THE X FACTOR WINNER IS TURNING THE TABLES AND ON THE HUNT FOR NEW TALENT

-

After five years of nonstop work and travel following his X-Factor win, Isaiah Firebrace has made the most of a chance to reflect, recharge and reconnect. “It’s been amazing to spend time with my mum and family in southern Victoria and just reflect on how big my life has been in the past few years,’’ the 21-year-old tells WHO. “It’s all fuelled my healing [and] my journey, and has been inspiratio­nal for my music which I look forward to working on more of soon.’’

In the meantime, he’s turning the tables by taking on the role as an ambassador for the Bella Unsigned Model Search, helping to lead the national hunt for diverse talent.

What got you involved in the Bella Unsigned Model Search gig?

I love rocking a cool outfit and expressing myself through what I wear. I’m about branching out and different avenues. I love the creativity of the fashion industry. How important would an opportunit­y like this have been to you when you were growing up?

So important. People need to feel like they’re seen and valued as well. Everyone deserves the opportunit­y to showcase who they are. The days of not being able to do something because of your skin colour or body shape are over.

What are you looking for?

I’m looking for good stories and someone who is really authentic to themselves.
