What’s your ear­li­est fash­ion mem­ory? “I was al­ways very par­tic­u­lar about what I wore, even when I was three years old.” Were you al­ways in­ter­ested in mod­el­ling? “I grew up in Kitch­ener [Ont.], and I played sports. When I got scouted, it was re­ally the be­gin­ning of it all.” What do you love about do­ing run­way? “You’re re­ally im­mersed in a fash­ion world where you get to see all the lat­est trends and travel with your friends—it’s like a trav­el­ling cir­cus in a way.” What are some of the best mo­ments from your ca­reer so far? “This is pretty high on the list. Not ev­ery­one can say they went to Dis­ney­land to do a shoot!” Do you have any favourite Dis­ney char­ac­ters? “The first movie I ever saw in a the­atre was The Lit­tle Mer­maid. I loved Poc­a­hon­tas too. Be­fore, it was all about be­ing a princess, but Poc­a­hon­tas—she was fierce.” Where do you see your­self go­ing from here? “I think you should live your life based on what makes you happy. I love what I do, so I’m just go­ing to ride it out and see what hap­pens.” LAURA deCARUFEL
