How did you get into modelling and how long have you been doing it?
I got told I should model when I was 13 but I never really did anything about it until I got older. My mum’s friend took me into Red 11 – that was about two years ago.
Favourite modelling job so far?
I did this shoot for Stolen Girlfriends Club/Black magazine once, I got to ride a motorbike. That was awesome. Also, once in Tokyo, I did this really cool location job in a villa beside the sea. It was beautiful.
Dream modelling job?
A job where I can make millions of dollars and all my friends are the other models.
Dream modelling destination?
What do you love about modelling, and what do you dislike about it?
I love how creative the industry is. Also, you can essentially get a lot of money for not doing too much, the opportunities, the travel and you get to meet a lot of cool people. The worst part about modelling is being cold all the time. You’re always cold on shoots. That, and getting shoes that are too big for me – I’m a 6.5. [Editor's Note: Sample shoe sizes are usually around a EU39]
Don’t have one.
I haven’t seen enough of the world to decide.
Gina Morrisey (at Red 11) – she’s really smart. My room mates in Tokyo and Ella Verberne (Clyne/IMG) – I did my first job with her.
What’s a trend you hate?
Long nails, mullets and rat tails.
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
I slept in so I missed breakfast.
What were you doing at 9:15pm last night?
I was on a shoot, getting gems put on my face.
Can guys and girls just be friends?
What star sign are you? Do you believe in astrology?
Aquarius and no, but I really like space. I’m part of the astronomy club at school.
Chucks or Vans? I’m not the greatest fan of either but I’d say Chucks.
Gold or Silver? Silver.
Tumblr or Pinterest? Tumblr.
Tall or short? Tall.
Blonde or Brunette? Blonde girls, brunette guys.
What’s does someone need to do to impress you?
Bring me flowers and ice cream – two of my favourites, and be smart.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given? Give us some advice and give us some advice for new models.
Always wear sunblock, always listen to your mum (but only if she’s as cool as my mum), and for new models: Don’t ever take rejection too hard because it’s really not about you.
What’s the last thing you bought?
Some silk to make myself a silk duvet. It’s going to be amazing.
What’s something people wouldn’t necessarily know about you?
I’m an avid human rights and green activist. I just got a job at Green Peace.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Really happy. I want to make the world a better place.
