FJ Shoot: Generation Now

New faces.

We love championing up-and-coming talent. This month we photographed a group of fresh-faced models, who are just beginning to make their way in the industry. And because we think you’ll be seeing a lot more of these girls, we decided to get to know them too.

If I could change one thing about the world it would be… eradicate terrorism and [have] everyone live together peacefully.

The best advice I’ve ever received is… I know its clichéd but NEVER give up. Prove people wrong. There are so many famous and successful people in the world who were told they wouldn’t make it, but they did because they were determined.

My mum always tells me… simply just do what makes me happy and if I don’t enjoy something, then don’t do it. She’ll always support me no matter what.

Girls my age need to stop worrying about… how they look. If they are happy with who they are then it really doesn’t matter what others think.

My secret talent is… I can wiggle both my eyebrows, plus I do a great Dr. Evil.

If I could change one think about the world it would be… I don’t know. World Peace? Brexit? Donald Trump? Poverty? The ice epidemic? 

The best advice I have ever received is… a smile is the best makeup and do unto others… 

My favourite city is… Sydney, home never ceases to amaze. Paris is quite nice also, although I was only five at the time.

I was discovered… when my sister and I were at The Easter Show and were making our way down to the rides area.

In my spare time I like to…. go to the movies, but when I’m at home I love to read or play video games.

My secret talent is… I’m pretty good at drawing! Although that’s not really much of a secret talent, I talk about it all the time.

The best advice I’ve ever received is… try not to overthink the little stuff. Sometimes I get caught up in the details, so it’s good to remember to take a deep breath and look at the big picture.

My style icon is… Karlie Kloss always looks effortlessly beautiful. I admire how her clothes are always so simple and practical, yet still fashionable.

If I could have dinner with anyone it would be… J.K. Rowling, I am the biggest fan of the Harry Potter series and think she would be the coolest person to meet. Plus, she seems so nice!
