Morgan Shelley grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, although she has the fortune to also have an Italian passport. She was scouted by chance at age 12, when she snuck into a water polo match to watch her crush play on the weekend. Since then, she was named the Guess South Africa Brand Ambassador at age 16, with consistent work since then. Her icons are Olivia Culpo and Chrissy Teigen, as they are unapologetic about their success as women and effectively balance their modeling careers with a flourishing personal life.
While modeling, Morgan Shelley also writes for several blogs and frequents art galleries. To stay fit, she loves hot yoga, and is a self-described “foodie”, planning her life around her next exciting meal. Though she does not currently study, she looks forward to studying a variety of subjects from genetics, management, and marketing. Morgan Shelley sees the travel and creativity of modeling as the best parts of her job: she is especially interested in the process of conveying a message to the consumer through modeling.
