Place of Origin:
South West London

Ethnic Origin:
I’m Ghanaian, and my dad is 1/4 Dutch

Birthsign:
Aquarius

How discovered:
I got scouted by a couple of agencies before my A-Level exams. I decided to wait until I’d finished them, then went in to an open call for Models 1 and they signed me

Favorite things:
I like going to the gym and chilling with my mates. The one thing I cannot live without is peanut butter (smooth of course – I’m not a barbarian).

What are you listening to at the moment?
Benjmin Clementine, Alabama Shakes, Drake, Raleigh Ritchie, Stormzy – I’ve got music for every eventuality

Favorite movie, tv show:
Lion King is the best film ever (that is a fact) and Game of Thrones

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I don’t religiously follow designers season by season but I’ve liked Ports 1961 from seeing mates on Instagram. As for grooming, I wear Polo Ralph Lauren Red and most importantly, Cocoa Butter. It’s crucial – if you know you know!

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I wasn’t a model I think I’d be at university in Exeter a lot more and I’d probably be trying to put on some weight in the gym like I used to. I have absolutely no idea what I’ll do later on in life. I’m doing an economics degree so hopefully it will be something relative to economics!

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Piano Tiles 2. It’s a game on the app store and if you don’t know about it then I’d strongly suggest you download it immediately. It’ll change your life.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
Going to New York for the first time was insane, but my best job so far was definitely shooting the Burberry fragrance campaign.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
When I’m travelling I miss having a routine. I also miss how the great British weather always keeps you guessing!

Which brand would you really love to model for?
Dolce and Gabbana

Place you would love to visit:
Either Bali or Alaska. I’d like to experience a completely different climate and vibe.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Rugby Union. Looks like Exeter University has rubbed off on me!
