Which A-levels are you studying at the moment?
I'm taking philosophy, maths, English and Spanish.
Do you like living in London? Are you a proud Londoner?
Yeah I like London, I feel very lucky to be here because it's becoming so ridiculously expensive barely anybody young can afford to live here anymore but if I'm honest i think I'd prefer to live somewhere with more young/ creative people where you don't have to live with your parents and spend all your time working just to afford a tiny apartment. That being said, there are amazing parts of London like little pockets of creativity, they're just becoming more and more scarce which is sad.
How did you get into Instagram?
I literally just had an Instagram account when I was younger and then I guess I started trying to take more interesting photos and emulating people who I thought had cool accounts, so then people began to message me asking to do shoots and I started modelling through that.
What do you want to become in the future?
I'm so unsure about what I want to be, ideally I'd become a recluse and live with a herd of antelope far far away from capitalism.
Do you wish to go onto further education?
Yes, my dream university is Columbia and I'd love to study philosophy and maybe English as well but I'm also trying for universities in the UK, I am really lucky to have the ability to continue my education so I reckon I've got to take advantage of that.
What is the meaning of your name?
My real name is Sylvia, it means like a woodland spirit or nymph kind of thing- I was named after my great grandmother who died the day after I was born
