Social media takes Riaz from Sarina to Hong Kong in style

RIAZ Vickers never thought about a career in the modelling world.

But when the former Sarina resident was scouted by a modelling agency, she thought she'd give it a go.

And go she has, with her career taking her across Australia and overseas.

It is a far cry from what she had planned when she finished school.

Scouted from photos on social media, she attended a trial in Melbourne and was then asked to come back after she had finished school.

Riaz has spent the past three months in Hong Kong modelling for magazines, catalogues and campaigns.

"Modelling in Hong Kong was amazing and I really hope I can work in many more amazing countries."
