How discovered:
I was scouted in my local shopping centre, Croydon. This was two years ago.

What was your first modeling job?
Walking as an exclusive for Burberry, it was really nerve wrecking but once the adrenaline kicked in I loved it. It was like a dream!

Favorite things:
When I’m not doing castings and shoots I love to catch up with friends and spend time with family. One thing I can’t live without is my Vaseline, it has to be in my pocket everywhere I go!

What are you listening to at the moment?
I’ve really been enjoying the Migos album, they’re my fave at the moment.

Favorite movie, tv show:
My favourite movie of all time is White Chicks, but when it comes to TV I don’t really watch much of it unless it’s catching up on Hollyoaks.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Balmain is a brand that I just can’t get enough of, every season I love it more and more. I have two signature perfumes – Thierry Mugler’s Angel & Paco Rabanne’s Olympia.

What were you doing before modeling?
I was doing an apprenticeship in an Estate Agency. It was so different to my life now, as since being model no day is the same as the next and you never know what’s around the corner.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I would still be an estate agent if I wasn’t modelling and in the future, I’d love to start my own lingerie line.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I don’t know if it’s uncool or a guilty pleasure but I have to make sure I get my weekly catch up with Hollyoaks.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I have so many! A few would have to be: walking the runway in London and Milan for fashion week, but also seeing myself in Vogue and Elle. They were some really surreal moments for me.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I love that there is always something to do in London. Even if I’m on the complete opposite end of London to where I’m from I still feel completely at home. I love that it’s so cosmopolitan and everyone embraces everyone’s uniqueness.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would really love to work with Fendi, I love how they have helped to bring bold branding back again.

Place you would love to visit:
I would love to visit the Maldives and just relax with no phone for a week.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I’m currently obsessed with makeup and different ways it can be applied for different looks. I think it’s a real art and I have the utmost respect for makeup artists.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Always follow your gut instinct and only do what is right for you.
