Now living in Mortdale and working as a model, she said she was proud to be a woman of colour in the running but wasn't worried about tokenism.

"There are so many standards of beauty so I'm really excited to be part of the season of diversity," she told Confidential.

"I knew within myself that I was on the show because of who I am as person and what I have to offer. "I'm happy to be one of the first black girls on the show."
