Early life and education
Lawrence was born in Wolverhampton and grew up in Kidderminster, Worcestershire from the age of 6 weeks. Lawrence attended Malvern St James and then Bromsgrove School, was a competitive national swimmer, and was accepted into the UK National Youth Theatre at 15. Her name means 'spark' in most Slavic languages.
Activism and charitable work
Lawrence does not retouch her own images that she posts on social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. She actively criticizes "body shamers", including one user that she confronted in April 2016 on her Instagram account after the user insulted her. She does not want to be classified as a plus-sized model.
In February 2017, Lawrence presented "Ending the pursuit of perfection" at TEDxUniversityofNevada.
In 2019 Lawrence was named in the Forbes 30 Under 30 for Europe within the Art & Culture category  . In their centennial year Malvern St James school recognised Lawrence as one of their Malvern Alumnae 100 "Celebrating the talent and diversity of Malvern Old Girls. Inspiring the women of the future."
