Model Citizen: Grace O’Farrell

Grace O’Farrell started modelling and acting when she was 10 years old and living in Toronto. She was featured in print and online ad campaigns for The Bay, Sears and Winners. In addition to modelling, Grace danced with the National Ballet for six years. She was also the lead in a music video for “Parachute” by Otto Knows. After moving to Peterborough in 2014, Grace signed up for STRUTT modelling camps, and designed outfits and modelled in two Wearable Arts shows. In 2016, she signed with STRUTT and has since landed commercials for both Family Channel and Kids Help Phone and a short film called “Silly Fox,” filmed in Peterborough. Because of her love of the arts, Grace applied for and got accepted into the Integrated Arts Program (Visual Arts) at Thomas A. Stewart (TAS), where she is an honour roll student and has just completed Grade 9. In her spare time, Grace plays the piano and is a competitive rower with TAS and the Peterborough Rowing Club. Grace was recently featured in a runway show in Toronto for Aveda, and is looking forward to continuing her modelling and runway work with STRUTT.
