What are you very good at OR what do you wish you were better at?
“I would do nearly anything to be good at singing. I just want to be that person with a guitar and a really good voice.”

How and when did you become a model?
“I got scouted at a shopping mall in Sweden when I was twelve. At that time I didn’t really know that you could work as a model and I had no interest in fashion. But a friend of mine really wanted to watch the model competition that was held in the mall. We watched it for a few minutes, then one of the judges came down from the stage. She is now my agent at my mother agency.”

What are your interests/favorite things?
“I am really interested in photography and I would love to work as a photographer. I like to express my thoughts through art, I think it’s much easier than talking about them.”

We Asked:

How and when did you become a model?
“My friends and I were visiting and discovering Amsterdam for the very first time in June this year.

Two days after I met Riccardo Tisci in London and I heard I was confirmed for the Burberry show.”

What are you very good at OR what do you wish you were better at?
“My dream is to become really good at extreme sports such as snowboarding/skiing and water sports (Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Wake-boarding). For me, life without these things is boring – adrenaline makes me feel alive!”
