Q&A

Q. What is your family background?

A. My family background is Filipino and Dutch.

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

A. Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be a model. Being my mum's first daughter she used to dress me up in pretty dresses all the time and do my hair up and occasionally have some make-up for fun. I enjoyed all the pretty clothing and being “dolled up” and I still enjoy that.

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

A. I have discovered that it is a challenging and dangerous scene to make your way into – there are many many scammers out there especially amateur photographers that you need to be careful not to get involved in. But it is a fun filled and exciting scene at the same time. You meet amazing people: MUA’s, Photographers, Designers & sponsoring companies.. get to experience wearing pricey gowns and clothing, the runway, make up styles and hair styles.

Q. Career highlights to date?

A. My biggest achievement for being a part of the modelling industry for only two years is being a part of a reality TV Show that aired on Channel 31 for 12 weeks.. and I took home the title of Miss FASX Australia 2014.

Q. Favourite hobbies?

A. In my spare time I like to catch up on my favourite TV Series or trying new activities outside when the weather is nice.

Q. Favourite music?

A. My favourite music genre is R’n’B - whats not to love? Great lyrics and beat!

Q. Favourite films?

A. Horror and thriller films are my absolute favourite. Yes, I enjoy the chick flicks, comedies and family movies but if I had to pick something dark and gruesome – keeps me on the edge of my seat!

Q. What is your fashion sense?

A. I think my fashion sense comes from favoured models/actors but when it comes down to it I will choose comfort hands down.

Q. Beauty tips?

A. Growing up I wasn’t given much advice on skin care and maintenance. I suggest if you wear make up definitely wash your face, cleanse, toner, serum, masks, moisturise! At bare minimum cleanse, moisturise and weekly mask! And make sure your inner eyebrow start in line with the outside of your nostril – I didn’t know this but its important to have great eyebrows in modelling!

Q. Advice for young girls aspiring to be models?

A. Never give up – it is a hard industry to get into. Just be yourself and true to yourself.

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

A. I think it depends on the man.. there are many men that adore their cars and others who don’t bother too much. I think they should treat women how they would like the women in their lives, mother, sister, daughter to be treated.

Q. Favourite place visited?

A. My favourite place that I have visited would most definitely be Boracay, Philippines. Have you ever been on a holiday and the last night seems to be the most perfect because you have to go home? Every night in Boracay is just perfectly pleasant.

Q. Do you have a role model/s?

A. None that come to mind. My life isn’t influenced on one person only it’s a little bit from many people.. no one is perfect so I don’t believe one person can be a true role model.

Q. People you've admired generally?

A. I’ve admired the people who have built their lives from nothing.. who always see the positive in every situation even if only a small one. People who never give up even when no one else believes in them.. they are the ones I admire and are true inspirations.

Q. Future ambitions?

A. I hope to be an inspiration to others, older and younger. Be encouraging to live your life to the fullest, be the best you can be today and better then the person you were yesterday. No matter the past you can always improve and brighten your future!
