Fourteen days, twelve of our gorgeous models and one epic luxury resort. Yes, this is how MAXIM does the “Cradle of Polynesia”…
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m studying to be a teacher and have a passion for shaping little minds. I have a really amazing group of friends where I live on the Gold Coast, which takes up majority of my time, and I’m a very social person who hates missing a fun night out. I’ve just gotten back into modelling after a few years break and now that I’m happy with my body and healthy I’m really excited to see what opportunities come in the future.
What do you do when you’re not posing for MAXIM?
During the week I study and also work as a kindy teacher. I do something social most weekends with my friends whether it be drinks, dinner or chilled movie and take out nights.
Are there any funny anecdotes you can share about this about this Destination MAXIM trip?
Having to take my underwear off on the beach, because they were showing under the bikinis, then giving it to Bella the producer. Hours later, at dinner, I asked where my undies were and she pulled them out of her bra right there and then to give back to me. LOL!
What is your best asset?
I’m a very forgiving person and always give people the benefit of the doubt. Physically, I think I’m super lucky to have long legs and tanned skin.
When do you feel sexy and why?
I feel sexy when my skin is clear and healthy and of course when I’ve got on a nice dress and high heels.
What do you look for in a man?
Someone who can be fun, caring, understanding but can also put me in my place when needed. Don’t want to feel like I can walk all over a man.
Would you ever date one of your social media followers?
Sure, if they were the right fit and respectful then I don’t see why not.
Describe your ideal date?
I’m not picky as long as they are laidback and can hold a good conversation. Dinner with a few drinks always works for me.
