1. How did you get into modeling?

What first got me into modelling was initially seeing the publicity the models got and the attention they were attracting from bigger clothing companies. More than anything I envied what the models were getting and wanted try and match the lifestyle they were living due to me liking the look of it.

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

If im not modelling i try to spend as much time as I can organising another shoot or focusing on my personal life to ensure all round happiness.

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

The most difficult thing I’ve ever done to do with modelling is having my mum as the photographer, and although this sounds really stupid, the connection me and my mum have, it was near impossible to complete the shoot.

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

What I love on social media is the positivity people can bring into one another’s lives just by a simple photo they post or share, but then on the downside the thing I hate about social media is the cyber bullies, the ones that troll and do nothing but try and ruin other peoples lives, I’ve seen a lot of talented models give up their career just because of the negative attention they were getting

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

I don’t really have a personal style so to speak, im more than happy to give every dress sense a try, you never know what you suit if you haven’t seen yourself wearing the clothes. Personally im a fan of Tommy Hilfieger but I still enjoy wearing and flaunting smaller up and coming companies. My favourite aftershave has to be cliché unfortunately, it is Joop Homme.

6. Describe yourself in 3 words:

The 3 words I would use to describe myself are; optimistic, confident and enthusiastic.

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

The best thing about my town is the fact that there isn’t anything to do. It just adds to my determination to better my life and make something of myself in order to live in a better part of the country/world.

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

One celebrity I’d definitely get naughty with is Rita Ora, I mean come on, who wouldn’t want a bit of Rita?

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I wouldn’t say I have a special talent as such, but I’m sure that I just haven’t found it yet.

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

I’d say the most interesting thing online for me at the minute is the countdown to the SS/18 releases from clothing companies. Hopefully I can make something of myself in the modelling industry this year.
