In our never ending quest for fabulous fresh faces, our photographer Mark Rabadan shot London-based model Alewya Demmisse. We chatted with her about getting discovered and living it up in London town.

How were you discovered?

A friend of mine who also happened to be a model with Storm, suggested I try modeling and so a couple of weeks [later] I went into their office to meet the agents there and they signed me immediately. The rest as they say, is history.
