Limousines, nights out at top Lnodon clubs and even a little celeb-spotting - this is a girl who definitely likes to party! It sounds like she's already enjoying the high life of a famous model, so could she turn fantasy into reality?





Occupation:Credit controller

Disability:No left forearm

The story

Kelly lives with her mum in her hometown of Enfield. She's very family-oriented, and particulary dotes on her niece and two young nephews.

Kelly was born without a left forearm, a fact that only ever bothers her when trying to cut an especially tough bit of meat during dinner. When she was eight years old, she made a conscious decision not to wear a prosthetic arm, as she doesn't like them.

Kelly is the quintessential party girl. Favourite entertainment for a wild Friday night is usually a warehouse rave, where she loves to rave to drum 'n' bass with her DJ and MC friends. But for an extra special night out, it's the West End and a limo ...

When she's not partying, Kelly likes to take time out to write poetry, as it allows her to express herself more deeply. Not something you'd imagine your average credit controller in an accounts department doing! However, she's more than ready to give up her post for a career in modelling.

The skills

Kelly is new to this modelling lark, but she's got the looks and she loves being in front of the camera.

She's a tough nut too, thanks to growing up in a household with two older brothers and her dad. So she's more than ready for the challenges that await her.

The attitude

Cheerful - Kelly describes herself as a happy-go-lucky kind of girl, and her mates all agree.

Self-confident - Kelly is entirely comfortable in her own skin. Having one arm is normal for her, so she neither notices or cares about any funny looks she might receive.

Quirky - Kelly is into psychology, astrology and spirituality. She's also fascinated by the idea of aliens in outer space.
