What are you most excited about these days?

These days, I’ve been most excited about learning new things, meeting new people, 

getting new opportunities. I’m still learning this whole modeling thing so it’s been 

a very eye opening experience, learning the ins and outs of this industry. Next… 

pilot lessons? Race car driver who knows.

How did you begin your career as a model?

It’s sort of a long story really. My friend is a fashion photographer and director – she 

had been suggesting I try modeling for like months and I figured f*** it why not all 

All I have to do is stand there and look pretty. 

 

She had begun working with Isabella and Harriet at LOVE magazine, pitching ideas for a photoshoot and asked me if I would maybe want to pitch something where I spoke about my experiences traveling and my love for film. 

 

I wasn’t sure at first, one I didn’t really see it as interesting and 

mostly ‘cuz I hate talking about myself and being open like that I didn’t really speak 

about that kind of stuff to people I know, never mind posting something online! 

Eventually, though. 

 

I agreed that it was a good idea and that’s when we did that 

photoshoot that eventually got me on the cover but it was what changed everything 

– it will always be one of the projects that I will be most proud of. After that 

photoshoot, I got signed.

Are there any other avenues of your career that you would like to explore? 

Oh absolutely! I really want to pursue acting, I always loved film and really just felt 

I can be an actor, and people have told me before that I should be one, but never 

really went for it now that’s all I want really, so I’d say that’s the one and only avenue 

I’m heading down, do loads of industry films, work with some of my favourite 

directors.

What does a typical day look like for you?

I honestly doing live an exciting life like at all, I wake up around 9 or 10, eat 

breakfast, check my DMs on Instagram. But if I have a shoot that day I make sure 

My face is clean like face wash and all that, check for boogers. But yeah I’m 

really not that interesting.

As a creator, how do you find ways to stay inspired?

Films and photography inspire me, they’re both passions of mine that I absolute 

love, they inspire me to travel, learn new things, probably do things I’d never 

thought to do otherwise. 

If you could switch lives with someone for a day, who would it be?

Probably a dog, to be honest. Just to love someone so unconditionally and just not 

a worry in the world except where my ball went, and how to get my favorite person 

to go for a walk with me. The joy I see in EVERY single dog’s face when that happens 

is something I wish to experience for a whole day.

If your life had a theme song, what would it be?

I suppose I’m supposed to pick a happy song otherwise you all will think something 

wrong with me, but I can’t think of one, so I’d say currently it would be Welcome to 

Heartbreak by Kayne. 

Recent binge watches?

I usually watch movies so which are hard to binge watch, but the last thing that I 

I re-watched and binged the Kanye documentary on Netflix.

What advice can you give to someone who aspires to have a Modeling career like your own?

I would would say if you really want to get into modeling dog expect to get paid all 

the time, it’s a tough thing to learn you’re getting paid through ‘exposure’, so 

defiantly have that mindset when you start, kinda like going to school, just be like 

This will benefit me in the long run.

What was your favorite part about modeling?

I love the clothing I get to wear and model, some of the stuff is a little outside of 

my price range right now so wearing designer stuff like that has made me look 

forward to the clothes I want in the future.
