How did you get into your career?
The modelling industry always held a special place in my heart, it was always something that looked fun and interesting! Through a lot of TFP work (the hustle was real) and by staying committed and active on social media, I got a bunch of opportunities to meet new, like-minded people within the industry! Ultimately this led to me getting scouted by my mother agency, Non-Airbrushed Me Management! Through N A M I got a contract with BELLA Management which to this day still baffles me, and I am so grateful and lucky that I am able to be represented by BELLA.
What's your favourite part of your job?
My favourite part of the job would have to be the people I get to meet, ranging from the photographers, to the HMUA’s, to the videographers and other models! Everyone is always so interesting and just genuine, beautiful people.
What are your hobbies outside of modelling?
When I’m not out and about doing modelling gigs, I’m either working at my retail job at Universal Store or you’ll find me behind the laptop studying as I’m currently completing my Bachelor of Nutrition study at the University of the Sunshine Coast, living out that fun uni student lifestyle, haha! Beside from that, I love to go on little camping trips or go for a surf when I can, I'm a bit of a beach bum!
What/who do you follow for inspiration on socials?
@bybrookelindsay and @ashparaskevas are who I follow for inspiration on socials! They’re both confident, beautiful and strong women that are huge believers of self-acceptance, positivity and just keeping it real!
What’s your favourite piece from our new Varsity Collection?
I am obsessed with the black mid-thigh bike shorts from the upcoming KNEO range... get ready to be obsessed! Plus, how cute are the Varsity peach cheetah grippies.
What's your favourite form of movement and why?
I would defiantly say yoga! I love how it grounds me and centres my focus purely on how my body is moving through the motions.
Who is your career mentor?
My career mentor would have to be @maryhecker who has always been an inspiration to me since I started modelling.
What did you love most about the photoshoot day?
Once again, I would have to say the people! The whole MoveActive team were so welcoming and passionate about what they are doing. It was so easy to be myself and feel my best with such a nice group of people to be surrounded by!
