How did you get into modelling and how long have you been doing it for?
I’ve been modelling for about 3 years. I was discovered by Sara Tetro [62 Models director] at my dad’s restaurant. I had never considered it before then, I was always a bit of a tomboy.
What has been your favourite job so far?
I don’t have a favourite job in particular but my favourite modelling thing has been going overseas and modelling in Tokyo and Sydney.
What do you love about modelling, and what do you hate about it?
The best part of modelling is getting to meet new people! And the travel, of course. Also, it’s fun to dress up in cool clothes. The worst thing about modelling is having to wait – there’s a lot of waiting. You have to be very patient.
What about the rejection?
It used to bother me at the start, but now I don’t let it get to me. I don’t take it personally.
If you weren’t modelling, what would you be doing?
Well I don’t model full time at the moment because I’m at school, but I’d like to. If not, I think I’d like to own my own business – something to do with the environment. I’d love to own my own restaurant or café.
A Shakuhachi dress. Oh, and a bag.
Do you have a favourite colour?
I love food! I think probably prawns. And blueberries.
Miranda Kerr and Abbey-Lee Kershaw.
Favourite place in the world?
Home. In saying that, I really want to go to Europe and I’d love to model in New York.
What’s something people wouldn’t necessarily know about you?
I love cats. I’ve got a cat named Fluffy.
