Describe yourself in 3 words?
Quirky, adventurous and sporty
How did you get into modelling?
Did some modelling when I was really young but never took it seriously. Then a few years ago my sister kept telling me that I should do it so I tried it out but just did it on the side when I could. And now recently I've just been scouted and haven’t looked back ever since. I feel that the jobs that I’m getting now really suit my look and it feels comfortable doing it.
What do you do when you’re not working?
I've always played sports since I was young. So I still play now but more selective with what sports I play. I play football a few times a week when I’m not working as well as keeping fit and going to the gym.
I also like keeping up with the latest fashion styles and check out fashion blogs.
This may sound cliche but whenever I have some free time to myself I’m always looking to improve myself. And I do this by meditating, reading positive books and listening to podcasts.
My mum's homemade butter chicken. It’s absolutely to die for. I request my mum to make it at least once a week minimum lol.
Where do you draw style inspiration from?
I would say from everyday experiences. Walking around in London you see so many different unique styles. I'm on social media a lot so I'm always checking out fashion blog posts and seeing the latest trends but also adding my own touch to my style. And being a model you get to work with cool designers and brands which also inspire me.
Loving the hair! How long has it taken to grow?
Thanks! It has taken me about 3 years to grow but I've had it cut a little in between just to keep it looking and feeling healthy.
Favourite piece from Serge?
This was a hard one because I love jewellery and pretty much love all the products from Serge. But I would say that my favourite pieces are the Silver Napoleon ring and the Silver Reprobus necklace. I would definitely wear these pieces like every day.
Dream brand to work with?
Another hard question but I have got to say Adidas. And the reason would be because I've always worn Adidas clothes since I was a young kid and still do. I wear Adidas to the gym, normal day to day and when playing football. So pretty much all the time lol.
Have you got any hidden talents?
I can move my ears without touching them. This is like my party trick and at university, it always use to get me a free drink or two :p
You get out of life what you put into it.
