Place of Origin:
Gothenburg, Sweden

Ethnic Origin:
Both of my parents are Swedish.


How discovered:
I was actually discovered on a bus on my way home from school in Gothenburg. It was a female model that came up to me. She told me that I just had to meet her agency, so she wrote down their number and her name on a little receipt from a chocolate factory, and we said goodbye. A few weeks later I became brave enough to go and see the agency. I was so happy and grateful when they let me in to their family, and today it’s the same agency who I am working with now.

Favorite things:
Oh I’m a true horse lover! I have ridden horses since I was a little girl. I love to compete and to spend my time with them and my friends in the stable, it makes me relaxed. That is absolutely one thing I can’t live without.

Favorite music, band:
I always listen to music. On my way to school or the stable, there is always music in my ears. When I was younger I used to listen to Michael Jackson, a lot! Nowadays I really love deep house such as RnB music. One of my favorite artists is Rihanna, but I really like musicians like 50 Cent, Avicii and Broiler.

Favorite movie, tv show:
I haven’t seen many films in my life, I just noticed that it was actually fun to watch movies with my boyfriend, friends or family. But I really like action films, like the Fast and Furious movies or the latest movies the Maze Runner or Lucy.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
One of my favorite designers is Michael Kors, I’m a true fan of his bags and wallets in particular. I’m also very much in love with the products from Gucci, Chanel, Burberry such as Hugo Boss and many more, especially the perfumes. I think my signature fragrance is just Boss Jour, it feels like I wear it almost every day. When it comes to my skin, I want to keep it natural as far as I possibly can, but I have to admit that I can’t live without my cleansing cream from The Body Shop.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I guess I would just keep studying and continue to do my job with younger children on the stable. I would also hang out with my friends, family and boyfriend. I am interested to study law in the future, so I think I will be focused to get good grades in my last year of high school.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
This one was too hard. I just love to spend my time with my horse.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
My favorite modeling experience so far is probably the photoshoot I did this summer when I went to Denmark to shoot with an amazing photographer. This photoshoot was one of my favorites because the whole team was so much fun, everyone was so determined to take great pictures and everybody was professional. We simply had a great time enjoying our work with each other.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The best thing about my hometown Gothenburg is that you can feel the specific Gothenburg sense of humor in the air. I love everybody in this city, everyone here are very open minded, I love that quality of people.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would be very exited and happy if I will get the opportunity to work with all sorts of big brands. My biggest dream though is to work for Gucci or Burberry. I’m just totally in love with their brands. But in the end, the most important thing for me is to thrive with your coworkers.

Place you would love to visit:
Oh I really want to visit Santorini in Greece at some point in my life. I mean, the white beaches, the weather and food, and the pretty houses with blue rooftops, it couldn’t be any better according to me.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Currently I’m very obsessed about music in all sorts, I feel like I’m listening to music no matter what I do. It really makes me happy.
