'Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model' contestant Lisa Madden feels "comfortable" in her own skin.
The 19-year-old model from Cork, Ireland, was eliminated from the show last night (24.09.12) but said the competition taught her some valuable lessons.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "With modelling you don't have age on your side you know, and I think now is my time to kind of do this.
"I'm really passionate about it and I loved my experience on the show. It's kind of forced me to want it even more. Now is my time to do all of this.
"The competition really taught me, 'Just be comfortable in your skin.' To me that's a huge lesson."
Yesterday's episode saw the girls take to the street in on Toronto's stylish Yorkville Avenue, Canada for a street style challenge and a photoshoot in the beautiful area of Muskoka, where Lisa didn't shine as much as she did in previous shoots.
She was thrilled to have made it so far though, saying: "It was so good - absolutely fantastic. Coming into it I never ever thought I would get past the first stage.
"I remember packing my suitcase, and I always pack really light because I never ever thought that I would come as far as I did. So I'm so happy and so proud."
When asked who her favourite judge was she was quick to respond: "I love Whitney! I really do. She's a genuine nice girl. For me meeting her was a huge big deal."
Three remain on the SkyLiving show: Anita Kaushik, Emma Grattidge and Letitia Herod.
