1.When did you first realise you wanted to be a model?
I think was I was in my early teens – I started to pay attention to appearance, celebs and models and thought Imagine if I could do that!
2.At what age did you first start modelling
My first modelling experience was being invited to London to create a portfolio with an ‘agency’! I dragged my mom and dad with me and it cost a LOT, I didn’t pursue it any further.
3.What was your first big break and how did it arise?
I can’t put down my first big break because all the projects I do are each their own and have their benefits for me and my career.
4.What would you say is your biggest achievement so far?
My biggest achievement with modelling at the moment would probably be being fast tracked to the Miss Birmingham 2017 Final – I didn’t expect it at all. It has definitely boosted my confidence and will promote my work.
5.How do you like to stay fit?

My favourite food… isn’t really healthy it has to be an Indian Curry!
