Here is a Q & A we recently conducted with Tiffany.

Q. What is your family background?

A. My family background is half Chinese-Malay, ¼ Japanese, and ¼ Korean.

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

A. I actually grew up wanting to become an actress, I fell into modelling after winning my first competition that I entered on a dare. I believe that acting and modelling go hand in hand and both experiences compliment the other. I now have a passion to do both professionally.

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

A. There is a general stereotype that models can be bitchy, high maintenance and vain. But in my experience, I discovered that most of the girls were so lovely. We support each other and just want everyone to achieve and do well.

Q. Career highlights to date?

A. Career highlights to date would be winning both the Western Australian titles of Miss Hawaiian Tropic and Australian Swimwear Model of the Year, achieving runner up in the national final of the Australian Swimwear Model of the Year and featuring as Miss March in the Australian Swimwear Model of the Year Calendar.

Q. Favourite hobbies?

A. I love to ride motorbikes, I have a hot pink Honda CBR. I also love to travel and have just spent the last 7 months travelling around the world. In addition, I enjoy yoga, horseback riding and chilling out with a good book.

Q. Favourite music?

A. I have an eclectic taste when it comes to music, I love everything from Skrillex ​to 90s RnB to System of a Down. It all depends on the mood I am in.

Q. Favourite films?

A. Oh gosh, I love so many, I wouldn't be able to name them all! I suppose I have an diverse taste when it comes to films as well!

Q. What is your fashion sense?

A. I would say my fashion sense is smart sexy. I also love to mix it up with a touch of classiness too winkin face

Q. Beauty tips?

A. Weird, I know, but I put toothpaste on my pimples and they dry right out! Drinking lots of water is a must! Always wear primer.

Q. Advice for young girls aspiring to be models?

A. My advice would be, if it is something you really want to do, aim high and always stay positive. You will probably be rejected at some time in your life, but everyone has been there. As long as you stay focused and more importantly have fun, you will succeed.

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

A. The funny thing is that some men treat their car better than women. But ultimately no….

Q. Favourite place visited?

A. Tossa De Mar in Spain. This small gorgeous coastal town with its own medieval castle and village next to the beach.

Q. Do you have a role model/s?

A. My role model would have to be my mother, we may not always get along but she went through some very tough times to give me the life I had, for which I am very grateful. She pushes me to always strive to do the best.

Q. People you've admired generally?

A. J.K. Rowling. She created the magical world of wizards, Hogwarts, and Harry Potter, all in that head of hers! Just incredible that one person is capable of bringing so much enjoyment to many people around the world!

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

A. During my travels, I went to South Africa where I was incredibly enraged to learn of the desperate fight South Africa is in to save the Rhinos from poachers. Rhino poaching is on the rise and they are soon close to becoming extinct. One non profit organisation I strongly believe in is One More Generation. OMG was founded by two children in the US that work towards the preservation of endangered species, especially the Rhino, they focus by having children educating children on these issues.

Q. Future ambitions?

A. My future ambition would be to be happy, healthy and successful in whatever I choose to do. My heart is set on the United States at the moment so we will see what happens.
