Who:
Sihaya Kayum, 178 cm / 5’10”, British, born June 30th.

Where:
IMM Models (London – mother agency)

— Among your friends or family, what are you famous for?
I think that everyone who meets me will learn very quickly that I am super forgetful and easily distracted. There have been so many times where I’ve left important things in silly places, for example, I left my phone on a bus when I was in Japan – luckily I managed to get it back after a couple of days! I also left my purse on a train platform when I was in Europe travelling to another country. Thankfully I have friends who are always looking out for me and forgetfulness so most of the things I lose have a way of coming back to me!

— Who is your favourite entertainer and why?
My favourite famous person is David Attenborough. I grew up watching his documentaries and I’ve watched every episode he’s made at least once. He’s done so much to bring attention to the effects of climate change on animals and the ecosystem in the past decade or so and I don’t think anyone could have done that in a more humbling and compelling way. I think he’s very inspiring, teaching kids to respect the planet we live on and the life that is around us. If you’re ever bored just stick on some David Attenborough and you can chill out and feel inspired all at the same time! :)

— Your most embarrassing moment:
Weirdly I don’t get embarrassed very easily at all anymore. I think it might be because my mum has always been quite eccentric, she has never tried to dull herself down or change her behaviour even if I found it embarrassing when I was younger. I guess this taught me that it doesn’t really matter how other people perceive you as long as you are happy with who you are. 


Kevin

Who:
Kevin Yamoah, 188 cm / 6’2″, Swedish, born September 13th.

Where:
Lind Models (Gothenburg – mother agency)

— What are three interesting facts about you?
1. I love playing and watching football/soccer, I actually play football now too.
2. I’ve grown up in Ghana also, lived in Kumasi for 2 years when I was a kid. It was a great experience for me and my younger brothers, to get to know our ethnicity, also the community, and people’s mentality. I went to school there as well. I really understood the difference between Sweden and Ghana, which made me the person I am today.
3. Sometimes I watch anime series like DragonBall, One Piece, and Naruto. Fun fact is that I had Goku from DragonBall as a role model when I was young and used to always imagine myself making the impossible possible like he did many times in the series. Now, I really like characters like Doflamingo in One Piece, I think he’s a cool villain, hahaha. 

— One thing people may be surprised to find out about you:
I like to be alone. I don’t know if is a good thing or a bad thing, but I reflect and think a lot. I even consider traveling alone to more exotic places in the world, to explore different cultures, languages, nature, and more.

— Your most embarrassing moment:
I have a lot of embarrassing moments in my life, hahaha! But one time, when I thought I was ready to run in to play a futsal game when I was a kid, I forgot to put my shorts on and ran out to the pitch. The crowd and even my coach was like, “Get off the field right now!” and I didn’t understand until I looked down and then ran back to the locker room faster than fast…


Dana

Who:
Dana Feijen, 178 cm / 5’10”, Dutch, born December 18th.

Where:
New Generation Model Management (The Netherlands – mother agency)

— The best and worst aspects of your personality:
I have a very strong personality. This can be both negative and positive. Because of my strong will, I can get so caught up in something that I basically neglect my family, friends, and myself. If I put my mind to something I will fight for it until I reached my goals even if that isn’t “healthy” anymore.

— An issue or cause you are passionate about:
Injustice has always been something that triggered me enormously. A very explicit form of hierarchy is not acceptable to me. I think that’s because I’ve been raised with the idea that everyone is equal to one another. I always treat someone the way I would love to be treated with lots of respect, love and equality. No matter where you’re from, what your beliefs are, or who you love. I know that there is a lot of injustice in this world these days. But by remembering that everyone is the same and equal to one another, we can make this world a better place.

— Among your friends or family, what are you famous for?
My friends and family definitely see me as a “doorzetter”. This is Dutch for a person with a very strong will and perseverance. I’m aware of the fact that I need to work extremely hard if I want to accomplish something in life. That’s exactly the reason why I’m sitting here, writing this. Only the sun comes up and gets down on its own, the rest you got to do yourself.


Donovan

Who:
Donovan Wildfong, 186 cm / 6’1″, American, born November 8th.

Where:

— Who is someone you admire and why?
I admire my parents more than anyone in this whole world, they put every single one of us kids first and did everything in their power to make sure we were happy and loved and had a great childhood. We didn’t have a lot of money growing up but that didn’t stop my parents from making sure all 7 of us were having a great time and being ourselves. They are everything to me and I would not be the person I am right now without the constant support from my awesome parents. Love you Mom and Dad <3

— What are three interesting facts about you?
So 3 interesting facts about me would have to be: I write and record a bunch of music in my bedroom and play in 4 different bands. But that’s not all: I play a different instrument in each band. The second fact is I have 7 full-blood brothers and sisters and it’s so awesome, they are all the best. And lastly, I am deathly afraid of the ocean but have lived in a beach town my entire life. I can stand on the sand and put my feet in but let me tell you I’m never not stressed out about it.

— Something you are self-conscious about:
Okay, I hate to put this into the world but I am definitely most self-conscious about the size of my nipples, LOL, they are just too small.
