Modelling

Modeling experience

I make an excellent swimwear and lingerie model as I always keep very fit and toned. I have a great passion for modelling and have had past experience in photographic and runway campaigns. I have completed promotional work in the past for international airlines and companies which I thoroughly enjoyed. I was crowned Miss Christchurch in April 2009 and have competed in Miss Earth New Zealand and Miss World New Zealand 2010. I also have represented NZ in two large international beauty pageants.
