Over the moon! It’s a dream for me because I have always known about the agency, and how big it is. As soon as I came into the office I had a really good feeling, and I'm really looking forward to what the future holds! I am still fairly new to the game so always learning, and I have been fortunate enough to of booked some really good jobs, and worked alongside some top models
