Get to know Georgia Gleeson, the 16-year-old fresh-faced beauty from Sydney, Australia.
What made you want to be a model?
I wanted to be model at the age of 11 when my sister took photos of me for her photography class. I realized how much I loved it, and how easily it came to me. My passion for the job has grown after having more photoshoots.
What inspires you?
Seeing models who were scouted via Instagram when they were younger, the same way I was, and they are now big names and successful.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself signed with agencies all over the world, and working for all different designers. Living in NYC would be a bonus.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I can do I really good impression of a Kookaburra (native Australian bird).
Do you have any heroes?
Everyone’s mum is their hero, but my mum is a true hero. She looks after our family, including my Nan and my father, who suffered a brain injury 8 months after they were married. She is the strongest person I know and I look up to her so much. She loves her family and would do anything to make us happy and achieve our goals in life.
What do you enjoy about being a model?
I love being in front of the camera because I can escape reality, and be whomever I want to be.
Do you have an issue or cause you are passionate about?
I am passionate about looking after our planet and its animals. I feel our generation needs to protect our planet so future generations can see how beautiful this world is.
What designer do you hope to work with in the future?
That’s a hard one, because I look up to so many designers and think they are all amazing. But, if I had to model for one, it would have to be Chanel. I love how elegant the clothes and bags are.
What is your favorite quote?
“Everything happens for a reason.”
What is something new that you want to try?
I would love to see snow, I have never seen it in real life. And I would love to try and snowboard or ski.
What is your favorite joke?
My favorite joke would probably be one of my dad’s jokes. He would say, “How do you get Pikachu on bus?” And we would all say, "I don't know how did he?" And dad would say, “You Pokemon!” Haha one of his classics!
How would you describe your personality?
I would say that I’m a very humble person who doesn't judge. I love helping others.
