I was discovered while I was with my family in a mall by the woman who went on to become my mother agent. However, it took a while before I first signed as I had a whole family to convince that signing with a modeling agency wouldn’t be the most dangerous thing in the world!
Best modeling experience so far?
My best modeling experience was during a two-month trip to Japan when I was 16. I like to call it my « first times » trip since not only did I have my first bookings as a model, but I also experienced my first parties, my first love, it was the first time I spent such a long period away from my family, the first time I started cooking, and all in all my first real introduction into the adult world. The trip taught me invaluable lessons in how to develop and hold onto long-lasting personal and professional relationships. The insight I gained in Japan has since served me in contract negotiations, castings, job interviews, and personal relationships. Though I feel obliged to mention the importance of my parents in my personal development, I like to think that my time in Tokyo was transformative and forged me into who I am today.
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I am currently obsessed with three things: reading Stephen King (my 2021 resolution is to read all of his books + novellas – so far I’ve read 10 of his books this year), singing (I used to sing at the National Choir of the Paris Opéra), and running (I ran 10km in 38min just last week – I promise it’s true!).
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
The best advice I have ever been given was from my father: “never give up”, while this can sound really cliché, this is the advice that has pushed me to become everything that I’ve ever wanted to be: to graduate from one of the best universities in the UK with a degree in Politics, International Relations, and German, to have a modeling career, and to be a part of competitive athletic events and prestigious runway shows.
