Describe a favourite childhood memory:
My favourite childhood memory was, me and my best friend use to dress up and do a runway show for our families. My sister and her best friend would do our makeup, hair and dress us up and our brothers would vote who was best dressed and best talent.
What element of your job do you enjoy the most?
The element I enjoy most about modelling is the friendship and people you meet while traveling and working. You end up making such amazing friends that you know you will be friends for life. It makes my experience modelling so special.
As a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was a kid I wanted to be a vet as I absolutely loved animals and wanted to be able to help them.
What do you see yourself doing after your modelling career?
I see myself working as a special needs teacher at my old primary school and also giving back to my community.
If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Tiny Dancer by Elton John as my dad used to play that song all the time when we were little.
