“The image I have chosen is from a Vogue Australia editorial photographed by Nicole Bentley from the cover story of the June 2010 issue... This image feels so important to me as it is such an incredible benchmark to reach as a young Aboriginal model who grew up in Tweed Heads, a world away from this image. To be given the opportunity to work with an incredible team, dressed in Miu Miu, shooting for an iconic global magazine felt quite surreal. I have always hoped that this personal achievement would be inspirational to people of varying cultural and socio economic upbringings, for them to know that they can achieve their goals and become part of a world they may have initially thought they didn’t belong in.”
