Singing, song-writing and writing in general on my blog (sydneybaileysdiary.blogspot.com) – one of my life goals is to write a bestseller.
Favorite piece of clothing:
A pair of shorts that I cut myself. Originally they were jeans from Chinatown, I over-wear them and I don’t feel bad about doing that.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Braces – I had them in for 4 years. Everyone else thought they were so nerdy, but to me they were like decor for my teeth and now my mouth looks boring.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
A shoot with Damon Hall Booth, in New York. I finally received the images I’ve been waiting for my entire life. Also, shooting on top of Table Mountain in my home city of Cape Town was pretty unforgettable.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
My country, South Africa, is home to the friendliest people and is the most naturally beautiful country in the world, specifically Cape Town.
Favorite artist (any kind):
