participating I had an amazing time and realized I could do both =)
