  A couple of things of which you have done or are doing now and your inspiration and reasons for doing them:

Acting is my greatest love and truest form of expression,

film photography captures a moment true to feeling - the process of capturing and developing ignite an inspiration I find difficulty explaining,

writing day to day memoirs - keeps my head on straight and maybe I’ll write a book one day,

working on a jewellery line - jewellery adds and unspoken essence to a person, 

dance -I’ve not been trained but I’m always dancing - releases the inner demons that like speak naughty things in my ear. ;)

What is beauty to you:

To me, beauty is ambiguous...

my eye is drawn to superficial notes of attraction to toned bodies, clean skin, and symmetrical faces.

My heart is drawn to radical opinions, gestures of gratitude and empathy.

What little things do you buy just for you even though they may never be seen or known to others:

I collect magnets from every city I travel to (:

Skate and yoga every day.

positive thinking, reading, writing, observing.

 What do you do to look after your skin.

I’m obsessed with skincare... i like serums. drink lots of water and tea ;P

 What do you find beautiful in others:

Honesty, new ideas, creative minds, positive outlook, gratitude for life.

And a smiler, I love those who smile.

 What are your thoughts about ageing and beauty:

Take care of yourself, laugh lots!

Age is knowledge is power is life is experience is beauty.

 What gives you strength in life:

Family, friendship. 

 What gives you a sense of identity:

my wardrobe - acting - reading - writing - opinions - long talks - photography - dancing, 

being in front and behind the camera.


What causes are close to you heart:

Our impact on the environment, equality for all.

What is one of the most important things for you in your life whether it’s something you have or are looking to achieve:

Acting - it’s my greatest form of expression.

 Who represents a beautiful person for you at this moment and why:

My mum forever and always,

because of her bottomless heart of empathy, compassion, and commitment,

for her friends, family, and anyone that might need a hand to hold.

 A moment in your life that had a big effect on who you are now:

Heartbreak (there’s been a couple). it wasn’t until my lowest point that I recognized my own power.

 Any other thoughts on health, mental health, age, beauty, life you would like to share:

Everyone will have an opinion of you, their opinion is valid but it does not matter,

cliché yes, but the only opinion that matters is your own,

take a risk and follow a good feeling, you create your life, and you can have ANYTHING you want.
