I wanted a
culture shock, I'd never left the country prior to my leaving.
Australia will always be my home but I wanted to be uncomfortable,
I wanted to be challenged. It was either the UK or the Philippines
but I chose the country that I knew less about. I bought a one way
ticket and hoped for the best. I was thrust into the world of
modelling and commercials - as is quite common among young
travellers exploring the Philippines. Although a good many of the
projects make me cringe now, it gave me invaluable training in
production, marketing, retail and experience in front of the camera
- all of which I still use today.
