"Having been involved in the modelling industry for several decades, what I still enjoy most about the job is seeing someone really come into their own. This Model search is coming at a very good time as diversity is thriving. I'm looking for someone who is confident in their own skin and body, with a lot of personality."

"As someone who has modelled themselves, I know how it feels to be starting out in this industry and so can bring a level of empathy to the panel! I'm looking for someone who can show us their personality through the way they move and pose."
