Miranda Kerr was born in the small Australian country town of Gunnedah.
Whether it was climbing trees, riding horses or swimming in the river, Miranda spent much of her childhood outdoors and carefree.
Miranda's introduction to modelling came unexpectedly at the age of 13 after a friend entered her in the Dolly magazine modelling competition, which she won.
After completing her studies she was able to focus on modelling full time and it wasn't long before her bags were packed and she embarked on the international modelling scene. Today Miranda is one of the world's most successful models, an international business owner, author and a very proud mother.
Her decade long career as a model has consisted of a mix of high profile runway shows, fashion and beauty shoots and television and print advertising for exclusive brands such as Prada, Jil Sander and Balenciaga. Miranda was the first Australian to be given the coveted title of a "Victoria's Secret Angel" and has graced the covers of international magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, GQ, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone.
Miranda's passion for charity has seen her donate her time and lend her image to causes such as Kids Helpline, The Koala Foundation and Earth Hour. Miranda is an advocate for all things natural, healthy and organic. She believes that every individual has a role to play in protecting the planet for future generations and adopts sustainability practices in her everyday life.
In 2009 Miranda launched KORA Organics: a range of skincare, 100% Australian made with each product offering a unique blend of essential oils, natural and certified organic ingredients.
KORA Organics is Miranda's own company and her dream come true. In conjunction with some of Australia's most renowned organic chemists and aromatherapists, Miranda created KORA Organics.
All of KORA Organics products are fully Certified Organic through Eco-Cert and OFC. KORA Organics By Miranda Kerr is not just a skincare – it is a lifestyle choice and is fast becoming a community dedicated to the promotion of all things natural, certified organic, sustainable, spiritual and healthy. The range inspires people globally to nurture their bodies, embrace their unique beauty and discover the many benefits of using certified organic skincare.
In September 2010, Miranda released her debut book: Treasure Yourself with an aim to encourage young women to embrace their individuality and listen to their hearts. Treasure Yourself has been consistently on the best sellers list of books in Australia and is now being translated into 9 different languages. In September 2011, Treasure Yourself was selected as one of the top 50 books in Australia under the Australian Governments "Get Reading Initiative" program. This was a huge honour for a first time author.
When asked what her greatest achievement is to date Miranda answers with true certainty "Becoming a mother."
