As Love Island 2022 continues to heat up, we've done some digging about Tasha Ghouri, the model turned islander, who's already worked with some major fashion and beauty brands!

Natasha Ghouri or ‘Tasha’ was officially announced as an Islander on May 30th on Instagram and Twitter—but it's actually not the first time our singleton has had a taste of internet fame.

In fact, fans might actually recognize her from even before she made history as Love Island's first-ever deaf contestant...here's everything we know about Tasha's seriously impressive modeling career.

How long has Love Island's Tasha been a model?

23-year-old Tasha is a dancer and model but let slip during a date with new bombshell Charlie, that modeling takes up most of her time—revealing that she's been in the industry for about a year.

Despite being relatively new to modeling, Tasha's portfolio is pretty damn impressive. Some fans may remember her as the model that went viral in 2021 after being featured on ASOS' website and displaying her cochlear implant.

For those who don't know, Tasha was actually born deaf but uses a cochlear implant and has been praised for her inspiring openness around her hearing difficulties.

Tasha has also modeled for the likes of Mark Hill, Boux Avenue and is represented by Off Limits Entertainment—so it's safe to say her modeling resume is only set to grow following her stint on Love Island!

What is a Cochlear implant? 

Tasha’s cochlear implant provides a sensation of hearing for those who suffer from severe or profound deafness. A cochlear implant works differently from a hearing aid and provides more assistance.

As the NHS (opens in new tab) explains, it works with two parts—one goes in the ear like a standard hearing aid and the other clips on the outside of the ear. The implant then sends electrical signals and directly stimulates the auditory nerve to give the sensations of sound.

Right now, Tasha has already made one connection in the villa with Andrew—but it looks like trouble might be brewing with the arrival of Charlie. Here's where to catch up and watch Love Island 2022 UK to follow Tasha on her hunt for love!
