Everything was worth it, from the 17 hour wait in the cold 8 degree weather to interacting with other models.”- LuMi When asked who were her major influences, she simply replied “Music.” To her it’s more music as a whole than an individual artist. “The passion behind my music is immeasurable; music is my television, my escape, my language and way of communicating.” – LuMi.
