Derbhilia was born in Ireland in a small town called Castlecomer just on the outskirts of Kilkenny which is situated in the south east of the country. She moved to Vancouver in 2014 just after finishing her 4 year college degree in Humanities.
Derbhilia always wanted to travel and see the world and she got that chance in Vancouver. In the summer of 2014 she was signed to John Casablanca’s International Modelling agency. Since then she has worked in runway shows such as the ‘Love Her’ event in the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel, John Casablanca Institute fashion shows and Vetrina boutique shows. However, her main achievement was getting picked to present the winning trophies at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, walking before 50,000 people at BC place was an amazing experience.
In her spare time she loves to hit the gym and get involved in the classes. She takes a couple of fitness classes during the week to unwind from her busy schedule at work, exercise has always been a key importance to her as it has so much benefits not just physically but mentally too.
