I have this word tattooed on my ring finger, I got it tattooed age 16 so I guess that means ‘love’ always meant a lot in my life. I didn’t know what it was and how much it really did until I met the love of my life.
It is also the answer to everything else. The world would be a better place if we were to live with love rather than hate. So much would be different. One of my favourite quotes is ‘ when the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace’ by Jimi Hendrix.
I’ve never ever been ruled by money, to me being happy is worth way more to me. As long as I have enough to live the life I love I’m happy. I’ve been lucky enough to live my dream job and be able to completely look after myself and move to London at a young age. Im a normal girl from a normal family and definitely don’t take it for granted. I started off modelling for the fun of it so how lucky am I that it’s also become my job.

Without trust what do you have? Whether it’s a working relationship or a personal one. I’ve met my fair share of untrustworthy people, who hasn’t?
I am forever pushing myself to be better and work harder. In the modelling industry it’s difficult because you can work as hard as you want and you still can’t force people to choose you for something or to book you on a job. Success is rated differently by everyone and I’ve come to realise being successful is being happy, and whatever you make of it. I used to get so worked up over being successful but i realised that 13 year old me would be in absolute awe of how well I have done so that makes me happy.
Heights and cold cheese put the fear in me. That and losing someone I love of course! Anything else I’m pretty fearless. I need to jump out of a plane to get rid of the heights thing and definitely will one day!

I moved away from home early, I travel a lot and my job is very isolating so the few good friends I have I hold dearly to me. I don’t get to see them often but am also lucky enough to have friends all over the world. If you’re my mate and reading this – I love ya.
I’m a perfectionist, which holds me back more than helps me. I’m loyal and I put other people in front of myself. I am very creative and can’t go a day without feeling like I’ve done something or created something even if just in my thoughts. I love to travel, but not for too long as I love home comforts too, although the beach is where I’m meant to be, or anywhere with great food and music. I know that life is for living and being happy and content comes way way before work. I’m lucky my work is so fun that I’d do it for free. I’ll always just be a normal northern English girl.

The 21st century scares me a lot! Social media has taken over the world. I was thinking the other day how anxious it makes me that what I put on Instagram actually affects my life and job… so how much pressure must a young teenage girl feel?! The world is a click away but that world is not real. I think as long as people know this and appreciate the fakeness for what it is.. it can be a fun place used for gain. Anything is possible in this internet era, things I couldn’t of even dreamt when I left school which wasn’t even that long ago?! Who knows where we will be in 10 years.
Is in my veins. The people I love I am fiercely loyal to.

Being lucky enough to travel the world has shown me that not everyone is free. There is a lot that needs to change in the world. I am very passionate about the freedom of women in society these days and how far we have come and how far we still have to go. When travelling to the Middle East I saw how not free women were, it’s scary. I then spoke to a charity here called Refuge who work with women and informed me that in the UK 1 in 4 women are being controlled in their relationship. Then there the pay gap. Derogatory slang that forces us to feel uncomfortable or dress a certain way. The list goes on for ways women deserve freedom. I hope we get there in the end!
