BEHIND THE EYES
24 carat lover of stars, remote islands, wild nights, chic interiors, diamonds & little black dresses.
I learnt young that time's non-refundable and seeing the moon shine on the other side of the world changed me. My parents influenced my infatuation with travel, as I learnt that happiness is going in pursuit of, and realising dreams. Consequently, I have substantial dreams without limits to the lap of luxury.
As a child, I grew an enchantment for vocabulary and started to understand the power of our words, winning awards for creative and poetic work throughout my schooling. Writing became a creative outlet to express my desires and emotions.
Going into my twenties my words became informative as I combined my enthusiasms into an active travel blog- 'She Travels'.
Travel flourished into an opportunity I'd always take and this philosophy spilled into all areas of my life. Travel can indeed, turn an ordinary life into an extraordinary one.
Collectively, I spent two years backpacking South East Asia, Thailand's bleached shores have a home in my heart where I've visited 13 times - 13 is lucky for me.
I solo travelled Indonesia, attending yoga retreats and unveiling enthusiasms for hiking & scuba diving - I'm PADI advanced certified and have spent over 6 months in Bali.
Weaved between travel, I achieved a Bachelors degree in Marketing. During the 5 month vacations, I flew to the Greek Islands where I spent 4 long summers with my British workers family.
As I entered my final year of University, I knuckled down to achieve a first class honours,
simultaneously creating a web building business that gained traction in Manchester UK. I declined investment in 2016 the following year after graduation, I've been non conforming since the 90's.
My intuition told me I needed something bigger and I never settle for less than I desire.
After 3 years blogging although I adored it, She Travels yielded small returns- It no longer exists, although I'm reviving posts into articles for travel blogs & magazines. View them here.
What was left, was my social media following, that I've onwardly built upon.
Following University, travel interests took me west, I had a desire to be in LA. It's here that I saw a snapshot of a life that I couldn't un-see. It ignited a flame within me for fame, lust, style, money, luxury, cities and a fast life; I propelled that desire into a career change.
Despite being late in the game, I started modelling thereafter, denying age limitations to my dream. I uprooted my life in England, moving to Vancouver, Canada. My best friend and I shared a bed for 4 months in a basement suite, until we got on our feet in Canada.
The career transition was challenging, I felt I was backsliding, though I knew if I didn't pursue my dream, my heart would remind me on every beat.
Whilst getting started, I took an internship in Hong Kong working alongside a successful CEO, he taught me "If you want to be the best you have to sacrifice". I knew then that modelling would take maximum effort & persistence.
Since, I've modelled in New York, Chicago, Toronto, LA, London, Tokyo and Hawaii, I continue to grow and pursue it as a global career.
Moving to Canada gave me a base to explore the west, I've taken countless road trips in the States, hiking, canyoneering & touring national parks. I love deserts especially Arizona's; I plan to get a Harley Davidson, accompanied by leathers and cigarettes in the not so distant future.
I took an interest in skiing, backcountry hiking and camping, completing the West Coast and the Juan De Fuca trails; eventually I'll do the Appalachian trail.
My affections for writing awakened again and recent published works are based around dating, love, poetry & philosophy. Read my articles here.
4 years on in Canada, over a year in the States accumulatively, 13 lucky visits to Vegas and 40+ countries travelled, as I live my 30th year my heart is full of gratitude.
I'll publish my first poetry book in 2021, based around my ideologies about love. There's a compelling romanticism within me that I'm transmuting into short writings, combined with artwork to penetrate the hearts of my readers.
Under the umbrella of my company I have strict goals to excel in modelling, become a master influencer and expand in marketing consulting projects.
South & Central America have hooked my attention for my next backpacking trips, I'll live in Mexico to continue learning Spanish, learn salsa dancing and pick up on scuba diving.
As far as luxury travel goes, Pairs, Ibiza and NYC- Although it depends on economic recoveries and the status of the pandemic.
The charm of London captivates me for my next major home base as Vancouver closes to an end. Beforehand, I'm moving to Sydney to explore Oceana on a working holiday visa for a year, possibly two.
My love affair with writing, modelling and our worlds lands only breaches the tip of the iceberg. I'll stop at nothing to achieve my goals, using the power of my mind and my irresistibility as a woman, to take me to the highest heights.
I realise that every day is a gift, an opportunity to be fabulous, laugh and radiate love. I want to fulfil my duty to inspire friends, old and new, to be self-confident and harness self-control to live their fullest life.
And for you..
My goal is to inspire and heal you with the power of my words.
Paired with my imagery, I intend to invigorate your appetite to experience the greatness within our world, planting seeds of courage and desire, arousing the self-confident giant within you.
My hope is that you will express the beauty of your true self and use your power- that is uniquely being you.
I'm grateful for each of you that reads and takes interest in my work, and if you're reading this, we have through these words, already met.
