Sofia Sanoh

My mother agency is Scoop Models (Copenhagen), FM Agency (London) and Women Management (New York), Women Management Paris (Paris), and Women Milan (Milan)


178cm (5’10”)

Place of Origin:
Odense, Denmark

Ethnic Origin:
My mom is from Lithuania and my dad is from Ivory Coast


How discovered:
I got scouted from different agencies in Denmark, so I decided to visit all the best agencies in Denmark and chose my lovely agency Scoopmodels. I’m so happy for my decision!

Favorite things:
People buy so many things they don’t need, I do it myself. I can live without any material thing if I wanted that, although it would be difficult in the start. For me, the most important thing you can have in life is love and happiness.

Favorite music, band:
Omg, there is so much music that I like, especially deep house, R&B and hiphop. The genre depends on the mood. I can quickly get tired of all the pop music that repeats in the radio all day long. However, there are three stars I can listen to over and over again and it is Beyonce, Sam Smith and Sia. They all three have the most amazing voices!

Favorite movie, tv show:
My favorite movie is The PURSUIT of HAPPYNESS, for sure! Not only that Will Smith is a fantastic actor and that his son is sooooo cute, the movie is about a big dream coming true! I’m a girl who believes in dreams, so the movie hit me the very first time I saw it. My favorite TV series must be Pretty Little Liars. When I first start watching a series, I get so caught (almost addicted) to it, that I choose it above everything, until I have seen all sections! So I’m afraid of TV series, haha.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I loooove Christian Dior, Tom Ford, Karl Lagerfeld, Tommy Hilfinger and Marc Jacobs. They are so talented!

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I weren’t modeling I would help other people with their mental disorders and coach them through their most difficult times. I have always been interested in psychology and every time I learn to know a person, I automatically think about how the person became who they are.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I don’t know if I am ready to tell it, buuuuuuuuuut I looove mayonnaise and different types of dressing, and there can never be to much of it in my food. #Healthylifestyle

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I went for a shoot in New York, where I got the chance to dance modern ballet to a Beyonce playlist. It was soooo fun and the pictures was very nice.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I love to come home to Odense, where the atmosphere is very great and I feel like I know everybody (which I don’t).

Which brand would you really love to model for?
It could be sooo nice to do campaigns for Chanel, Dior and Armani. I also always had a dream about making a big cosmetic and perfume campaign. But my dream client is Victoria’s Secret!

Place you would love to visit:
There are so many places I want to visit, for example Hawaii, Columbia and Sydney (I could go on and on). I just love to travel and experience new cultures!

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I looove yoga, specially heatwave yoga because it’s so good for your skin, health and mind + it makes you happier!
