We Asked:

What’s the most difficult thing you have ever done?
“Delivering a baby goat for my granddad’s pet goat. It was a difficult experience, gross as well, but I did it and it was fun!”

What is the most interesting thing about your family?
“I have an older sister and a younger brother. It’s been me, them and my mum. I share a strong bond with them. The most interesting thing about us is how we always sit outside on a mat at night to tell stories and sometimes our daily gossip. It’s really a fun thing to do and keeps us closer. I took up a job after my high school as a teacher at a summer class, I earn some money from there to keep me going. Life is fun with my family, no matter what we are going through, it’s a lot of love.”

What have you learned since you started modelling?
“I have learned to pose and catwalk. It’s been extremely tedious, I always thought models were naturally glamorous, never knew they have to learn to do it. I always saw them on TV and loved them, never knew I could be one and never knew it was this much work as well.”
