Place of Origin:
I was scouted at the Danish music festival Roskilde Festival in the summer of 2015. I had just taken my first bath in 5 days so I was feeling goooood.
I love to create something in all forms – cooking, art, clothing etc.
Favorite music, band:
It really depends on my mood and the circumstances. But I can always listen to the laid back, psychedelic sound of Connan Mockasin or dreamy Beach House. I also have a soft spot for electronica like Grimes and Crystal Castles – very aesthetic music!! My guilty pleasure, however, is r’n’b and rap from the 00’s like R. Kelly, Destiny’s Child, Usher etc. haha.
Favorite movie, tv show:
The most fantastic and fascinating tv show I have ever watched (so far) is definitely Twin Peaks. Also all movies by Hayao Miyazaki are very special to me.
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
The beauty products I swear by are water and coconut oil. Drink lots of water and use coconut oil for everything (yes, everything).
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I wasn’t modeling I would probably be experimenting with different ways of conveying aesthetics into different forms to see which process I like the best. I would love to start experimenting with video installation. I would also learn myself to skateboard.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I’m not sure if it’s considered uncool but I like to read comics.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
Everything has been very rewarding in many different ways so far – both the good and bad situations. I especially feel very privileged to be able to live a life so far from the trivial everyday life. However, this kind of lifestyle has also made me more grateful for the simplicity of triviality.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
A very good thing about Denmark is definitely the quality of our social security system and educational system. Danes also have a great sense of design in my opinion.
Which brand would you really love to model for?
I think it’s too hard to choose just one.
Place you would love to visit:
I would love to visit the countryside somewhere in Asia and try to live in total isolation from the modern life. I have an idea of vast lands and beautiful nature, but I’m not sure that’s true. Some island in the Caribbean Sea wouldn’t be bad either.
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Currently I’m obsessed with www.rookiemag.com! It’s an online magazine run by a cool girl named Tavi Gevinson. It’s my go-to inspiration and I love their DIYs.
