1. How did you get into modeling?

I First got into Modelling when I was 17 years old.

A modelling agency called Blackberry Models in London approached me and said I had potential; that’s where it all started.

I left the agency when I was 18 due to them not getting me any work, shortly after making the decision to leave the agency I decided to take two years to work on myself and leave the modelling industry and social media side of things all together.

In June 2018 I rejoined Social media and began building my account up again and started working as a promoter for several companies.

From this, I then had brands ask me to model for them, this soon escalated as the months passed.

One of the First Brands I done a photoshoot For was “The Wolfe London”

A year later I’m now the face model for the brand, I’m all over their social media and online store website.

By October 2018 I decided to go modelling full time and I’m now featured on numerous brands online stores modelling for them.

2. What are you doing if you are not modelling?

When I’m not In front of the camera, I’m often travelling up and down the country meeting and becoming friends with various other social media Influencers and models.

As well as this I’m often partying with many reality Tv Stars from shows like, love island, Only way is Essex, The Circle, Ex on the beach, Survival of the fittest and Absolutely Ascot cast members.

Which is all thanks to Helen who manages myself and many others who are with TMA.

3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?

The most spontaneous and difficult thing I’ve ever done would have been Giving up my full-time employed salary job as a Gymnastics coach where I was head of the men’s gymnastics club in a small village called Easton.

It’s something I’d like to get back into in the future because I have a passion for the sport and I love coaching!

I had to make a tough decision between coaching and modelling in my early 20’s but decided I wanted to pursue my modelling and acting career further to see where it takes me in the future.

A lot of people thought I was insane and often still get asked how I managed to do it at only 20 years of age but I knew it was the right decision for me.

For me it was the best decision I’ve made and I still say it to this day.

I get the pleasure of working when I want and with who I want. I’m always galavanting all over the country for shoots, mainly in and out of London and recently around Manchester and Bristol area.

I’m finally doing what I love and getting to meet so many amazing people in the process! To be able to say I’m financially comfortable is a bonus!

4. What do you love on Social Media? – What do you hate on Social Media?

For me social media is mainly a positive experience!

I love that it’s my Full-time Job that’s the main thing because it’s something I think many people dream of when they’re young and for me to have actually achieved it is a blessing!

I love that it’s helps me to be a more positive and confident person and with this improve my mental health which I’ve been battling since I was around 14 years old when I first got diagnosed with depression and anxiety.

Social media allows me to express myself on a large scale and in doing this allows me to also inspire many other young and old people who I know follow and support me on Instagram simply by me being ME!

Don’t get me wrong it does have its down sides! I personally struggled with trusting people and letting people in due to being let down by many people in the past and social media doesn’t help with my trust issues in the slightest!

There’s a lot of “Fake” people often online and this makes it hard to know who’s truly your friend and who isn’t going to just stab me in the back or use me. Therefore to help deal with this I keep my circle relatively small.

Bullying unfortunately is very common on social media and it’s such a shame I feel that people still can’t be nice to each other and learn to get along but unfortunately even without social media we live in a world where bullying would still be around which is very sad to think.

5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!

If I was to describe my style I’d like to say I’m bold with my outfits and try to be some what unique!

Anyone who follows me on social media knows I am a lover for a couple designer brands and you’ll often find me posting myself in a Diesel  or the Hugo Boss Store! I’d say they’re my favourite designer brands!

I love my Million and Lacoste aftershave!

The majority of my clothing you’ll see me in will be my favourite brands that I model and promote for such as the following; The Wolfe London,

Junq Couture,

304 clothing,

Certified London and

Beauxnarrow

I have been five. The opportunity to work with many more brands but those above would have to be my favourites!

6. Describe yourself in 3 words:

Ambitious, Loyal & Loving

7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?

I was born in Kings Lynn Hospital in Norfolk although I’ve never lived there.

I was living in a small village called Sporle for my younger years of my childhood until the age of 10 years old when my family moved to Another village called Fransham where I lived until 16 and 1/2 years old.

I then moved out and lived in Norwich for a couple years, then in Dereham for a couple years.

The last year I’ve been travelling all over and staying in hotels in London, Manchester, Bristol, Brighton and many more cities! It’s definitely a fun life but also very tiring!

Norfolk isn’t really an exciting place and there’s little to do, therefore I’ve not much to say about my childhood hence I feel the last year of travelling England has been the best!

8. Name one celebrity youd like to get naughty with!

I’m not really one to have a fantasy about celebrities now I’ve grown up.

When I was younger it would have been Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande or Megan Fox.

However since becoming friends with reality Tv stars and working with movie/soap stars and previously dating verified public figures I don’t really think about “getting naughty” with celebrity as to me there just ordinary people like you and I and don’t see them as any more of a crush than I would a “regular” person.

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I’m relatively flexible haha!

I’m an ex artistic Gymnast and so I’m used to putting my body in what may seem unusual positions and you’ll often see me doing flips in night clubs when I’m pissed and having a laugh with my friends.

10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?

To be honest I wouldn’t know as I don’t really search the web only what comes up on my Instagram feed.
