Place of Origin:
I’m from a small island: Guadeloupe (French West Indies)

Ethnic Origin:
I’m mixed, half black and half white. My mom is from French West Indies and my dad from Strasbourg in France.

Birthsign:
I’m one of the most dangerous signs: Scorpio! Born on the 3rd of November which is my favorite number.

How discovered:
I started with a small competition in my little island called Zaigo Fashion Face which confirmed my dream to become a top model one day. It is not easy to become a model coming from a small island like Guadeloupe but thanks to social media, I was scouted by CLOSE UP MANAGMENT who was the key to my beginnings and who is doing a fantastic job!

Favorite things:
I looove to cook and of course eat my own food that I cooked! Haha! And I love to travel, especially in warm countries.

What are you listening to at the moment?
I’m a fan of Closer from the Chainsmokers.

Favorite movie, tv show:
No specific movie title but I do love a good laugh with some romance in it. Favorite series: Shameless

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I don’t have a favorite designer as fashion is always changing. They are all inspiring in different ways but I do love Karl Lagerfeld. His collections and runway shows are always so magical. I also love all Chanel bags. They are timeless. I do take extra care of my hair to keep my curls healthly and shiny. L’OREAL and AVLON are the best for my hair right now.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I wasn’t a model I would do every single thing to become one. After my modeling career I want to share my experience and give more opportunities to all the secret talents in the Caribbean. Maybe opening my own agency… Why not?

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I can’t start my day without having milk and cereal. I know I’m kind of still a baby.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
My favorite shoot was for H&M Magazine and ESPRIT campaign in Sweden with the most amazing and funniest team so far.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The best thing ever about Guadeloupe is the sun everyday, every week throughout the whole year! No seasons, that’s the best.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I think it’s one of the biggest dream of lot of girls: The Victoria Secret Show. Dream number one for me and I’m working for it!

Place you would love to visit:
I would love to go to China. It looks like a unique country and culture that I would love to experience.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Right now I am obsessed with food (and will always be! haha), the gym and New York! My first time was only for a few days in December. I can’t wait to go back!
