big break: “I won the U.K. Elite Model Look 2009 contest. They had to call my name twice, because I didn’t believe it! It was so surreal.”
runway ritual: “There’s a lot of pressure when doing a show, so before I walk out there, I always pray and remind myself that I’ve been put in that moment for a reason. When I did Louis Vuitton last year, I was so excited that everything was a blur!”
self-esteem tip: “Whenever I didn’t get a job, I used to think, What’s wrong with me? But I’ve learned that it’s not because I’m not good enough; they’re just going for a different look. Remembering that modeling is a business helps me keep confident.”
