Q & A

Q. What is your family background?

A. Both my parents are from New Zealand but they moved to Australia before they had me. I've lived in Australia my whole life and absolutely love it.

Q. Did you grow up in your early teens wanting to be a model?

A. Yes! I actually started modelling in my very early teens. I was 13 when I entered my first ever competition.

Q. What have you discovered / learnt from the modelling scene?

A. I've learnt that it can be very challenging. I feel like I've managed to keep a strong and level head but understand how it can be dangerous for young girls starting out in the industry. There is a lot of pressure to be a certain size or certain measurements that aren't realistic for a lot of people. I have encountered this all my life but have stayed true to who I am because I know I lead a healthy lifestyle and embrace my curves.

Q. Career highlights to date?

A. Last year when I represented Australia in China for Miss Tourism Queen of the Year and placed 3rd runner-up against 55 countries!

Q. Favourite hobbies?

A. I'm a massive foodie so I love finding new places to try. I'm also an adrenaline junkie so love to chase a good adventure when I can. I went skydiving last month which is definitely one to put on your bucket list.

Q. Favourite music?

A. So tricky! I love a diverse range of genres when it comes to music. But my favourite band is Thirsty Merc, They are Australian artists and are extremely talented. Check them out!

Q. Favourite films?

A. My all-time favourite movie is Love Actually. A romantic comedy with an incredible cast and is based around Christmas time! What more could you want in a movie?!

Q. Beauty tips?

A. I'm pretty basic when it comes to my routine but I always make sure I have a good quality face wash and moisturiser and always have lip balm at hand!

Q. What is your fashion sense?

A. It honestly changes all the time. I usually prefer quite simplistic pieces that I can swap and change with other outfits.

Q. What do you feel sexiest wearing?

A. Honestly, as soon as I put on a pair of heels I feel complete. I don't feel dressed up until I put my heels on. It can make a simple outfit look 10x better! My favourite are my black boots, I'll wear them with everything.

Q. Advice for young girls aspiring to be models?

A. Stay true to yourself and never give up! I think it's important to have a strong independence and charisma. I'll never try and be like anyone else; The only person I want to be is the best version of myself which all comes from self development and knowing who you are as a person.

Q. What's the craziest thing that you've done?

A. I would have to say skydiving was pretty crazy for me!

Q. What's the funniest pick up line you've encountered?

A. Someone came up and asked what Anzac Day meant to me followed by “would you also like a glass of wine”

Q. Favourite place visited?

A. I absolutely adored the Greek Islands. I have never been anywhere as beautiful!

Q. Do you have a role model/s?

A. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if it wasn't for my mum. She's always shown strength and taught me to chase my dreams and is always supportive of anything I do! Without her positive influence and loving nature I wouldn't be where I am.

Q. People you've admired generally?

A. People inspire me everyday! Whether it's from a small act of kindness or a strong ambitious nature. It's hard for me to pinpoint just one person I admire as I feel like I'm surrounded by admirable people who strive to make everyday a good day! I'm very lucky to have such wonderful people in my life.

Q. Are there any issues that you feel strongly about and would like to briefly discuss?

A. I'm extremely passionate about healthy body image! I believe it's something everyone faces at some stage in their life and it can be extremely detrimental!

Q. Future ambitions?

A. I hope to continue to be a healthy role model and promote body positivity to women! I believe the industry should have realistic expectations and start breaking down the barriers and embrace women of all shapes and sizes! I hope to spread the word and continue my modelling career and also hope to step into some presenting roles in the future.
