Early life[edit]

Born in Tweed Heads, New South Wales, Harris grew up in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales.[1] Her mother is an Indigenous Australian member of the Stolen Generations, originally of the Dunghutti tribe, and her father is of German-English descent. She attended Tweed River High School.[2] She currently lives in Sydney.[3]


Harris featured prominently during Australian Fashion Week 2010 where she appeared in a record number of shows. She also appeared in a photoshoot for the label Miu Miu in the March 2010 edition of Australian Vogue, and featured on the June 2010 cover of the same magazine.[4][5] At age 11, she won the "Girlfriend Covergirl" competition, stating that a modeling career at a young age is not a problem and that she is of the opinion that it is fine if they have good management and they are considerate of how young the girl is[6][7]

In January 2011, Harris was named a "young women's fashion ambassador" for Australian department store, David Jones.[8] Along with Miranda Kerr and Megan Gale, Harris was part of the store's television and print campaign for the Spring/Summer 2011/12 season.[9]

Harris was a contestant in the fifteenth season of Dancing with the Stars.[10]
