:: Spotlight :: Model Profile - Rachel Munyard

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

One of the loveliest models we've discovered recently is Queenslander Rachel Munyard. Rachel moved to Australia from the United Kingdom at age 12 and has lived in Australia ever since. Her parents are both South African. She first started modelling after being contacted by an agency online which lead to bigger & better things. Rachel is based across the Sunshine and Gold Coats and Brisbane, working for the Sunkissed Girls as well as undertaking her own freelance shoots where she has been able to obtain work with some great companies and photographers. Currently Rachel is studying psychology as her passion is to help young adults struggling with depression. Modelling is a strong passion and she hopes to get the opportunity to travel more with it, including being involved in more fashion campaigns.
