TIME TO PIVOT

‘The first audition was for a modelling job, nothing glamorous, for an insurance company leaflet. I went to the audition and I was in this big hall with all these people waiting to have their picture taken. There were so many lovely looking people in that hall. But I'd gone along thinking that I'd see what it was all about, and I had nothing to lose. I had such a lovely day and then I heard I'd got my first job, which felt amazing. It was a lovely surprise.’
