My first international job I scored was at the age of 18, when my life in Sydney was a chaotic mess. I had zero stability, constantly moving around Sydney and sticking strong to the notion that I did NOT want a regular 9-5 job. Ever. So was doing a lot of different jobs in modelling and events to earn a living. In the previous years I’d slowly inched my way into the world of modelling, so I made that the driving point to finding my first international job.
The idea to start modelling began when I was on set as an extra shooting for Home and Away (a very common job for young people where I grew up, as the show is shot locally) when I over heard another extra talking about a hair modelling job she had just done, and how amazing and easy the job was.
Me, at this time, had long thick healthy hair, and with the industrious attitude I seem to have acquired early I set out to use it to my advantage.
I went home and literally googled ‘hair modelling jobs’ where I found an online casting site, and started emailing some potential hair salons and hair dressers to debut my modelling career as a hair model. And would you have, I nailed my first casting and booked my first job hair modelling for the worlds best hostility from Russia, Georgy Kot. Photos from this event were featured in Vogue, and other media outlets, so gave me a little budge into the competitive world that is modelling.
