Everyone has something unique about them.
I do believe that models should be older now.
I look at Australia as a multicultural country where our differences make us special, but unfortunately not everyone back home holds that view.
The fashion industry has always spoken about the need for more diverse models and I’m happy to be part of that conversation in Australia. Myself and others are changing the perception of what it means to be Australian and I couldn’t be more proud.
I’m very excited to be back home in Australia. I love coming home to see my family and working in a familiar environment between Sydney and Melbourne!
I actually want a small wedding; I don’t want a big, poufy dress. I want to be on a beach. I think those things will definitely happen.
