What are your favourite ways to stay fit?
I like to go to the gym at-least 4 times a week to do cardio and lift weights for an hour. Going out on the weekends to clubs and dancing is a great way to sneak in some cardio. I like to rollerblade in the summer and get a little sunshine in. Sometimes I do a quick 30 minute circuit in my basement to get some exercise in. Bickram hot yoga, I do it once a week and swear it is the hardest and most important workout I do all week for my mind, body and soul

What are your 3 favourite quotes? Why?

E.G.B.A – Everything’s Gonna Be Alright, I use to repeat this to myself when I was younger and was going through difficult times that I felt would never end but always did.

Live, love, laugh and learn – cheesy but I still feel it is true, live in the moment, love the people in your life, laugh because it feels good and learn to keep growing.

Sometimes it’s the smallest decisions that change your life forever – such a great quote and remind us you never know where life will take you, so be nice and kind to everyone!

If you could give advice to your younger self, what would it be and why?
I would tell myself you need to learn from the past but don’t hold onto it. You are always in control of your present, should look forward to the future and learn from the past!

You have been an agency director with Numa for over a year now, what is some advice you would give to aspiring models?
Modelling is an art you need to be passionate about, you should be excited about all the opportunities you get because not every opportunity will be paid, but all opportunities are great learning experiences.

What are 3 major goals you want to accomplish in life?
Have amazing friends (check!) Go on crazy fun adventures around the world (check!) Buy a house for myself (saving up for currently)

Best advice you’ve ever received?
Work hard because all things in life you need to work for them.

What is your favourite element of being a part of the Numa family?
My co-workers – I miss them when I don’t see them because they feel like family.

Tell us something about you that might surprise people?
I used to be really shy. To overcome this I constantly put myself in stressful and new situations until I felt less shy and more confident. Now I am pretty confident and outgoing which was something that took me many years to get to.
