SU­PER­MODEL

So how did you get your start as a model?

I en­tered the GF Model Search in 2004 and was lucky enough to be one of the six fi­nal­ists. I was only 13 at the time, so it took a few years be­fore my ca­reer re­ally started.

What mes­sage do you have for girls with a dream like yours?

My ad­vice would be, noth­ing worth hav­ing in life comes easy – it’s all about hard work and ded­i­ca­tion. But it is all worth it. Never stop striv­ing for some­thing you’re pas­sion­ate about.

Tell us about a chal­lenge you’ve faced in your ca­reer?

One of the main chal­lenges when I first got into the in­dus­try was I was in­cred­i­bly shy, which isn’t ideal for a model. It took quite a few years for me to over­come it, but luck­ily I had a very sup­port­ive agency and fam­ily that helped me along the way.

How do you think the next generation of girls can change the world?

By be­ing very con­scious of en­vi­ron­men­tal and hu­man rights is­sues, and giv­ing back when­ever it’s pos­si­ble.

This Vogue cover girl is noth­ing less than ~iconic~.
