What’s the top thing on your bucket list?
Probably to go to India or Vietnam, I’m slightly obsessed with the idea of riding a 50cc scooter through mountain ranges and eating Pho.
Sunset or sunrise?
Sunset, I’m never up early enough for a sunrise.

What’s the biggest challenge you’ve faced in the modeling industry thus far?
I haven’t really faced any issues or problems, I guess you get rejected whatever, take it on the chin!
Do you find there’s enough diversity in modeling and the fashion world? And what would you change about it, if anything?
Compared to even five years ago, the industry seems to be more diverse, which is lovely. I guess the only thing I’d change, is the pay gap between genders.

Are you conscious of the environment when you shop?
I only buy second-hand or vintage, I don’t think I’ve bought anything brand-new in years!
When you’re cleaning out your closet, what do you do with your clothes that no longer fit?
I either give them away to my friends or sell them.
Do you donate or sell these items?
I’d sell them if I know they’re going to a good home. However, I live above a charity shop, so it’s kinda easier for me to take it there.

Sailboat or speedboat?
Sailboat, as it’s more natural and goes with the wind!
What’s your favourite song?
It’s a hard one. Probably, ‘Ain’t No Sunshine/Lonely Avenue’ by Isaac Hayes, that just came out on the WattStax Live 1972 album or ‘Love, in Itself’ by Depeche Mode, because everyone loves it.
