Q. What is your family background?

A. My family background is German and Polish. My grandmother was from Germany and grandfather from Poland. My mother was born in Australia though.

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

A. Yes it's something that I have always wanted to do and something I have been told I should do because as a child I was always the tallest and the skinniest.

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

A. I have learnt that its much harder than it looks. You always have to be on your A game. There is a lot that goes into one photo shoot or one runway show and you have to be in it to win it! Also, there are some amazing people floating around the industry and its no where near as bitchy as it's made out to be.

Q. Career highlights to date?

A. In 2012 I went to China to represent Australia in an international pageant called Miss Model of the World.
I am Miss Lovely Legs 2014
Miss Surfest national finalist 2014 & 2015
Miss Hunter Valley 2015
Miss Summer Stunner 2015
Miss Mattara 2015
MAXIM ASMY 2016 National finalist
I am in the 2017 MAXIM calendar
Estelle Promotional Enterprises winner 2017

Q. Favourite hobbies?

A. My main hobby would be going to the gym. It's how I relax. Also, making my costumes for my competitions.

Q. Favourite music?

A. I would listen to just about anything to be honest. But my favourite would have to be R&B.

Q. Favourite films?

A. I don't have a favourite film. I am more about TV shows and at the moment that would be Gilmore Girls!

Q. Beauty tips?

A. ALWAYS wash your make-up off!

Q. What is your fashion sense?

A. I live in two different types of clothing - gym clothes or dressed to the nines

Q. What do you feel sexiest wearing?

A. Something that hugs my body, like a tight dress.

Q. Advice for young girls aspiring to be models?

A. Don't give up. It's not an easy path to go down but I can promise you it is worth it. You will get knocked down but as long as you can get back up that last time you will succeed!

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

A. A few years ago I jumped out of a plane! That is about as crazy as my life gets.

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

A. “Is there a magnet in your pants? Because I'm attracted to your buns of steel” I had absolutely no idea what to say after that!

Q. Favourite place visited?

A. Isle of Pines. It is so secluded and beautiful. I can't wait to go back!

Q. Do you have a role model/s?

A. Apart from my mother who managed to give me a brilliant upbringing despite being a single mother on a pension, it would have to be Ashy Bines. I have so much respect and admiration for her and everything she does. She has taught me how to have a good relationship with food, given me a huge amount of motivation and how to love my body.

Q. People you've admired generally?

A. I admire anyone who is willing to put themselves out there and take the chance that I am too afraid to take.

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

A. I was brought up to accept anyone for whoever they are or whoever they want to be. I feel like even these days there are still people out there who are afraid to be who they really are, in fear of being ridiculed. I was bullied as a child and now with the internet growing and kids, teenagers and adults are getting more tech savvy they are finding ways to hurt people like never before. I cant fathom how some people could be so cruel to another person. You have NO idea what these people could be going through so what gives someone the right to say some of the things they say? What if it is the final words that have been said to someone to push them over the edge? How would you feel? Sorry I got a bit carried away there! Its just something that needs to be said more and more.

Q. Future ambitions?

A. I would love to take my modelling career as far as I can. But in all honesty I would love to pay off all my debt and travel the world (and I'm hoping my modelling helps that).

Kirstie's height is 177cms tall
