How did you get your break in the fashion and entertainment industry?

Becoming a model has been my dream for years, however I only recently made a break into the industry. I went to a casting in the Gold Coast where I met Grant Dwyer, Founder of Adpro Management Group who saw potential in me and gave me the confidence and skills to be part of the Miss Multiverse Australia competition, which I am now a national finalist.

What do you most enjoy about the fashion and entertainment industry?

I love meeting and working with different people involved in the photo shoots. This includes the Makeup Artist, Hairdresser, Photographer, Models and all the assistants involved. Everyone is always so positive and each provides great support, and I like to surround myself with that kind of positive energy.

What's your current projects?

Other than being selected as Top 10 Miss Multiverse Australia National Finalist which I am very excited about, I am currently studying Law at University of Southern Queensland and am working towards getting more exposure and nurturing opportunities in the modelling and fashion industry, which my Agent is actively supporting. I have recently done some amazing model shoots with Raj Suri of Global Style Australia and with Graham Shearer shooting in Byron Bay.

What are your plans for life after fashion and modelling, or do you have a plan in motion to keep working in the industry in a sustainable career?

Once I finish my Law degree I hope to work in Human Rights law as I am passionate about helping people and making a genuine difference.

What's your favourite brands at present? (dress, bikini and shoes)?

I love my Pajeana Swimwear from Brazilian Flirting store in Byron Bay, Rose Noir Cocktail and Evening dresses from Smik Boutique Rose Hill, Oogii Shoes and Hand bags, Maui Jim Eyewear, Pretty Porter Kaftans, Endless Love Lingerie, and my AE Alannah Brown Organic Coconut Body Scrub.

What and who inspires you?

Jennifer Hawkins inspires me as she started out as a model like so many girls today and now she has achieved so much and is a very talented woman, she never stopped believing in herself.

And of course my parents, especially my grandmother. My Grandmother had a really hard life growing up as she lived through World War Two and the Hungarian Revolution. I admire that when she arrived to Australia with my mother as Immigrants she gave up everything so her family could have a good life. Her dedication to her family has definitely been passed on to my parents who are the most generous and selfless people I know. They are my role models.

What's the biggest challenges you have overcome?

I’ve always been lucky in life to not be faced with many challenges. But up until 4 months ago I was living in Queensland. I was living there for nearly 3 years in a small rural town west of Brisbane working in the hospitality industry where I made some great friends, but I realised that in order to get the most out of a modelling career and to represent my State NSW in which I grew up in the Miss Multiverse competition I would have to move back to Sydney. This was a tough decision to make but it was necessary one as I have met so many amazing people since I have been back in Sydney and been presented with a lot more modelling opportunities.

When your not working in the industry, what do you do to relax?

When I’m not working I like to read classical books, play the piano, and love exercising.

What's your motto?

Pursue opportunities, and don’t be afraid to take risks.
