Daily Duo: Meet Stella & Michael

Stella

Who:

Stella Kippe, 178 cm / 5’10”, German, born December 28th.

We Asked:

How and when did you become a model?
“A couple months ago I had to write a really important essay. After a couple of sleepless nights I once again decided to go to the public library to get a specific book. It was only available at one I have never been before. Just minutes after I arrived there I was scouted by my mother agency. If it wasn’t for this one book I probably would have never met my future booker Ruhama Negassi.”

What were you doing before answering these questions and what will you be doing after?
“Before answering these questions I drank a glass of oat milk while dancing to really loud music and cleaning my room. Afterwards, I will get ready for the pride parade which means I will most likely just bathe myself in glitter. I love how Berlin gets together once a year to celebrate love and equality. You can feel this amazing vibe throughout the whole city.”

What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
“I am secretly obsessed with memes and tag my friends in 20+ pictures a day. Thankfully, we share the same weird humor so they don’t mind. I used to have my very own meme account on Instagram but after I spent even more time looking for funny stuff I decided to give it up.”

Michael

Who:

Michael Chima, 190 cm / 6’3″, Nigerian, born May 10th.

We Asked:

What were you doing before answering these questions and what will you be doing after?
“I was watching Vogue 73 questions with Donatella Versace on YouTube and after these questions I will go back to learn how to pronounce VERSACE.”

How and when did you become a model?
“I always wanted to be like my elder brother who is a model and in 2017, when I was walking on the street of Ikoyi in Lagos, the owner of MyBooker Model, the agency I am signed to, saw me and that’s the story. He signed me at the spot since it was close to agency office. ”

What have you learned since you started modeling?
“I have learnt that you don’t rush greatness and the modeling world is diverse enough for everyone.”
