How discovered:
Through Facebook, a major casting director took a liking to me through Julie who works for my agency now Heartbreak and they saw the potential in me and signed me.

Best modeling experience so far?
Shooting British Vogue the Hope issue with my sister Jacqueline and doing a naked cover for Eurowoman.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Right now, I’m obsessed with working with a charity organization that provides clean water through these big containers that supply solar power. The solar panel powers the containers and can also power these remote villages with electricity and hopefully internet. My wish is to start with Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia, and place 20 to 40 of these containers in remote regions and then move to other countries across Africa.

What is something you’ve always wanted to do/try?
I’ve always wanted to go skydiving in New Zealand or something equally as extreme, like walking in a haute couture show.

How do you want to make an impact in the world?
I wish to change how the world views trans people. I want to create a safe world for the trans community. A world where we are not victimized nor ostracized, and our bodies used as political weapons. I want to change the horrible dehumanization of trans people that leads to the devastation of people killing us.

I also want to bring more awareness to sustainability and the real work we have to do to save our world and continue being vocal about social injustice.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Be true to who you are, live in your light and don’t be fearful of living.
