How did you get into modelling?
I’ve always had an interest in it, I just decided to give it a go! I’ve been modelling just over a year.

Favourite modelling job you’ve done so far?
I like all of them, I like photo shoots the best though.

If you weren’t modelling, what would you be doing?
I’m only modelling part time and I like it that way. I still go to school – I love school! I really do. Modelling is fun but I really want to be an architect.

Where’s your dream modelling destination?
I would love to go back to Korea and model there.

What about your dream modelling job?
A Chanel campaign.

What’s your least favourite thing about modelling?
There’s so much waiting. I hate waiting.

What’s the first job you ever booked?
The first job I ever did was a beauty job, I think… Shot by Melissa Findlay. My first runway job was a show at The Department Store.

What’s something people wouldn’t necessarily know about you?
I’m not a high heel girl. The first time I ever wore high heels was at my first fashion show (The Department Store one).

Do you have a favourite colour?
I like bright colours.

Favourite models?
Internationally, Sasha Pivovarova and Hyoni. My favourite New Zealand model is Emily Baker.

Favourite food?
Sushi.

What’s the last thing you bought?
A laptop and some socks from Karen Walker.

You’re one of the faces of the New Zealand Fashion Festival – what do you think about that?
It’s great! We had to dance around for the shoot, it was so fun. I think I got booked because of my dancing skills!

Can you draw?
Yes!

Draw me a picture of yourself?
I’ll draw a picture of you instead:
