WELCOME MODEL & WRITER; FELICITY PEEL
I am so excited to be August’s guest blogger for THE 4 OF US. These three women do great things with the blog and I am grateful to be a part of it for a short while.
A little bit about me… my name is Felicity and I graduated with a degree in Theology from Manchester University 5 years ago. Shortly after that, I got scouted at Glastonbury and I have been modelling on and off since then. I have been very fortunate to travel the world with my career and had some amazing jobs with clients like M&S, Barbour and Sweaty Betty. But, while modelling has given me so much, it has not always been easy. When you are busy, it is the best job in the world, when you have a quiet month, it is very easy to feel like giving up.
Having taken a year out to work in the marketing department for Cancer Research UK, I now try to combine modelling with other projects, such as writing or organising events, since variety keeps me happy! Over the past few years, I have reviewed theatre for an online magazine, Everything Theatre, and started writing for a blog, www.readunwritten.com. I have also recently got involved in organising a music event in Shoreditch called Palooza, with my boyfriend and best mate. It is really important to have projects like these that I have a certain amount of control over since models have very little control over their careers.
I really love living in different cities. This is a MAJOR perk of being a model. I have actually just moved back to London from Hamburg, where my mother agency, Louisa, is based, and my boyfriend and I are hoping to move to Cape Town after the summer.
I am not quite sure what you can expect from me over the next month. I am hoping to do a post about music, perhaps something around mental health, or even my love affair with boxing (I had my first fight back in November - and it was amazing!) Whatever I write, I hope you find it interesting.
See you back here very soon! F xxx
