How did you become a model? And why?
About a year ago I won Britain’s Next Top Model. I have a real drive and passion for it.

Have you always wanted to be a model? 
I’ve always had a love for the fashion industry. I did textiles at college and I think that’s where I truly fell in love with the idea of modelling.

Who are your heroes in life and in modelling? 
Obviously number one heroes are my parents, but in modelling Jena Goldsack. I love how confident and positive she is.

Confident, funny and doesn’t take herself too seriously.

It would definitely be within the industry whether that be behind the scenes or working with a magazine.

What was the best advice you’ve ever been given? And who gave it to you? 
Be true to yourself. It’s a Wardell family saying.

What do you miss most when you’re travelling? 
My family.

What is your favourite song or songs to walk to? 
I love a good Kasabian tune or the good old Morrissey.

What is your opinion on the fashion and modelling industries? 
I would love to see more diversity within the fashion and modelling industry without a doubt.
