Hello! My name is Rhianna, I'm 19 years old from Bristol UK.

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

I realised I wanted to be a model from a young age, I always loved being in front of the camera and posing and dressing up. I always used to tell my mum one day I'll be a model.

2. At what age did you first start modelling?

I started modelling in 2016 when I was 16. I did my first ever test shoot in Birmingham, the photographers I worked with said I made their job easy and I was a natural in front of the camera. After the test shoot I was signed with an agency I worked with them for a little bit but my confidence got knocked so I stopped. I tried to find other things to do but nothing ever came close to modelling, after a couple of years from not doing any modelling I decided I wanted to try again as I gained my confidence back, I always used Instagram regardless and luckily I got noticed by another photographer who had his own clothing range he approached me and asked if I wanted to shoot in his clothing, I went ahead with it and the shots were amazing, ever since I've never looked back, learned to ignore nasty comments and just do me, never going to give up doing what I love.

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

My first big break was when I got approached by a photographer who has his own clothing range, he asked me to shoot in his clothing.. so I did, after that shoot I managed to get published, seeing my face in magazines really made me feel like I can chase my dreams and get to where I want to be.

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

My biggest achievement is publications, this year I've been published a numerous amounts of times and even made Model Of The Month in a magazine called Modelz View. My Instagram is growing daily I've reached up to a following of 13.7k this year.

5. How do you like to stay fit?

I like to horse ride, go out for walks and jogs. I also joined the gym again recently, I go 4 days a week. I always try and eat good and keep a balanced diet.

6. What’s your favourite food?

My favourite food is chicken, I'm chicken mad!

7. Any advice for people wanting to start modelling?

My advice for people wanting to start modelling is to never give up, if you want to do something.. do it! Do what makes you happy, don't listen to anyone apart from yourself.

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

The funniest thing that happened to be recently well its quite embarrassing as well to be honest.. I was about to get in my taxi from a night out, there was loads of people around I was walking fine came out of the kebab shop and my high heal got stuck in between the pavement slabs.. I tried to move but it was like I was stuck in the mud.. before you know it I face plant the floor, kebab and mayonnaise all over my dress and in my hair. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE!! A night to remember for sure though.. haha!!

9. What’s song best describes you?

Little Mix - Power
This song describes me best because I now feel like I have the power, I have a lot of confidence now more than I've ever had before.

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

Along side modelling I also do hairdressing, I love making people feel and look good. Hairdressing has always been my other option.

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

I like to be on my own.. doing my own thing. Its one of them where if you know.. you know.

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

In my free time I love socialising with friends and family, I like to go out and have food and drinks. I horse ride a lot in my spare time and keep active on social media accounts.

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

The most interesting thing about me is when I was on TV on a show called Just Tattoo Of Us. It really showed mine and my best friends personality and really did test the friendship, it’s the most interesting thing about me because people didn’t think I’d ever screw her up as bad as I did.

14. What was your nickname at school?

I never really had a nickname at school everyone just used to call me Rhi short for Rhianna.. however my parents have always called me Lil as i was always up to mischief when I was younger.

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

To be successful in this industry you need to take care of your appearance, have a pleasant, professional attitude with good people skills and patience, fitness and stamina to be able to cope with long, tiring days and journeys.
