New or recycled?
Recycled, because it gives me the creative freedom to play around with the piece, without worrying too much about destroying it.
What do you have for lunch on a Sunday?
I love Ethiopian food, but nothing beats a Guzman chicken wrap meal on a Sunday afternoon. You can never feel bloated with rice and beans (Laughs, E.D.)!
Running in the park or training in the gym?
Park runs are beautiful in the morning, but training in the gym is a lot easier since I like to use weight machines a lot.
What’s the snack you loved as a kid?
Oreos were my go-to snacks during my primary/high school years.
Vintage or straight from the catwalk?

Vintage pieces are usually cheaper and easier to find. However, catwalk pieces already come with an aesthetic or, at most times, in the finest materials. The quality of vintage pieces may not be on point, but it gives you the creative freedom to showcase a wide range of different designs.

How did you first get into modeling?
My journey of becoming a model began at a young age because of my love for hip hop. Back then, I was listening to artists such as Kanye West, Playboi Carti and ASAP Mob, who were deeply involved with the fashion world. Later on, that inspired me to take my own fashion seriously. My modeling journey started back in Melbourne during quarantine, when I took my creativity to Tik Tok and amassed millions of views within a short period of time. The exposure helped shape my career, gaining recognition from brands and, ultimately, being represented by Priscilla’s Model Management.
London or New York City?

I’d rather live in London if it were to be for modeling, and that’s because the focus of the modeling industry circulates mainly in Europe. However, the creative scene and lifestyle in New York City would probably suit me a lot more, with Hollywood being the center of all the roles I’d like to achieve.
If you weren’t a model, what would you be?
An accountant or a businessman for a corporate company has been the prime backup idea since primary school. Anyhow, overtime I’ve been fascinated by architecture and the artistic views of artists surrounding architects like Zaha Hadid, who’s made me question myself on whether I could provide the world with the wonders of the shapes and objects used to bring meaning to this meaningless world.
Reading or watching Netflix?
Netflix is probably my go-to option when I’m with friends or family members. However, reading the voice of an author gives a better focus of the story and helps your mind visualise the scenes of that particular story.
Skateboard or electric scooter?
Skateboarding is a lot harder, because you have no control on the speed of the board, whereas E-scooters come with a maximum speed and don’t give you as much creative space for tricks. And I personally love to learn new tricks.

How do you dress for a date? What about castings?
I think clothes tell stories and believe it’s always important to try and not put the focus of the date on your outfit. Wearing classy clothes in dark colours definitely helps, and your date will be focused on what you’re saying rather than what you’re wearing! Is there a thing you had to wear for a job that you wished you could bring home? I’ve come across lots of great stylists since entering this field and, at times, they’d have some pieces from my favourite shows, designers and brands like Louis Vuitton. The feeling of getting a shot in your favourite pieces makes you want to buy them right away!
Do you have any advice for those who want to start a career in the fashion industry?
To those who are looking to break into fashion but are hesitant, I suggest doing it for fun until it becomes serious. Far too often people are scared to give something a shot, because they’re too focused on the end result. It’s important to try things for fun till you find the perfect one. If you’re waiting for the perfect idea to execute, you might never get there. You just have to give it all until it becomes a journey, a road worthy of being given your life focus.
What’s your favourite perfume?

Perfume brands are a close match up of the labels I’d usually rock in real life, so scents from brands like Calvin Klein and Raf Simons are the perfumes I use on rotation.
What’s your relationship with social networks? How do you deal with online criticism?

I don’t really take much note of online criticism, it’s usually easier to ignore than respond. This is purely due to the fact that no one can know me better than I know myself. I believe that I’m a good, mindful and respectful person, so at the end of the day I think that’s all that truly matters.
What’s your favourite song?
‘The Story of O.J.’ by Jay-Z. The notes, lyrics and, of course, the message speak a whole different storyline that aligns with my own story.
