Savy Monroe only recently celebrated her seventh birthday but already she has done more than some aspiring models might hope to achieve in their entire career.



The Californian, whose full name is Savy Monroe Stenberg, has already starred in a music video for Sia, been watched by hundreds of millions online, and featured in campaigns for major fashion brand H&M.

In the 18 months that she has been working professionally, Savy has also modelled for Lucky Brand Jeans, Lands' End, Mini Boden, Peek Kids and Maddie Ziegler's brand Maddie Style.


Excited for a busy week and wishing @thetonyabrewer got me ready everyday! 💫😉

Despite her modelling and dancing talents, Savy's mother Susie Stenberg, 35, said her daughter has received no formal training.

Susie, who works as a manager to Savy and her husband Jeremy, who is a professional dirt bike rider, told Daily Mail Online: "She loves modelling, she's getting ready to start acting and she wants to be a dancer.

"She just loves entertaining and people watching her ... She would eventually love to do runway modelling. Basically anything involving a stage."

The opportunity to dance in Sia's The Greatest video, which to date has been viewed more than 300 million times on YouTube, came about through a family friend,Tonya Brewer, who is a make-up artist to the singer.

Susie, who has two other children, Sayler, four, and Katrina, 16, with her husband, said Savy knew she wanted to be a model from the tender age of three.

"When she was three she started asking to be a model. We were just kind of amazed that she even knew what that was.

"We just kept telling her 'no, you don't know what you're talking about'. We don't have any models or anything like that in the family so we weren't sure where all that was coming from," Susie said.

But Savy would not give up and kept telling her parents that she wanted to be a model until her fixation became so intense that they had to hide all catalogues and magazines from their daughter.


Susie said: "She would start crying and say it wasn't fair that they [children featured in catalogs] got to do it."

When she was five-and-a-half, Savy was still begging her parents to let her model so Susie decided to contact some modelling agencies.

In the first week of being signed to Zuri Model and Talent Savy was booked by Lucky Brand Jeans and her second ever audition was for H&M - with whom she has since worked on four campaigns for.

Savy, who goes to a private school, has over 16,000 followers on Instagram which features pictures of Savy striking poses on set and videos of her dancing.

A recent photograph shows her looking elated while hugging 14-year-old dancer, actress and model Maddie Ziegler, who has become a friend.

Susie said: "She just loves Maddie. She looks up to Maddie."
