Tell us how you got into modelling?
Apart from always having an interest in fashion and beauty, I was only 15 years old when I was out shopping and an agent from London came up to me and asked me to do an audition for a TV show. She told me that she liked my look and we exchanged information.
Unfortunately, the show wanted girls who were at least 16 and I was not the age they wanted for the show. But I received a letter from her saying that modelling is something I should look into, and that’s how this all began for me. I started doing a lot of research online about the modelling and fashion industry in general before I began building my portfolio.
What have your career highlights been thus far?
I have a lot of career highlights which I have achieved so far. Being a lead in a commercial for a huge shopping Centre in Corona, California The Shops at Dos Lagos was so much fun. Also doing a Christmas commercial for TBS was so cool and I’m great full for all my opportunities.
