Ever since NZ-born Aisha Jade McKinnon graced us with her presence on Big Brother Australia 2014, we haven’t been able to get enough of the girl and her impeccable style. Her super-sweet freckles, banging’ bod and personable attitude have seen her burst onto the modelling scene, including a fitting gig for Glue Store‘s Winter 2015 collection. We caught up with Aisha to chat about her role for the retailer, because we couldn’t wait to find out more about the budding style icon.

Get to know Aisha by checking out how she answered our quick-fire questions below.
