DARCY, 26, RETAIL ASSISTANT
YOU COULD BE A MODEL FOR A DAY!!
If you are photogenic, over 18, and 168cm or over for girls, and 180cm or over for guys, and would like to be a model for a day; we’d love to hear from you! All ages and builds welcome — text a pic and details to 0427 331 395 or email firstname.lastname@example.org FROM: I was born and raised in Melbourne. What brought me here?
Miserable weather, miserable people … WORK: I’m a carpenter by trade. I got the opportunity to work for the Government in Cairns, building houses for indigenous communities. My best mate and I were doing roofing on prefab houses that got sent to the Top End, so I got to see parts of Australia that not many people get to see. The builder went under so we all got stuck in Cairns. My mate got a job at Myer in Cairns and put my name forward. We worked back to back, then he went back home. I moved back to Melbourne. My trainer said to give up hard physical work and we’ll get you to fight professionally, so I fought mixed martial arts. I gave up building to work retail and
worked at Myer in Melbourne city, and fought professionally. I worked 10 years at a shelter with dangerous dogs that have been seized by the council, I moved up here because I want to join the police force, because I’ve got work and two dogs,
and you can train here. It’s a five-year plan. PLAY: I train at a few different gyms, and work on my house, it’s a ’70s Defence house,
I’m trying to do the kitchen. INTERESTS: I always hated team sports. As a kid I was into mountain bike riding. One day I rode past a boxing gym, poked my head in, then I did boxing for six years. I was working in Richmond and found a mixed martial arts gym next to where I was working
so did that for two or three years. I had a few high-end fights. I want to get back into it, I miss the physical aspect and the camaraderie of the guys at the gym. When you shed blood, sweat and tears, it becomes this different bond you have with people.
WHAT MADE YOU HAVE A GO AT MODEL FOR A DAY? Being involved with the models at Myer where I work, I thought “Why not?” Don’t say no to anything, give everything a go.
The worst that’s going to happen is that it will go terribly!
