How discovered:
My friend who was modelling gave me the name of her agent to whom I reached out to on Facebook.

What was your first modeling job?
My first job was with one of my favourite clients in Canada called Maison Simons. I was definitely nervous but ended up having such a good time. I love that they still bring me home to shoot with them from time to time.

Favorite things:
My dog, my grandma, family, music, my friends.

What are you listening to at the moment?
Definitely loving Jorja Smith, Snoh Aalegra, Khruangbin, Prince, Men I Trust, SZA and Sade at the moment.

Favorite movie, tv show:
I love and adore Chocolat. I’m also obsessed with Stranger Things and will always have a soft spot for The Office.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
My favorite show every season is Louis Vuitton.
Derek Lam 10 Crosby’s 2am Kiss eau de parfum would be my favourite fragrance.
Skin-wise I love Biologique, Tata Harper and my newest obsession is Vintners Daughter, the active botanical serum is the only thing that keeps my skin hydrated and glowy all day.

What were you doing before modeling?
I was in school in Canada living with my parents.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I would probably still be in school in Canada, but I am so happy that’s not the case haha. I always loved environmental studies, I would probably be pursuing that or owning my own business.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I love cleaning, my apartment always has to be really neat and I get really satisfied when I clean.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
Without a doubt the Tom Ford Beauty campaign. I also loved working with Pat McGrath for her Pat McGrath Labs campaign & British Vogue, working with such an inspirational woman that I admired for years was definitely one of my favourite experiences.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I’m so proud to be Canadian. I love Montréal for its diversity and character; it’s a very charming city and I love that it’s French-speaking. The food is also amazing and the people very welcoming.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would love to work for Dior, and shoot for French Vogue. There are so many brands I love and people I would like to work with like Steven Meisel, i-D, Alexander Wang, Helmut Lang to name a few.

Place you would love to visit:
I travelled to Tokyo 4 years ago and I am dying to go back to see more of Japan. It’s such an amazing city with an intriguing & beautiful culture.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I am obsessed with Lauren Signer who is the face of Zerowaste and lives a plastic-free life. I love learning from her on reducing my waste and being more conscious about the environment and how a person can make a difference with small actions every day.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Believe in yourself first, cause no one else will if you don’t.
