ROCKY girl Lydia Hunt considers herself lucky.

She was spotted by Gold Coast's Summer Fisher from Busy Models a year ago at the 2010 Girlfriend Rimmel Model Search, and was signed to the prestigious Vivien's Model Management.

Lydia says it was lucky to be spotted so quickly, but since then it has been nothing but hard work.

“I wasn't sure what I wanted to do before I entered that competition, but being signed and getting to go to Japan recently, has really made me realise how much I enjoy it and want to make it my career,” the 17-year-old Cathedral College student said.

Having been so successful in Osaka, her adventure will continue during the September school holidays when Lydia will fly to New Zealand where she has been earmarked to shoot several high profile editorials.

Then after finishing school in November she will fly to Tokyo for two months and then on to Paris where she has recently been signed with top agency Oui Management.

“This last year has gone really fast and I'm really excited for the end of the year,” she said. “I hope to end up in high fashion eventually.”

Lydia said she looked up to young models like Codie Young who was signed to the same agency, and said that any girl aspiring to take up modelling should have a go.

“Just take some pictures of yourself and send them away because the agencies do look at them, and just try your best,” she said.
