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 grew up in Perth, WA and moved to Sydney in 2013. I’ve always been into fashion and modelling but only recently started taking it seriously. Modelling really helped me to overcome things in my life I went through by letting me be myself and express who I really am. It allows me to share the most creative and raw parts of myself with the outside world. I hope to one day make it my full-time job and travel the world doing what I love.
What did you love most about this Destination MAXIM?
I just love that I met so many amazing people and made friends along the way. We had so many funny moments on the trip and made memories that will stick with me through life!
What is your best asset?
I love my skin and my hair are my favourite physical assets. I also love that I’m really confident and very strongminded.
When do you feel sexy?
When I know I’m taking care of my body by eating healthy, working out and taking care of my mental health.
What do you do when you’re not posing for MAXIM?
I’m a university student currently studying a bachelor of psychology and work as a part-time model. You can also catch me hanging with friends, eating out or at the beach.
What would people be most surprised to know about you?
Most people think I’m all about the superficialities in life when I’m actually very down to earth. My head is in the clouds most of the time but I’m actually a very intelligent person. I love reading and expanding my knowledge about the world and people – I think this comes from my love for nature.
What do you look for in a man?
Humour is a must, confidence, direction in life, ambition, honesty and genuineness.
Describe your ideal date.
I’m really easy when it comes to dates, usually I’m the indecisive one, but I think the beach or a beach walk would be my ideal… or anything which involves food.
What’s next for you?
I’m featuring in a few music videos this month and also have some exciting photo shoots with my make-up artist and photographers in Sydney. Keep a look out on my Instagram!
