How did you get into modelling?
I’ve been modelling for three years. I was scouted three times. The first time was by Ursula at Clyne, at the mall – I was in K-Mart when she approached me. The second time was by someone at 62 Models. Both times I wasn’t really ready. The third time was by Ursula again, at the airport. By then I’d come around to the idea.

What do you love about modelling, and what do you dislike about it?
I love dressing up and playing different characters. That’s the best part about it. The bits I dislike are the waiting, and being away from home.
What about the rejection? The need to stay a certain size?
Honestly? Weight can be hard. Being healthy is good though. Rejection is hard too but you learn to get over it.
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
A bagel with salmon and bacon. And cream cheese. And salad!
What were you doing at 9:15pm last night?
I was watching TED – it’s really good.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modelling?
Having babies. …No, I’m kidding! I’d probably still be at school.
What’s a trend you hate?
I’m starting to hate button up shirts on guys – shirts buttoned right to the top. Also, skinny jeans on boys.

What’s does someone need to do to impress you?

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
