Q. What is your family background?

A. I'm lucky when it comes to my family background as my father is a mix of Scottish and Irish and my mother is half Spanish half English. So I was gifted with light grey eyes and light hair but I'm able to tan really easily. Blonde and tanned, can't go wrong there!

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

A. When I was in my early teens I was asked to do billboard work for Billabong and Roxy which was my first ‘real’ modelling job. However I took a step back from modelling and focused on school as I really wanted to gain a scholarship into university. (Which I did)

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

A. I've definitely learnt a lot from modelling, and the number one discovery is that people are not as trustworthy as they seem. I had very little street smarts coming into the industry and was always far too trusting. I learnt very quickly to keep a guard up and not trust every individual that tells you what you want to hear.

Q. Career highlights to date?

A. Hard question, I would have to say going to Australia for the Maxim Australia swimwear model of the year comp. Being my first competition I did really well, coming fourth out of New Zealand and Australia. It was a phenomenal experience and I met some amazing girls!

Q. Favourite hobbies?

A. Working out and drawing. They're both activities that keep me focused and are my way of unwinding.

Q. Favourite music?

A. Hard to say; it depends on my mood entirely! I love everything from hip hop to mainstream, even the slow soppy stuff.

Q. Favourite films?

A. The Notebook of course! Closely followed by Green Street Hooligans, Divergent, all of the grudge films, any good horror really. Oh and let's not forget the classic kids films like The Lion King (I'm the first to admit I love cartoons, even when I'm 80)

Q. What is your fashion sense?

A. Again, depends on my mood. Can't go wrong with nikes and an oversized knit though. Although I'm a pretty coat, skinnys and stilettos girl.. I'm still all for sneakers. I literally have over 20 pairs of nikes and it's a growing collection. Kicks over heels anyday.

Q. Beauty tips?

A. Don't be that girl that cakes as much make-up as they can on their face. It's not a race to see who can run out of foundation fastest guys. Less is definitely more when it comes to make-up. Don't be that girl that's mistaken for an Oompa Loompa because they've used an entire container of bronzer on their face in hope to match their fake tan, or use face tanner!

Q. Advice for young girls aspiring to be models?

A. Be careful with photographers doing TFP, (it's basically a free shoot where you both get photographs and no payment is exchanged). If your career takes off there's no contract in place to say they are unable to put some terrible outtake of you online. Once it's online, we all know you're never getting it back. So my advice is only to TFP with photographers you can trust, and quality ones at that. No one wants an under average raw image of them floating around social media.

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

A. That depends. Is his car a Ferrari or a cheap run about Japanese import? If his car is his life then most definitely! If his car is a rusted Toyota Corolla he uses as his mcd's and KFC storage bin, then NO! If that's you guys, then treat your woman better than your vehicle, and consider getting a new car.

Q. Favourite place visited?

A. My favourite place that I've visited is America hands down. Which State however is a bit more difficult - Los Angeles, Miami or New Orleans - they were all so different, but I had the best time there out of the 29 States my best friend and I travelled through!

Q. Do you have a role model/s?

A. Of course! Definitely my mum as she's taught me great values that have made me the person I am today. Have a look at who I follow on Instagram @sez_harris it's all hot motivational women with the odd fashion page in between, if I had to choose one individual though, it would be Ellie Gonsalves, closely followed by my favourite VSA Candice and a handful of playmates.

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

A. Of course! Briefly however, no. So I'll just name the main issue, animal abuse and hunting species which are nearly endangered, if not on the borderline of being extinct. Any negativity what so ever to do with animals makes my blood boil.

Q. Future ambitions?

A. Obviously my main ambition is to make a name for myself in the modelling industry. I want to become a well spoken individual that teenagers can look up to. I long for a career which I enjoy, has a decent income and, most importantly, helps people from all walks of life whether it be directly or indirectly. I just want to make a difference.
