How did you get into modelling and how long have you been doing it?
I’ve been modelling since April. I sent my pictures to a few agencies, long story short, I signed with Clyne.
Favourite modelling job so far?
I did a shoot for Lutefisk with Jessica Sim and Dan Ahwa. That.
Dream modelling job?
When I was 13, my friend’s sister was in Canvas magazine nearly every weekend and I really, really wanted to be in it. I’ve already done it so I can retire now (laughs). But I guess I would have to say a Prada show.
Dream modelling destination?
What do you love about modelling, and what do you dislike about it?
I don’t understand how people can’t like things about modelling. Maybe it’s that I haven’t done it long enough to be jaded, but when you’ve worked at Lollipops Playland for $8/hr you really appreciate modelling as a job. Some things have taken getting used to (castings, etc), but there’s nothing I hate about it.
What about the rejection? The need to stay a certain size?
Rejection doesn’t phase me now. I don’t think about it – I got to castings and then forget about them and if I get the job it’s a bonus. I used to eat the most disgusting University food. Being healthier is good – I feel good about being good to my body.
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
Poached eggs on toast.
What were you doing at 9:15pm last night?
I was at my friend’s house. It was her flatmate’s birthday – we filled her room with 500 balloons.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modelling?
I’d be finishing my degree – a Bachelor of Fine Arts.
What’s a trend you hate?
Fur. I don’t really mind if it’s second-hand though.
Chucks or Vans? Chucks, but Vans for skating.
Gold or Silver? Gold.
Tumblr or Pinterest? Tumblr.
Tall or short? Tall.
Blonde or Brunette? Brunette.
What’s does someone need to do to impress you?
Genuine people impress me.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Don’t squeeze pimples on your chin.
What’s the last thing you bought?
What’s something people wouldn’t necessarily know about you?
I’m obsessed with Kill Bill.
What do you want to be when you grow up?

As always, more photos on the tumblr.
