Where does your drive come from ?

I was just, like, motivated forever. I just wanted to be something great.

So, does how you're depicted on the show resemble what you are really like ?

It's really scary and embarrassing, but who I am on TV is really who I am in life.

Do you have any qualms with how you're edited and portrayed on the show ?

No. I mean, sometimes they show a lot of me being sassy and they don't show me helping people. And they didn't show my family [on the Feb. 27 home-visits episode]!

What's next ?

I'm working on my own line to show next season, so hopefully I'll be under the tents again. I'm working on a wedding dress; that's going to be fun. I'm really going to focus on showing a really amazing collection for next season. I've had some interest from some buyers, so who knows? You might see my clothes in stores.
