Hey Emily, congrats on your first MAXIM cover. How do you feel?

It’s a surreal emotion and it’s always been a dream of mine. MAXIM Australia has had so many inspirational women on the cover and I feel honoured to be part of it.

What did you enjoy most about this cover shoot?

We did the photo shoot at the beautiful White Pearl Resorts in Mozambique and there is so many aspects of the shoot I enjoyed. Not only did I get to work alongside an incredible team, I had the opportunity to escape my demanding business schedule in London and travel to the stunning Mozambique. This truly was a magical experience.

You look gorgeous. When do you feel sexy?

Thank you very much! For me, feeling sexy is a personal experience. Nothing beats getting up in the morning and doing an amazing workout at the gym then coming home, having a shower and slipping into my outfit for the day. This means I’m ready for business and nothing is sexier than a woman on a mission.

What is your best asset?

I’d say my mind and personality as it allows me not only to achieve business goals but to experience happiness and show others kindness.

Tell us a bit more about yourself.

I was born and raised in London, England and I’m a bit of a water baby — I’ve always loved the ocean. I used to be a lifeguard, am a qualified scuba diver and I’ve surfed and skied all over the world. I’m really fortunate as I’ve also been able to travel a lot as a model and through representing England at international beauty pageants – this has helped me experience new cultures and meet people from different walks of life. I studied fashion design at university and after graduating I went on to launch a fashion label called Aloura London – this inspired me to explore other business opportunities and start up two other companies.

Wow, nice work. So, what do you do when you’re not posing for MAXIM?

The newest installment, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, details the Viking invasion of 9th Century England from the perspective of history’s most notorious raiders.
