The blonde beauty, who is signed to 1st Option Models, is currently studying medicine at Trinity College and admits it can be tough juggling the two.

"It's a bit of a balancing act, I'm studying for my exams at the moment so I've had to take a few weeks out, but modelling is a very flexible job and I love it," she told the Herald.

"I love both of them though and there's nothing better after a stressful day of classes than switching off on a shoot."

Once she's finished her exams, the 21-year-old plans to jet off to London as she also has an agency in the English capital.

"I love London and I spent some time working there last year as well," she said.

"The modelling scene there is quite similar to here - I had heard some horror stories but I've had great experiences. I can't wait to go back once I've finished my exams," she said.
