Riddle gets up close and personal with our Silky Smooth model
What are your plans and ambitions?
I’m currently studying graphic design, so it would be really great to get somewhere with that. But career ambitions are boring! This summer I’m heading over to Malawi; they’ve had bad flooding and I hope to help rebuild the damaged buildings. I guess I’d like to keep doing things like that on the side, if I can find the time.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
I’ve been lucky in that I’ve always been surrounded by people full of great advice. My sister once told me I shouldn’t pick my nose in public. Things have been going well since then.
What’s the weirdest rumour you’ve ever heard about yourself?
I haven’t heard too many rumours about me. But one time I wanted to be cool at school so I spread a rumour about me. I told everyone that my Dad was Sporticus.
What was your biggest break?
I think my biggest break was back in 2009. It was sports day and it came to the most speculated event of the day, the 800 meters (my forte)! I’d been training for months and the gun popped and off we went. After a growling few minutes of blood sweat and tears I crossed the line in 4th place!
Do you consider yourself lucky?
I’ve been incredibly lucky. I have the best family and a couple of nice friends.
What’s most important in your life?
The things I value most would be my family. There’s a lot of us and we’re a real team. I also have a pet tortoise called Tom. He’s always going to listen to me and has been there through thick and thin.
What other brands do you aspire to own?
I’m not too fussed about the brand. I’m wearing a Carhartt Jacket at the moment, it seems to be pretty good.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
I think we all have our guilty pleasures. It would be boring if I told you I’m obsessed with almond croissants but then it wouldn’t be ok for me to tell you about other things. That’s a mean question!
Describe your personal sense of style.
Someone the other day told me that I dress like and “old man”. I think he was trying to be malicious but I took it as a compliment as I think there are plenty of old men around who look pretty trendy….
