MV ASKS: How old are you?
MV ASKS: Where is your hometown?
MV ASKS: Who is your mother agency?
MV ASKS: What is one fun fact about yourself?
I can twist my arm all the way around!
MV ASKS: When and where did you first get scouted?
When I was 13, I was at a clothing show with my mum. It was an amazing experience I am forever grateful for!
MV ASKS: What first inspired you to begin your musical and acting career?
My dad is actually a musician and has always had a studio, so as a kid I would go in there messing around with my sisters and cousins
I went to acting and dance classes after school and used to perform in shows.
MV ASKS: How do you prepare yourself before a shoot?
So for my skincare routine, I don’t tend to think about it too much, but I always make sure I cleanse and moisturise daily to ensure I am ready for my next job and even on off-duty days.
MV ASKS: What is your favourite cosmetic brand and why?
I love Obagi, it does wonders for my skin.
MV ASKS: What is the best career advice you have ever received?
Someone close to me told me, that every step back there are two steps forward.
MV ASKS: What do you think is the biggest misconception about the industry?
The biggest misconception is that our jobs are glamorous and just so easy. Of course, there are many perks but most models are living out of a suitcase not knowing where they’re staying one week to the next, or in a model house crammed with too many people inside.
Our days are often long and we are always on our feet, so it never really stops! So, I guess if I could change something about the industry to help reduce these misconceptions, it would be for an uprise for the in-between sized models.
MV ASKS: What has been your favourite shoot to date and why?
I had this one shoot where I got to hold reptiles such as snakes and lizards and even a skunk! It was my idea of heaven. The pictures in the magazine looked awesome and were shot in an amazing location house so this was definitely my favourite shoot to date.
MV ASKS: Take us through a typical day of what you do and wear when you are off duty?
When I get a day off, I like to go to the countryside to visit my grandparents, they’re my world
If you ever catch me off duty I’m most likely wearing a tracksuit or something comfy, occasionally I’ll wear boots but mostly trainers.
MV ASKS: What advice would you share with other models who sometimes feel judged and suffer from anxiety?
Dealing with anxiety is not something I’ve mastered but I’ve learnt to breathe and try hard to be at one with nature whenever I can, nature is my best medicine. Even just going for a walk in the park can drastically change your mood!

I just want all girls and women to know that I'm my own biggest critic, I want you to know that you're smart, powerful and beautiful as you are and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Because of experiences in my life sometimes I don't want to leave the house, sometimes once I've got ready I'll look at myself in disgust because I hate the way I look. I'll feel like I'm just not good enough to go anywhere, I'll feel like everyone will judge me and a lot of the time I avoid people because of this. I know probably it can come across rude and I hate that but it's just major anxiety that I've suffered for years and I sometimes just need a smile or a hug. This probably stemmed from years of being bullied at school and when i started modelling from 13 years old hearing that I'm not tall enough, that I need to lose weight, that my bums too big, my hips are too wide or my skins not perfect probably didn't help but I'm so grateful and proud to say that my industry IS changing and thank goodness now it is not every day that I feel like shit & it is becoming less and less and somedays, like this day shooting for @honeybirdette I truly loved and embraced my body, wearing and loving every piece of lingerie that I tried on made me feel amazing, thank you ❤️ #honeyBirdette
MV ASKS: What has been your favourite experience with MV so far and why would you advice other models join our community?
My favourite experience yet would be going to Paris for an incredible Chanel event, I was very grateful to be able to collaborate with one of my favourite brands and also be around the fab MV team.
