Full Name: Codie Louise Young
Birth date: 1st November 1992
Birth place: Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia
Ethnic origin: Pretty much everything (like most Australians), have some Irish, Scottish, a bit of French, English as well a bunch of others haha
Nickname: I suppose my nickname would be Cardi – not by choice though haha
Where were you scouted? In a local shopping center in Australia
Best features: Known for my big eyes and long neck
Favourite beauty product: I love the brand ‘Simple’ really good for sensitive skin
Favourite movie: It’s hard to pick one! I love all Tim Burton’s movies. I love Alice In Wonderland as well, especially the originals in black and white
What’s on your ipod: Bon Jovi, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Lady Gaga, The Kooks, 660, Ben Lee, Guns & Roses, JET, The Animals, Joan Armatrading, Sara Bareilles. As well as a bunch of other stuff haha I really like everything – a big variety is always good.
Guilty pleasure: Lollies (candy), but also doing nothing. I like my own company and tend to spend too much time by myself because of it!
Dislike: I hate peas! Also don’t like spiders or snakes eeekk
Dream country to visit: Now this is a hard question to answer!! I really want to travel, and yes I travel with work but I want to travel like a tourist and go to really amazing place. I can’t pick a country as such but a few of my top to go places would be Machu Picchu, Victoria Falls. But I also want to go to China and Ireland… Actually I pretty much want to go everywhere.
What was the last thing to make you laugh out loud: Hahahaha. Yesterday my 2 Kiwi friends showed me this Kiwi tv commercial about drink driving (its called Legend) which was hysterical. Then we sat and watched news reporter bloopers and Japanese game show bloopers for a couple hours, was so funny haha.
What was the last dream you remember? There is this cartoon called Avatar the Last Airbender (one of my favourite shows!!!!!) and in the show there are different tribes and they control the elements like earth fire etc. Well the last dream I had was about the show and I had the ability to control the elements was pretty cool! Then I woke up and was pretty gutted! haha
One word to describe yourself: Different
