Q & A

Q. What is your family background?

A. My family background is from Africa and England

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

A. I have been modelling since I was 5 years old and have always loved the fashion, beauty, spotlight etc. I knew when I was 5 that this is what I wanted to do.

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

A. I have discovered that if you want to get anywhere in this world doing what you love, it's going to be time consuming and it's going to be hard. You can't just give up otherwise you won't get anywhere in life. It's not about how you start, it's about how you finish!

Q. Career highlights to date?

A. I am a personal trainer and own a gym with my partner in Perth WA. I have also just started my own entrepreneur business in travel. I have also completed my Certificate IV in Education Support and did some work experience as a Teacher's Assistant for Year One's.

Q. Favourite hobbies?

A. My hobbies include modelling, kick-boxing, tennis and dancing

Q. Favourite music?

A. I love almost all types of music. My favourite would be drum & bass, dub-step, R&B, Hip hop and 80's. I cannot stand death metal music!

Q. Favourite films?

A. My favourite films include Million Ways To Die In The West, Inglorious Bastards, Pulp Fiction, The Notebook, Grease, Wolf of Wall Street, and Edward Scissorhands.

Q. What is your fashion sense?

A. My fashion sense depends on the weather. In summer I wear a lot of maxi dresses. Nice bright colourful clothes, shorts, singlets, crop tops. In winter I love my blue or black denim jeans, knee high boots, ugg boots and nice warm jumpers.

Q. Beauty tips?

A. For my beauty tips I would say what helped me is to moisture twice a day (morning & night). Make sure you always take your make-up off at the end of the day to prevent pimples. I also don't like wearing a cake face full of make-up, I'm very natural with my beauty.

Q. Advice for young girls aspiring to be models?

A. My advice for young models - no matter what industry you are in, whether it is modelling, fashion design, singing, dancing etc. there will always be high competition if you really want to succeed in life. Never give up! When things get hard that's when you work even harder to get the results you want!
Don't ever let someone pressure you into doing something you do not feel comfortable in. Just be yourself and love yourself. Don't wish you were someone else because there is only one you in this world, Show the world what you are all about and people will love you for that! There's nothing sexier then someone who believes in themselves!

Q. Do you think a man should treat a woman like he does his car?

A. A man should treat his lady better then he treats his car! A true man will always put you first and show you off to everyone. That's when you know you have found your Prince Charming … that's only if you treat him the same back as well ladies. It goes both ways.

Q. Favourite place visited?

A. My favourite place that I have visited would definitely be Thailand. It is such a beautiful country, full of warm loving people. So much to see and do there as well.

Q. Do you have a role model/s?

A. My role models are, honestly, myself, my partner and my parents. You can't trust a lot of people in this world. I have had to learn the hard way so I just trust in those very very close to me. Now, that way I never get disappointed anymore. Everything that I set my mind to, I will always achieve no matter what. I believe in myself and do the best I can to make my life what I have always wanted it to be!

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

A. Look, this whole world is full of big major issues that I‘m sure 95% of people would agree with. Today's society is not a very nice place anymore. That is exactly why I stay away from negative people and surround myself around positive loving people like myself. My motto is, ’ you are who you attract in life'. It's as simple as that.

Q. Future ambitions?

A. My future ambitions are to be successful in my two businesses that I am running with my partner, while being the best role model I can for my 2 year old son.
