Find out more about model-to-watch Katie Braatvedt

Name: Katie Braatvedt

Agency: Clyne

Tell me about your hometown:
I'm from Devonport, Auckland. I miss it! It was the most lovely place to grow up! It's quite out of the way so everyone pretty much knows everyone... If you want to do a food shop in less than 30 mins you can forget about it coz you're gonna bump into someone you know on every aisle.

What things are you carrying in your backpack?
My backpack is by Kirsten Woodward. Inside I have my glasses (I'm a bit blind), scroggin, makeup remover, moisturiser, my phone charger and a book. Right now I'm reading The Orphan Master's Son.

Give me a book or film recommendation:
See above! I also recently finished Norwegian Wood by Murakami and loved that.

Can you cook? What's the best thing you can make?
Skip this one, I'm not home enough to cook haha!

If you had the power to change one thing in the world, what would it be?
I wish money were less important. I feel like everything would be better if we placed less emphasis on increasing profit and more on increasing wellbeing.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I don't want to grow up! But I am training to be an architect and I absolutely love it.
