— What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
I was engaged in handling and participated in the Junior Handling Competition in Germany. In fact, I am a great handler now!
— What’s something you are self-conscious about?
Let me think… As a child, I had very thick eyebrows and classmates teased me which hurt me back then. As I grew older I realized that I have beautiful eyebrows!
— Who is your favorite entertainer?
I love music, mostly foreign rap and my favorite artist is probably Juice WRLD.

— What is something you wish you knew more about?
Human beings. I can’t remember ever fully understanding myself let alone another person but I feel like it’s the kind of knowledge we should all strive for. If we understand each other then maybe, just maybe, we can come together and survive the extreme times ahead of us.
— Who is someone you admire and why?
Now this is easy: my mum. She is the strongest person I have ever come across and I really just strive to put in the same effort and love into everything I do. My mum was a single mother raising myself and my older sister while working full time to support us and studying to fulfill her dream to become a psychologist. Watching my mom achieve against all speed bumps gave me a fire inside that reminds me that you’re the only person holding you back from being everything you dreamed of and more.
— How and when did you become a model?
I had just moved to London and wasn’t really sure what my path had in store for me. Then out of the blue one day, while I was at work, Patrick (my beautiful mother agent) pulled me to the side and convinced me to give the model world a try. I’m so glad I did. My world has changed into a crazy cluster of opportunity and experience.
