What you would be doing if you weren’t a model?

I would probably be back at college studying something or in an apprenticeship.

I used to be a competitive swimmer, so I trained like everyday but I just go to the gym now mainly.

I would say King Krule is my favourite artist at the moment.

First album bought ever?

Can’t really remember buying albums but I guess it would of been something like a Nirvana album or some early Kings of Leon stuff as I was really into them when I was younger.

What would you choose between working on a photo shoot or catwalk?

I would choose photo shoot as it’s more satisfying seeing photos used for something that people can actually see, rather than a show that is over so quick.
