Hey! Im lala and im a part time Model! I've only been modelling professionally for 3 months but have had experience prior to that with helping friends and photographers out. My main goal in life is to make enough money to start my own businesses so one day I can travel the world with my son!

1. When did you first realise you wanted to be a model?

Since I was a little girl I've always loved the idea of being a model. Since I was little I was always praying and begging to be 5ft 8' because my mum is smaller than me so I knew it most likely wouldn't happen and it didn't! I've always been addicted to America's next top model so yer, since I was little! Haha

2. At what age did you first start modelling?

I first started to model was when I was 14 but professionally it's only been 3 months ago.
At 14 I started modelling for photographers portfolios and did a few shoots in London and I also helped friends out when they were studying photography.
It was until 3 months ago, I was in a shop and a guy asked me if id like to do some modelling and it started from there!

3. What was your first big break and how did it arise?

So far I haven't had a "big break" but have currently been offered an audition on a programme! So watch this space!

4. What would you say is your biggest achievement so far?

modelling for clothing companies, that's been really fun! I've joined with more than 3 companies and I model their clothes and in return they use the photos on their websites.
So far I've worked with static autopsy, Hampshire hemp, pure_joker and starting to work with Aumnie

5. How do you like to stay fit?

I love keeping my body fit and healthy! So I drink plenty of water with slices of lemon (or any fruit) as much as I can!
I keep active by constantly on the go with my son!
Playing football, chasing him about, going on long walks.
I also try and watch what I eat! I do sometimes eat the wrong things but if I can help it I will always pick a healthy option!

6. What’s your favourite food?

My favourite food is poached egg, on a toasted English muffin with mashed avocado! It's my faveeee! It's so yummy!

7. Any advice for people wanting to start modelling?

My advice for people wanting to get into modelling would be always so your research on who you are working with, that can be checking portfolios, references and even asking models if they know of the photographers ect. Always be yourself and only ever so jobs you are 100% comfortable and confident doing! Social media is a great platform for those wanting to start modelling!

8. What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?

Recently I was at a hotel shoot and I was laid on the bed on my stomach, after I had done shots on my stomach, I then went to lay on my back and as I did I flew off the bed and just disappeared into the gap between the bed and the glass wall, it was so funny! And so unexpected haha!

9. What’s song best describes you?

I think the song that describes me best is In the Morning by Jaded.
As anyone who knows me, knows what I'm like if I don't eat in the morning haha!

10. What would you be if you weren’t a model?

If I wasn't modelling I'd be a hair stylist! Because hair is my life! I've always cut my own hair and dyed it! I enjoy doing cool styles to others as well!

11. Tell me something about you not many people know?

Not many people know that I have a fake front left tooth.
When I was 11, I was doing a handstand and a boy come up to me and pulled my leg which made me smash my face onto concrete flooring which made my tooth break off and it was my adult tooth so it resulted on me having to get a veneer.

12. What do you like doing in your free time?

In my free time I love spending it with my son, friends and family! Anyone I love and care for I love seeing and spending time with them because I've lost a lot of people in my life and I know how precious time is with those who you love!
I also am very creative and I love drawing, painting and creating ideas for outfits! I also love learning, especially languages and reading books!

13. What do you think is the most interesting thing about you?

I think the most interesting thing about me is the fact that I've had a lot of struggles in life but I've never given up and I always work extra hard despite what comes my way! Especially now I've had a child! A interesting thing about me would be that I badly struggle with anxiety and I have done since I was a baby! Even my mum said as a baby I wouldn't interact with other children as I was always too worried and over thinking! It's something I'm always working on!

14. What was your nickname at school?

My nickname at school was usually midge or Lily or strawberry.
Midge because of my height haha and lily because that's my family nickname so close friends called me lil and strawberry because my last name sounds like that!

15. What three things do you need to be successful in this industry?

Punctuality, good communication and great teamwork!

16. Finally, if you were stranded on a desert island what's your one must have beauty product or accessory?

If I was stranded on a dessert island I would take my keaso pedicure - banana & peppermint SOS - Heal rescue.
It's a life saver for your feet! Especially on a island!
