How did you get scouted?
Originally in my PJ’s in Cardiff Tesco’s by a hairdresser from Sassoon. But I walked into FM earlier this year to try and pursue modelling as a full time career.
Have you ever had any memorable model mishaps?
Always, I’m so uncoordinated and clumsy something normally happens on a daily basis. One in particular, I thought a photographer told me to bite my lip, so I sat there trying to look sexy for a few minutes before he looked up and said no, wet your lip. That was embarrassing, especially when he sent me the photo afterwards!
Who is your ultimate designer?
It’s so hard to choose one… but it would have to be Maison Martin Margiela.
If you weren’t a model what would you be?
I currently have a few projects on the go as well as modelling. I’m very passionate about earth science and environmental studies and continuously develop my knowledge within that field. I’m also designing an eco-fashion collection.
Out of all the locations you have visited modelling which is your favourite and why?
London, I haven’t been anywhere else as of yet, but I find London really exciting right now.
If you had to soundtrack your life with one song what would it be?
Just one?! Alt J- ‘Hunger of the pine’.
