When I say that I am Brazilian! People always think that Brazilians have dark skin, hair, and eyes, but there are many different ethnic groups in my country.

— An issue or cause you are passionate about?

We’re living on this planet as if there is another place to go if everything will be destroyed. But there is no plan(et) B. Forest plays a key role in balancing the climate on our planet and in our lives. We cannot close the eyes to what is happening in the Amazon rainforest. #todospelaamazonia

I like to eat first the sweet and after the salt food. I took part in the music video of a very famous Turkish pop singer. I strongly believe in karma. Everything I do and you do will someday come back.

Mathieu

Who:

Mathieu Zang, 184 cm / 6’0.5″, French, born April 9th.

We Asked:

— Who is someone you admire and why?

I am in admiration for my parents, Zhang ChaoLong and Liu Wei Wei, because they are from China and they came to France to start a business. When they first started it was really hard because they did know how to speak French and the French people were laughing about them because they were Asian. I respect my parents because they’ve got a really hard past but now they have succeeded in their lives. I’m so proud of this and I want to accomplish great things to make them proud of me.

— Among your friends or family, what are you famous for?

I am famous for taking care of people around me. I am also famous for being polite with everyone and funny, I think.

— How and when did you become a model?

It was the holiday All Saints Day, I was walking in the street with one of my best friends around the 15th district of Paris when suddenly 2 guys, Alice and Maximilian from Elite, caught me at the exit of the Uniqlo store. They told me “You look like a model, we think that you’ve got all the characteristics for our agency.” And I was thinking, “No, it’s not possible, that’s a joke, right?” They told me to send them an email if I was interested. I was so excited. The next day I was talking with one of my friends who is model and he told me to go into the agency to introduce myself. I didn’t think it was polite to do this, I was so shy and so scared I would do something wrong. He finally convinced me to go in to meet them. At 3pm we went to the agency together and I met all the agents from the men’s division, they were so nice! They told me they would call me the next week if they wanted to sign me but 5 mins later they called me to come back. When I went back all the agents stood up and applauded me and said, “Congratulations! We will sign you!”  That was one of the best days of my life.
