In December 2022, she wrote a post on her Insta which said,

I’ve been very lowkey about styling my mother. What started as a joke in my apartment, when my mom said “Coco, help me put some looks together for Abbott Elementary Press” (slide 9) I laughed, and I took 2 days to create some looks and 6 months later, My mom is named one of The New York Times Most Stylish People of 2022.

When she was once asked about how Yoga influenced her life, she answered,

Anytime I feel like I need a release, clarity, or just a simple breather, I always pull out my mat. My mat is my safe place. I come to my mat, for me , and for me only. My daily yoga practice has allowed me to think about how I view myself, rather than how others choose to view me.

As a yogic person, she is also associated with a non-profit organization called WalkGood LA and highly advocates for mental health as well.

Besides, she also loves to listen to music, journal (part of her job), aromatherapy, and sunsets.

Is Dating A Boyfriend?

Well, Ivy is most likely to be single at present since her social media handles don’t give any clue about her love life. Though she is very open regarding her personal and professional life, she is yet to share her romantic affairs in the public domain.

As a result, we found it safe to consider her single, however, the probability of her having a boyfriend cannot be denied after all she is an adult.

Ivy-Victoria Was Bullied For Her Looks; Her Self-Love Journey

While growing up, she suffered an acne problem which kind of diminish her confidence as a child. While having an exclusive talk with Complex, Ivy got back to her school memories when she was taunted and bullied for her looks and skin condition. In this regard, she said,

“I’ll never forget in high school, whew, “I really liked this boy, and he came to one of my basketball games to support me and he came with his friends, and they’re all laughing at me. One day, I was like ‘why are they laughing?’  And [the guy] said: ‘The nickname they have for you is pizza face’ My heart just sank.”

She said that with acne, it comes hyperpigmentation and that really lowers her self-esteem. But with the help of her mom, some skincare routines, and self-love, she gains the confidence she has today.
