Advice to younger self, "Just be who you are. Just be comfortable - it's so rare. Where I come from has a messed up values system - as a dark skinned person, you don't feel beautiful at all, ever. I would tell my younger self to just get over that be who you are."

“I just love and enjoy spending time with a small amount of people who are really important to me”
Advice to younger self, “Enjoy every stage. Just enjoy the moment. When you’re younger you get so nervous. But now, I sort of think – I don’t care! If I don’t know something, I’ll ask a question.”
Beauty advice, “Look after your décolletage. I think younger girls need to think about that earlier on. And your hands too!’
On diversity, “It’s good to be exposed to other cultures and opinions”

On moving to New Zealand, “I worked in Shanghai for three years and I was tired of [my] job. I told my mum I wanted to try something different. Everyone there is striving for success and my mum told me – ‘you are totally different; you don’t need to define yourself by being competitive.’ So I decided I wanted to be happy in a simple, natural way.”
Advice to younger self, “My parents were farmers and not really educated. When I was growing up I listened to myself as no-one was there to give me advice. I feel so happy that I’ve made all these decisions on the way. Stay with your heart and be brave.”
“My skin had become quite patchy in terms of dryness and oiliness. I had the typical t-zone. Using Rosehip oil is quick and my skin immediately feels hydrated. I just love it. It’s a simple as that.”
“At the end of the day we are beautiful and it really has very little to do with our façade. It’s the inner light shining that brings the beauty to the surface.”
“I feel my most beautiful after a run. I did a half marathon last year and as much as I hated it, I felt amazing afterwards.”
“Good things come around. Cool stuff happens if you do cool things for others.”
“Natural has become more important to me while I was pregnant and breastfeeding because I know that everything that I would put on my skin would end up going into my little boy.”
“The thing I really like about myself physically is the fact that I grew a baby. That gives me a new-found appreciation for my body. I also love the strength that I have when I’m working out.”
“I think it’s amazing that [Trilogy doesn’t] retouch images of women because why should we really? - it’s true beauty. It doesn’t need to be Photoshopped.”
“Women should collectively look after one another.”
