We had no idea what to do so we just hitch hiked a ride to the university and left my car there.

Q. What are the biggest challenges you have overcome?

A. I’ve always been lucky in life; to not be faced with many challenges. But up until four months ago I was living in Queensland. I was living there for nearly three years in a small rural town west of Brisbane working in the hospitality industry where I made some great friends, but I realised that in order to get the most out of a modelling career and to represent my State NSW in which I grew up in the Miss Multiverse Australia competition. I would have to move back to Sydney. This was a tough decision to make but it was necessary one as I have met so many amazing people since I have been back in Sydney and been presented with a lot more modelling opportunities

A. With the recent issue of marriage equality I believe that if two people love each other then they should have the fundamental right for their union to be formally recognised
