What do you do currently do?
I’m in my second year of fashion at AUT. I’m a creative on the side and I model a bit.
Where were you born and where are you now?
I was born in Cambodia and now I’m in Ponsonby, Auckland.
What keeps you inspired?
I am very stubborn and I have a crazy amount of drive. If i want to do something, I’m doing it. I’m inspired by the people I meet and the stories I get to hear.
When was the last time you met someone who changed you? Who and how?
When I was in NYC, I met this beautiful queer person, Mimi. They just reminded me to be patient and to enjoy what is in front of me. As I said I’m very stubborn so sometimes I forget that my actions leave lasting impressions on people. I’m a work in progress.
What do you like to do offline?
I love going to Piha and walking. I love hiking. Recently I have been boxing and gyming a lot which is a good use of my time now that I’m unemployed.
How does beauty factor into your world?
Beauty is everywhere you just have to stop and take enough time to soak it all in.
