What do you love most about being a Brand Ambassador?
The thing I love the most about being a Brand Ambassador is when working for Elevate, all staff are treated equally and fairly. To me, that’s something that really stands out and makes me want to continue working with them, because not only do I feel valued, but I feel as though I’m making a difference.
We’ve heard you’re a dancer, could you tell us a little bit about this?
Of course! So, I’m currently a professional dancer and dance model. I’ve been a dancer for about 10 years, starting at the age of 18. I’ve done a lot of big TV shows, club performances, tours, commercials and music videos – the most recent one for a group called ‘Imagine Dragons’, we’ve now got about 2 billion views on YouTube!
What’s been the most memorable moment you’ve had working with Elevate?
That’s a tough one! There’s been so many amazing moments working with Elevate, I don’t think I can choose just one…I’d probably say the Major League Baseball. There was a DJ there, so with me being a dancer I have a bit of a bias, I just had to show off some of my dance moves. Another memorable moment for me was the Round House Music Awards – being in the same room as such talented and inspirational people, who were winning awards for all these amazing things they’ve done, it’s really motivating and makes me want to push to be even better and do more than I’m doing now.
What keeps you motivated?
Honestly, it’s the type of jobs that Elevate provide, they have some amazing brands that they connect me with. Every job I’ve done has been very fun to work on and the more events you do, you start to see familiar faces that you build a rapport with so it’s never really a dull moment! The people, including all the field staff and Team Leaders, are always so friendly.
