“A fun fact about myself – you’ll probably never see me with the same hair colour! My idol growing up in the moguls world used to be Hannah Kearney but now I would say I look up to my sister Leonie A LOT, she is my heroine after all that she has been through, she has shown me that giving up is no option.”
