​London is the Big Smoke, New York is the Big Apple, but Los Angeles is the City of Dreams, so we hit up the Pacific Coast Highway with photographer Columbine Goldsmith to shoot the coolest kids in the place where dreams come true.

Where are you from?
The city of angeles.

What do you do?
I'm currently a student in my freshman year of high school. When I'm not at school I'm usually with friends, singing, thrift shopping, at some show, or modelling. I've been modelling since I was very young and it's what I love.

What are you wearing head to toe?
Well right now I'm wearing suede creepers, a long black crushed velvet circle skirt, a bunch of old necklaces from numerous places, and a black Dolce & Gabbana backpack my mum's friend gave me.

How would your friends describe you? 
I've asked my friend Sydney to answer this one for me. "She's outgoing, crazy, spontaneous, and the best at making friends. She compliments everyone and always notices the good about them before the bad. And regardless of her feelings that day she's confident as hell. She stands up for what she believes in and no one can mess with her."

What song are you listening to on repeat right now?
Oh boy well I've just got back on the plane and during the whole ride I was playing The Knife's album Deep Cuts. Im also always listening to Sleigh Bells, Treats is their best album. I mean the song Kids is one of all time faves. Plus loving OG Maco right now. Jeez sorry that was a lot.

What's the best thing about being young in 2015?
Everything! I feel like I'm in my prime. I'm at this point where I've been granted a lot of freedom and I'm at the age where that's just so beautiful. I love being able to run around and give no fucks. It's beautiful. Being young is like a drug except it last so much longer.

What's the best party you've ever been to and why was it so good? 
To be honest, I hate most people my age and don't like to party with them. I prefer going to shows around town. I love music so much it's such a part of my life, so anywhere with music is perfect for me. I guess you can find me at places like The Smell a lot haha.

If you could ask the world one question and get the answer what would you ask?
I would ask everyone to love more and hate less. As simple as it is every bad thing that happens in this world is either due to a lack of love or an outlet of hate.
