— What is something you wish you knew more about?
I can’t just limit myself on one thing because there are so many things I want to learn and know. But right now I’m focusing on languages. I’m currently learning Russian and French. I also want to learn how to sew, how to play the piano and sign language. And many, many other things.

— Amongst your family what are you famous for?
I think for making spontaneous decisions. For example, I cut my hair in the middle of the night because I felt like it. Or shortly after I turned 17, I spontaneously booked a flight to Norway and spend 2 weeks in Oslo on my own.

— How and when did you become a model?
It all started in 2019 when a young creative called Armin Sousu Rafili spotted me in the streets of Innsbruck and wrote me later on Instagram, asking if I wanted to be part of a small fashion show. Afterwards I did a few small things in Innsbruck and a year later Andreas Kranebitter, my now agent, wrote to me on Instagram and got me big modeling jobs pretty fast.

— The best and worst aspects of your personality:
The best aspect of my personality is that I’m very helpful to others and kind. Most people I know good, would describe me like this. When someone is in need of help, I’m always there for them. The worst aspect of my personality is that I’m quite shy. Usually, this is only in the beginning when I just met someone. After getting to know someone, I become very open to them and have fun times with them.

— Who is your favourite entertainer?
My favourite entertainer is Daniel Caesar. He is a Canadian singer-songwriter. He usually writes songs in the genre R&B, which I like a lot. His songs are very relaxing and I enjoy listening to his voice. My favourite song of his is Get You. This song is very relaxing and it is a song of praise to a love that he feels he didn’t deserve.

— Who is someone you admire and why?
I admire my mother the most in this whole world. She is the most important person in my life and she has been through a lot and I desire to be as good as she is. She always helps me with anything and tried to give me everything I needed when growing up, even when times were tough.

My mom because she was able to get her doctoral degree and start her own business as a chiropractor, so I believe she is living the American dream.

— Who is your favorite entertainer?
My favorite entertainer is Leonardo DiCaprio. From his early career, he was able to take on serious roles and almost 25 years later he continues to amaze me. His pure talent, his ability and his range are what make him one of the greatest American actors and pop icons, along with his involvement as an activist and philanthropist.
