Soekie is from the Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire, where she was discovered by agent Bregje Zijlstra at a beauty competition. To our delight Soekie has undergone an extensive makeunder, shedding the heavy makeup and high glitz of the pageant circuit. Now her naturally strong, pure beauty (thanks to her Dutch mother and half Indian father) shines through, especially in her test shots with photographer Richard Bakker. Having recently relocated to The Netherlands, Soekie is a girl going places!

    Very pretty, but she has a funny nose. That’s why she’s almost always shot in profile.

    Modelscout/agent Bregje Zijlstra@Salva Models has a good nose for Beauty’s…
    She’s the one who discoverd model Bregje Heinen before she signed with Micha Models.

    I like how without all the makeup stuff she can look like a regular hot girl but then all the model stuff on she looks all quirky (but still in a good way)

    This is the best one in a long time. Esp. the black & white pics are amazing!

    The pretty one.
    She reminds me the polish actress Anna Cieślak:

    Her perfect face impressed me a lot during this shoot, her eyes talk to the camera, one of those rare occasions that you find such a girl – so young and leaving such an impression, plus that she has a fantastic attitude that will surely help her in this angry world. I am a big fan, rock it girl!

    I like her, though I’m not the greatest fan of her nose… but very interesting and she has a great body!

    I really like her. I love her eyes and she reminds me of Lykke Li. She looks like her too :3

    Hmm. She has a very Slovenian look. She looks alot like me in many ways (I am Slovenian). I am not a fan of her nose. But noses are a very touchy subject in the modelling industry, so she will probably do very well.

    She got the real beauty. she has so much potential. coz she knows how to use her lips and eyes together.

    Like the poleroids with the dark background and hair up very much. In all other pictures I dont see it yet. She’s pretty but I don’t see a standout beauty yet. There is scouting and there is managing, I only hope she will be managed well and get’s a fair chance to a start. I wish her all the best.

    She has the X-factor. Plus: Soekie multi-talented, intelligent, great dancer, quick mind, inventive, super elastic moves ànd… a great sense of humor! She possess an external magnetic field.
