"When I'm not in the office, I'm in front of a camera"
First of all, did you have fun on the Modibodi shoot?
Yes, it was a great day! Thankyou for having me.
What is your favourite part about being a woman?
I like to be classy, elegant and sexy, all at the same time. It's empowering to be a woman. I feel very happy in my own skin and like to uplift other women too.
In the modelling industry, have you ever faced any challenges? Have you felt as though you needed to change a part of yourself or what you looked like in order to be viewed a certain way.
Yes, I've faced many! I've faced a lot of rejection from agencies (when I first started out). Ive been called awful names, had weird photogrpahers etc. But it's all part of it to be honest. No job is an easy ride .
What challenges do you think women face in today's society & how to you think we should tackle it?
We are always discriminated against, it's just the way of the world. I just don’t listen to people when they say I can't do something. You can do anything you want. Be patient, women are very patient anyway, and realise that the world will put women in a separate box, and then take life by the horns!!
What’s your favourite Modibodi garment & why?
I love the Modibodi Pink Printed underwear. They are so cute and so comfy! I also love the fabric choice, very silky.
What’s your ideal day look like, how do you keep your mind, body and soul nourished, entertained and challenged?
My ideal day starts with a few strong coffees and a day where I get a lot of things done. This can be work or just errands, because I'm usually so busy! I like to exercise, at least 30 minutes to an hour. I like to drink coffee/tea during the day and have a healthy lunch, usually sushi :) To nourish my soul I do something for me, listen to my fav music on Spotify and see a friend.
What’s your grand plan or purpose in life?
Well, I think everyone has been given a life plan at birth. I think everyone is born to be something and everything happens for a reason.
I don’t know my plan yet, but I feel that one of my purposes in life is to inspire others to live out their dreams. Its hard you know, coming from a regional town in WA, moving at a young age to live out my dreams and be away from my family for long periods of time. But I think it's worth it and everyone should do what it takes to fulfil their dreams too.
Finish the sentence:
Im happiest when…. I'm drinking coffee and /or it's a beautiful sunny day!
I started modelling because….It was a good lead to the entertainment industry. Originally I wanted to be a pop singer, but plans have changed :) When I was scouted I was very happy to try something new. Now I model to help women feel better about their natural bodies.
I love my Modibodis because ….. They're ultra comfortable and classy, also great protection.
My greatest inspiration is….. My family. They have accomplished so much, my mum, dad, sister, brother and grandma. They all believe in me, I'm very lucky to have them.
