Q1) Tell us a little about yourself!

I'm the founder and CEO of both WINK Models and https://theright.fit/ - which is a marketplace for creative talent like models, actors, photographers and influencers. I founded my first business at 21, and have won awards like Top 30 under 30, B&T Media, Mumbrella Award for Innovation. Im also an ambassador for brands like La Prairie, Lamborghini, Max Factor and HP. 

Q2) Tell us about what you do, and why you do it

See above! I do this because I'm really passionate about creative talent, and helping our industry thrive. I also absolutely love technology and learning new things, and solving problems with new tech.

Q3) What makes you feel courageous?

Being surrounded by people who are championing each other, supporting one another to grow, makes me feel courageous. Ive built an amazing support network of team members, mentors, board members and advisors that help me on my journey every day.

Q4) What is one thing you wish you could tell your 16-year-old self?

To enjoy the journey more! Not to be so focused on the destination, and to celebrate the incremental victories along the way.

Q5) What is one piece of advice you can give a fellow lady who might be lacking courage?

That there will never be the perfect time to take a risk - you'll never have all the data you wish you could to predict the future. My best advice is to back yourself, surround yourself with people who champion you, and enjoy the challenge of learning.
