5 Minutes with Our 915 Model Nicole Gyasi

by Emma Menteath, Editorial Lead

We spent 5 minutes catching up with 13-year-old Nicole Gyasi after our Back to School
shoot and we were surprised to discover that it was Nicole’s very first shoot as a teen model! It makes sense that she has an affinity for drama class and aspires to pursue a career in acting one day.

Nicole has grown up with 3 sisters, a brother and her pet pup called Patch. She tells us he’s a Yorkshire terrier. When Nicole isn’t rehearsing lines in drama class, you’ll find her watching football or devouring a new novel.

Here’s what else we learnt about Nicole when we caught up with her…
