Starting with the basics, how did you first get into modeling?
I was just a normal girl on Instagram, posting photos of my life. A few labels got in contact with me asking that I promote them, then asking me to model for them. I thought I’d give it a go. I was terrible, but I got better and better, as well as more experienced with the work I’ve been getting. I decided I wanted to make a career out of this.
I freelanced for a year, getting all my jobs from Instagram. The agency I’m now signed with found me at a music festival and after signing with them, my work load has got busier, with more clients and just keeps getting bigger and better!
Amazing! Instagram ‘launching’ careers seems to be a trend at the moment.
What is the biggest gig you’ve booked so far?
I’ve recently worked on a music video for All Day, that was great!
Can’t wait to check it out!
What do you love about your job?
I get to meet so many people, and travel lots of different places and I love playing dress-ups all day.
How do you balance a normal teenage lifestyle with all the exciting things going on in your life?
It’s pretty easy, on my days off I spend time with my boyfriend and my PS3 hehe. Either that, or I’m on the other side of the world chasing the sun.
You are definitely the jet-setter!
What does travel mean to you?
I get bored easily, so I’m always up for new adventures. To see things I’ve never seen before and experience different cultures. I think it’s important to understand the lifestyles of other countries.
I completely agree. There is so much to see and learn in this world.
When you’re traveling, what are five things you always put in your suitcase?
My laptop, bikinis (even if it’s winter), food, air-maxs and boots!
If you could only travel to one place for the rest of your life, where would it be and why??
I don’t have a particular place, but I would travel around in a submarine in the world’s most beautiful oceans. . . I love being underwater, it’s like another world down there.
You have a huge social media following!
Can you give us a couple of tips on gramin’?
‘Show da booty ;)’ . . . nah, I honestly have no idea where my followers came from. Just be yourself I guess, that’s what I did.
What are the first things to come to mind when I say :
– I wish you were younger
– Mexican with a moustache
– ‘No Ragrets’
– My source of happiness
My cactus collection, each one of them is named after mean people . .
– The green people
– Something I really want to do!
My go to playlist is :
Ok, it really depends on my mood. . .
If I’m feeling ‘boss,’ I listen to Boss Ass Bitch by Nicki Minaj and anything from Queen B. If I’m feeling ‘thug,’ I listen to Kanye and Drake. Then I get in moods where I feel like listening to music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. And then when I feel like singing as loud as I can, I listen to Ariana and Justin Timberlake.
There’s so much more . . . I don’t know what my taste is, it changes everyday!
Favourite word? Least favourite word?
“Douce” and least favourite is “fanny”- EW I didn’t even want to type that. . .
Jeans and sneakers or dresses and heels?
Depends what mood I’m in and where I’m going. I can’t choose one or the other.
In 3 words how would you describe your style?
Always changing style. . . hehe that’s three words!
If you could have a motto for your life what would it be and why?
“Keep working until you don’t have to introduce yourself.”
