IONA Pre­sen­ta­tion Col­lege stu­dent Sar­sha Chisholm was “dobbed in” for mod­el­ling by a friend.

The 16-year-old in­dige­nous teenager signed with Vivien’s Model Man­age­ment in Novem­ber last year soon af­ter a friend joined and told the agency about her green-eyed pal.

Within two weeks, Sar­sha was booked by Tar­get for a job in Mel­bourne.

A shoot for MAC Cos­met­ics in Syd­ney fol­lowed, as well as her Perth cat­walk de­but at Perth

Fash­ion Fes­ti­vals Swim and Re­sort Se­ries, where she met her idol Sa­man­tha Har­ris.

“It was quite nerve-wrack­ing but it was good fun,” Sar­sha said.

“It was great meet­ing her (Sa­man­tha) but I thought ‘What’s next to come if I’m meet­ing her at my first job?’”

The daugh­ter of in­au­gu­ral Fre­man­tle Dock­ers player Scott Chisholm is among 10 Vivien’s

mod­els who will wear Em­pire Rose for a fash­ion pa­rade at the Nakuru Hope In­spi­ra­tional Women’s Lunch on Sun­day, March 26.

Money raised will pro­vide food, ed­u­ca­tion and health­care to peo­ple in Kenya’s Kaptem­bwe slums.

Sar­sha, who starts work place­ment at a pri­mary school this week, said her mum’s friend was Kenyan and had of­ten told her about the poverty there.
