How did you start out in modelling?
I was scouted in NYC whilst on holiday with my Mum by a mother agent, and then was placed at an agency here in the UK.
If you could invite any 3 people to a dinner party who would it be?
I would invite Tyra Banks, Wendy Williams and Shonda Rhimes. Tyra and Shonda are great, successful business women, who I look up to in the respective fields and I think they would have a lot of wisdom to impart upon me and Wendy Williams because I think she’s just scandalous, but quite tongue in cheek and she’d be the one to make the dinner party more fun.
Which track do you currently have set on repeat?
Childish Gambino – California.
Favourite city you have travelled to for work?
What are your secrets to staying fit and healthy?
Everything in moderation and working out first thing in the morning is the best way to give you energy for the day.
Describe your style in 3 words?
Simplistic, laid back and (occasionally) sexy!
Name a guilty pleasure you can’t live without?
What’s your ‘go to’ workout routine?
Billy Blanks Tae Bo on YouTube.
What is one of the most unusual shoots that you’ve done?
I was in a warehouse, wearing numerous bright yellow, red and blue jumpsuits and “experimental” make up climbing on metals and forced to do “abstract” poses.
What’s the most useful advice you’ve received?
Not necessarily first hand advice but a quote by Maya Angelou which is simple but so accurate: “nothing will work, unless you do!”
