There’s no stop­ping Cana­dian model Kate Bock. Here, the 2013 Sports Il­lus­trated Swim­suit Rookie of the Year tells us what it’s like liv­ing the dream.

Where do you want to es­cape to this win­ter? “I’m cross­ing my fin­gers and hop­ing I end up in Tahiti! I’ve never been and would love to stay in one of those glass-bot­tom rooms where you can see the fish un­der your feet.” What’s your beach-bag beauty must-have? “So much sun­screen. No one looks cute with a burn!” What song is on your I-can-con­quer-the-world playlist?

“Katy Perry’s ‘Roar.’” Who in­spires you? “Heidi Klum. She started out like any girl and has be­come a su­per­star and busi­ness­woman while hav­ing a fam­ily.” What’s the big­gest chal­lenge you’ve faced? “This ca­reer wasn’t easy at the be­gin­ning. I was alone and far away from home and had to find my way around for­eign cities. It was hard, but I al­ways wanted to be where I am now, and I found a way to get here.” What’s one of your big­gest dreams? “I think I hon­estly dreamed of the life I’m now liv­ing. I’m go­ing to con­tinue to work hard, and I can’t wait to see what the fu­ture holds.” What’s your best ad­vice for stay­ing mo­ti­vated? “Ev­ery­one is go­ing to hit road bumps and have hard days. Stay in­spired by keep­ing in mind what you want most. Don’t lose faith be­cause of what’s hap­pen­ing right now.”
