What is the best thing that has happened to you this year?
The best thing that happened to me was being accepted into a Leadership program for young girls called Shine.
What is Shine? Can you tell us a bit more about this?
Shine is a program that promotes emotional resilience, self-esteem, and healthy confidence and moral intelligence in young women. It encourages girls to live with integrity, honesty, kindness, courtesy and courage.
What made you take the leap and have a go at modelling / acting?
I’ve always liked trying on clothes and taking photos, so modelling seemed like the perfect thing. I love getting my hair and make-up done… and I love meeting other models.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Hmm… a couple of things actually… a dance teacher or a school teacher… or a paramedic!
What is your favourite thing to wear that you will never throw out?
My scrunchie collection!
Can you tell us a little bit about what you have been up to lately, in terms of photoshoots or acting?
I recently did a neon photoshoot, which had lots of bright colours in it. It was awesome!
What is your favourite thing to do in Summer?
Swim in my pool and hang out with my friends.
Do you remember the very first job you did, and how did it make you feel?
My first job was a tennis photoshoot. I was nervous because I didn’t know what to expect… and didn’t know what actions I should do and what facial expressions I should make.
Have you done any workshops, like runway or acting workshops before? How do you think it has helped you gain confidence and learn more about the industry?
I did Kidz Fashion Week. I learnt how to walk on a runway and what poses to do. It was very helpful!
Do you follow any models or actors that you admire on social media, if so who, and why are they the best?
Yep, Piper Rockelle because she is always so happy. I like the outfits she wears, and she makes funny videos on Youtube.
Do you have any special talents, play any instruments or play sports?
I can dance and do calisthenics.
If you were to get the coolest modeling or acting job tomorrow, what would it be doing, who for, and why?
I would love to model for Gucci because I love their images on Instagram. They are so creative and different. I would love doing it in Los Angeles, because I love American food and Starbucks!
What advice would you give someone who was thinking about getting involved in doing modeling or acting but may think - I’m too shy or I don’t know what to do, I don’t have any experience.
Just go do it and have fun! You only live once so take a chance! You may end up loving it, and if you don’t do it, you’ll never know what it’s like to be a model.
If you had one wish what would it be?
I’d wish for the earth to stop dying from all the pollution.
Is the environment something you think about a lot?
Caring for the environment is very important to me because I don’t want our planet to die.
