Born and raised in Tahiti, learning to surf and swim before she could even walk.
Hanalei now resides at the Northern Beaches in Sydney with her family, having moved to Australia at
the age of 18 to pursue her studies at university and expand her modelling career. Her most treasured
memory is running naked on the beach in Tahiti with her little brother - sandy, salty and sunburnt.
