Beauty

Who:

Thet Thet “Beauty” Thinn, 175 cm / 5’9″, Burmese, born April 19th .

We Asked:

What did you Google last?
“I last googled a client that I am working for tomorrow. Being from Myanmar and leaving Asia for the first time to model I am trying to learn as many international designers and brands as I can. Sometimes I don’t realise how big a client can be so I try to research in advance.”

What is an issue or cause you are passionate about?
“I really love kids and when I am home I like to volunteer for the child orphans. I enjoy helping kids study in my country. Educating the children is so important for the future.”

What’s something you are self-conscious about?
“When I was growing up I was really self-conscious about my height and big lips. It is something I have started to love about myself and my lips have even helped me book Sephora Lipstick campaign for Asia.”

Benji

Who:

Benji Arvay, 189 cm / 6’2.5″, Slovakian, born October 25th.

We Asked:

How and when did you become a model?
“I was walking down the street in Prague, where I study and live, when all of a sudden I was approached by a scout from my (now) Mother Agency. He said I looked like I could do modelling, which surprised me because I had never thought about something like modelling. So after a couple of minutes of convincing me, he handed me his card and a couple of days later I called him, and here I am today :)”

Who is someone you admire and why?
“My biggest role model is my dad Peter. A charming tall man in his 50’s that is always there for his family and makes my mum smile! I know I can rely on him 100% and he sets an example for all men around the world!”

What tips or tricks have you picked up from modelling/the fashion industry?
“The biggest tip I have learned so far is to really believe in yourself and to keep a positive mindset because if you don’t believe in yourself, who will?”
