What are the best aspects of the industry, and the worst?
There's no worst for me. It's all really inspiration and enjoyable. I love the travelling, it's so exciting going to places you could never imagine going to. Meeting new people is also always. It's definitely a fun job. The only thing I do find difficult is being away from friends and family but you have to remind yourself it's all for good reason.
Do you think your Burberry campaign was a turning point?
Yes it definitely was turning point for me. To do any big campaign always boosts a models career.
