Please, tell us about yourself
I was born in South Korea, but left when I was just under 3 years old. My childhood was spent in the Philippines. Then around 10 years old, I moved here in Canada. I moved a lot in my life, and I think that’s why traveling the world is part of who I am. I have BA in criminology and justice as well. Now, I am a full-time flight attendant and part-time model.

When did you start modelling?
I started modeling when I was 18, however I took a long hiatus during my university years to finish school. Then maybe at around age 21, I got back into modeling as a freelance model.
Who inspired your modeling career?
Cindy Crawford was always my idol when it came to modeling. However, as a Canadian, I look up to Coco Rocha and Jessica Stam.

As a fashion model, what is your go to fashion tips?
My go to fashion tip is to be comfortable in what you wear and look chic at the same. You shouldn’t care what others think, but you need to be okay with what you wear.
What is your favourite (s) runway experience(s) and why?
My favourite runway experience is with the CAFW (Canadian Asian Fashion Week). The reason behind this is because it was awesome to represent my Asian background and support other Asians in the fashion industry.

You are also a fabulous flight attendant for the Canadian Airlines. Please tell us your all time favourite destination you have travelled to and why?
My all-time favourite destination is Frankfurt, Germany. Our hotel is just outside of the city, in a town called Mainz. This is where I fell in love with Germany. Germany has an amazing history and architecture. Walking along the Rhine river in Mainz, is a bonus! You can never say no to this place.
They say flight attendants are expert at beauty secret when traveling. Do you have any beauty secret you want share with us?
My beauty secret is to always stay hydrated. At the end of the day (on a long flying day), whether at the hotel or at home, I apply a fask mask before bed. I also carry a face mist for the plane, since planes are so dry. I finish the day with drinking lots of water!

What is the most fun or interesting thing about your job as a Flight Attendant that people do not know apart from traveling country to country?
Before being a flight attendant, we go through an intensive 2 month training. This involves knowing all the different airplanes, security and safety procedures and most importantly the emergency procedures. Once we pass being a flight attendant, every year we have to go through training and pass that training in order to keep flying (almost like renewing your license).
What is (are) your most memorable moment (s) as a Flight attendant thus far and why?
As a flight attendant, we are the ones people see on board the plane, and who gives you drinks and food. However, we are more than just a sky server. We are there to save you in case of an emergency as well.
I had many incidents when I had to deal with medical situations on board, but one of my most memorable moment was not even a medical or an emergency one. On April 2018, I was one of the flight attendants bringing some of the Toronto van attack victims' parents from Korea to Toronto. The incident occurred in the North York area, also known as the Korean town. We had 3 sets of parents coming to Toronto, not knowing if their child was alive or dead. As a Korean speaker on that flight, I could have said something, but no words were needed. I just took their hands and just supported them with my touch. I see everything from good to bad on planes. But I know that sometimes even the littlest thing I do on board, can effect someone.

What advice would you give to someone just starting out their career as fashion model and hoping to make it in the fashion industry
Never lose hope and don’t give up. If you want it, go for it. Stay positive! The fashion industry is a very compétitive place, know that you will most likely fall at some point, but have that courage to get up and try again.
What can we expect from you in the next 2 years or so ?
I’ll be moving to Montreal soon to advance my modeling career. And within the next 2 years, I am hoping to get into the Korean market as well.
