My favourite thing about my hometown would definitely be how friendly and easy going the people are. It’s always so relaxing when I come back to visit.
- How long have you been modelling for, and how were you scouted?
I have been modelling close to 4 years now. I was scouted by one of the Que Bookers at music festival actually. I remember her giving me her card and thinking it was a joke. I reached out to Que agency and the rest is history.

I always like to start my day by waking up early, having a coffee and taking my dog for a walk.

My tip would be to relax and try and feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. Also understanding that while you have certain duties of the job, it’s all a bit of fun.
