Who:

Wendel Chenkel, 187 cm / 6’1.5″, Brazilian, born October 10th.

Why:

Never one to shirk hard work, Brazilian boy-meets-man Wendel has been working alongside his carpenter father since the tender age of 10. Convinced by others to become a model (he says he has never considered himself to be pretty), it is as though Wendel was honed for high fashion. Scouted in July 2016 and now balancing modelling with carpentry, there’s strong international agency interest in Wendel, and we suspect this fashion apprentice will soon turn master.

We Asked:

What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
“Although I seem to be a serious guy, I am a spontaneous person, and very fun, I like to make new friends and I really like to talk! Of course I’m great at fixing things!”
