The 32-year-old model, who graced the June 2022 cover of Vogue Arabia, has previously said that her Australian, Lithuanian, and Pakistani background made her an outlier. “I have a diverse ethnic background — it wasn’t accepted or recognized in the modeling industry, which still had to make a lot of changes and celebrate diversity.
