— The most interesting thing about your family?
My dad is a pretty ‘famous’ hairdresser and my parents own, in my opinion, the most beautiful hair salon in the world. I also have a 2 year older brother who I love.

— An issue or cause you are passionate about:
My family and I are really supportive of neglected animals. Actually, my mom even adopted one from Spain, a dog named Eros.

— How and when did you become a model?
I work at my local skate shop in Zwolle called Sparky, and for their Instagram, our boss took pictures of us wearing the clothes. It became a habit that they always asked me to model the clothes because they thought I was best to just stand in front of the camera. After a year (or maybe even longer) of telling me to start modeling, I started doing e-commerce for a webshop called Freshcotton. Those were my first official shoots. Not long after a photographer, and now a good friend of mine, named Rogier Alexander asked me to take some photos together and look for an agency. After my first shoot with him, I really started to like modeling. He introduced me to Matthijs and our connection felt good right away. After signing with Matt my modeling career really started.

— One thing people may be surprised to find out about you:
I love to go to the theatre, it’s my go-to at night. I really don’t mind going by myself if it’s spur of the moment. I’ll wear jeans and when it ends leave immediately.

— What are three interesting facts about you?
1. I like to puzzle. It is probably the neatest game but in my head is a lot of chaos!

2. I love to hang drawings by children on my wall and pictures of people I don’t know but I think the picture is great (you’ll find them at flea markets or in attics).

3. I can juggle.

— The most interesting thing about your family?
I grew up in a very close family which is basically four generations of women and very dear to me.

— Your most embarrassing moment:
A few years ago somebody parked next to me with his car and honked the horn. It was after school, so I was very tired and I instantly thought it was my father coming to pick me up. But then to my surprise when I hopped in the car, a complete stranger was looking at me deep in the eyes and had a shocked expression. I’ve never got out of a car so fast as I did that day.

— Who is your favorite entertainer?
My favourite musician is a rapper who unfortunately died 2yrs ago. His name is XXXTentacion. I admire him because he stood up against racism.

— What are three interesting facts about you?

— What are three interesting facts about you?
1. I love to cook, especially for the ones I love. I think that cooking is a way to demonstrate my love and care, I really put my feelings into it, and apparently, they seem to like it! At the same time, caring about my body while I eat things that I love every day is a way of nourishing myself.
2. The only subject I was good at in school was Math. I was very good, for real! I don’t know why, but it was always super easy for me.
3. My hair was straight when I was a kid, then it started to get very voluminous when I was 10 years old, and when I was 13 it started to get the waves, and now it’s like that!

— What is something you wish you knew more about?
I wish I knew more about the human mind! I think it’s fascinating how each one of us has a whole world inside of our minds, and how it creates our own worlds too! It’s amazing!

— How and when did you become a model?
People always told me I should try to be a model cause I’m very tall and skinny. But I remember watching the Victoria’s Secret shows and wishing I was one of them. I would practice the catwalk in front of the mirror. I became a model by the age of 19, contacting my mother agency, Mix Models Agency, and sending pictures of me. They called me so we could meet, and by the next day, I was in!


Yu

Who:
Yu Souda, 190 cm / 6’3″, Japanese, born August 14th.

Where:
Bravo Models (Tokyo – mother agency)

— Who is someone you admire and why?
My father. Because he is passionate about everything and he never gives up even if he faces any kind of difficulties. To tell you the truth, he was also a model.

— What are three interesting facts about you?
1. I have been playing various sports such as basketball, golf, swimming and karate since I was little. These important experiences have been a great power in many parts of my life.
2. I’ve loved drawing since I was little. Now I’m taking advantage of this, launching my own private brand and designing clothes by myself.
3. My name is Yu. My parents gave me the origin of my name from the word “brave” in kanji. This pronunciation is the same as ”you”. So it doesn’t matter if you call me ”Yu”or ”you”!

— How and when did you become a model?
I had a complex that I am too tall for Japan, because many people looked and laughed at me when I was young. I realized that modeling was the best job for me after I saw some tall and beautiful models in the “DIOR” show 4 years ago. Soon after that, I joined Bravo Models. Now I have confidence and hope thanks to this cool job and Bravo!
