Place of Origin:
I’m from Copenhagen in Denmark

Ethnic Origin:
My family are all Danish.

Birthsign:
Cancer

How discovered:
I was discovered in Copenhagen when I was 12. I was with my friend when Bente from Scoop Models came to me, and asked if I wanted to join Scoop. I was so happy that I jumped around the rest of the day, haha. I actually don’t know why, because I never dreamed about being a model before I joined Scoop Models. Then we waited until I was ready (and a little older) to begin modeling.

Favorite things:
I like being creative and write or draw. I love to write small essays or poems and I love the fact that you can just write all your thoughts and feelings down in a beautiful way. You can read them again and again, hang them on your wall, give them to somebody, tear them to pieces or just forget them in a notebook and find them after many years.

Favorite music, band:
I have a very weird taste in music. It all depends on the mood I’m in. But my all-time favorite is 18+! I get very inspired by them. I also love Frank Ocean, FKA Twigs, Lykke Li and Patti Smith. I love the way Frank Ocean mixes his beautiful voice with rap. Sometimes I think it’s fun to listen to things like Destiny’s Child or Backstreet Boys. And when I want to relax I often play Amy Winehouse. As you can see my taste is very weird, haha.

Favorite movie, tv show:
I like all the bad series like ‘New Girl’ or ‘’Unbreakable’’ where you don’t have to concentrate on the story. I love everything about Sex and the City! I have seen the movies way too many times and I think that I’m halfway in the series. I also love stupid shopping movies! Especially ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ or ‘Confessions Of A Shopaholic’

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I don’t think that I have a favorite designer. I love Prada and I’m in love with the collections that Alessandro Michele has created for Gucci so far (who isn’t?) I always use the My Burberry perfume and then I’m addicted to lip balm. Literally I’m addicted. I’ve found an amazing and very cheap lip balm called “Mentolatum”. It’s the best for my lips! I just think that it’s good for everyone else with sensitive lips.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I would definitely do something creative -something with fashion. I’ve thought about having my own little vintage shop but i would definitely do something more creative beside that. Maybe writing?

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
There’s nothing uncool about me.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I did the Prada’s SS 16 men’s show in June and it was amazing! It was so my first show, and I was so high on adrenaline the whole evening after the show :) It was an amazing collection and everything was just perfect. Now I’ve gotten more used to doing shows (even though I’m still pretty new and haven’t done many shows) but I still get an amazing feeling when I do shows, and especially after where everyone (hopefully) is released and happy.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I like to come home to my friends. I love to travel around in the world to work and experience new cultures and places, but it’s also nice to come home to my friends and family to a place where you can just relax and where you feel home. I also love the fresh air in Denmark. It sounds weird but there really is a nice, clean and fresh air in Denmark.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would really love to work with Juergen Teller. I love his work. The atmosphere in his photography is amazing!

Place you would love to visit:
Right now I would just prefer a place where I could relax. Maybe on beautiful island with Turkish water on the never ending beaches? Sounds pretty good to me. Besides that I would love to visit Tokyo! Everyone says it’s an amazing city, so I really want to experience it myself.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
A leather-jacked I found in Iro some months ago. It has just been stuck in my head since… It’s amazing and fits me perfect! It was on sale when I found it so I really regret that I didn’t buy it. I think it’s called Zerignola.
