Why did you decide to audition for the show?

I heard it was an amazing experience last year, and then some of my friends persuaded me to go for it! I thought I’d audition and have fun but not get through, and they teach you how to walk so I went for it. And I got through!

If you could choose to walk the catwalk to any song, what would it be?

Oh my gosh… Savage by Whethan.

It must have been so nerve-wracking to audition for the show… What are your tips for self-confidence?

Just don’t think about it. I really didn’t process it when I was auditioning and it helped me so much! But more than that… just be yourself. Because if you’re going to get through on your another personality then it’s not worth it… They want to see you.

Why did you decide to audition for the show?

I did it last year, and it’s for a great cause. The whole reason we do this every year is for two amazing charities, and that’s the main reason I did this.

If you could choose to walk the catwalk to any song, what would it be?

That’s such a hard question! Probably Vogue.

It must have been so nerve-wracking to audition for the show… What are your tips for self-confidence?

I guess it’s about understanding that no one can make you feel a way you don’t want to feel. As an individual, you decide how you want to feel. It’s all a state of mind – if you feel nervous around someone it’s because you want to feel nervous. You’re in control of your own emotions.

Natalie Cheng

Why did you decide to audition for the show?

I think I auditioned because I’m really into fashion, but at the same time I noticed that there’s a real lack of Asian/Chinese models in the fashion world, so it’s a great way for me to represent.

If you could choose to walk the catwalk to any song, what would it be?

This might take some time… Rockstar by Post Malone.

It must have been so nerve-wracking to audition for the show… What are your tips for self-confidence?

I think… To walk into a room with lots of beautiful people it kinda gets you… But at the same time, if you’re already there then why not just give it a go! These opportunities don’t come along often.

Jainam Tolia

Why did you decide to audition for the show?

I did it last year, and it was great socially – really lovely people. And the same has happened today! I wouldn’t really say I’m a model, that’s not me, I just enjoyed it last year and wanted to do it again.

If you could choose to walk the catwalk to any song, what would it be?

Magic Jordan – Gave Your Love Away. Spotify it.

It must have been so nerve-wracking to audition for the show… What are your tips for self-confidence?

Just don’t think too much into it – don’t go in with too many expectations. Thinking beforehand puts too much pressure on the moment, so enjoy it and think afterwards.

Lucy Cunningham

Why did you decide to audition for the show?

I’d watched it last year and thought it was an amazing show, and then a friend encouraged me to actually audition and they accepted me!

If you could choose to walk the catwalk to any song, what would it be?

That’s really hard! Any piece by Beyonce… I’m not an extrovert fan of hers but she gets me in a really good, positive, confident mood.

It must have been so nerve-wracking to audition for the show… What are your tips for self-confidence?

Just think – everyone else is in the same boat. Everyone starts somewhere and especially for this everyone’s a student so they should be rooting for you anyway.

Cameron Tallant

Why did you decide to audition for the show?

I heard about the show through a friend, and went with them to support their audition. And then when I got there I decided I might as well give it a shot and just went for it! It’s a great cause and an exciting thing to be part of.

If you could choose to walk the catwalk to any song, what would it be?

Pull Up To My Bumper – Grace Jones.

It must have been so nerve-wracking to audition for the show… What are your tips for self-confidence?

Yeah, terrifying! I think you just have to block everyone else out, and back yourself. The worst that can happen is you don’t get through but you can always try again.
