Ethnic Origin:


How discovered:
Scouted at a concert in Amsterdam by my booker when I was 15 years old.

What was your first modeling job?
First one was a shoot. I was camping in the Dutch seaside so I went with all my luggage to the shoot in Amsterdam. Good way to end the trip, right? But first actual job was for a show at Amsterdam Fashion Week.

Favorite things:
Good weather, good people & good music.

What are you listening to at the moment?
Tash Sultana

Favorite movie, tv show:
Friends, absolute favorite.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I use a particular day & night cream from Mary Cohr to keep my skin like this.

What were you doing before modeling?
I was in high school.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
Either I would be on my first year of studying or I would still have a gap year because I really don’t know what I want to study… such a hard choice.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
Going to Colombia, for me it is on the other side of the world. So that’s a thing. But booked on such a short notice I couldn’t really let it sink in that I was actually going. So it didn’t really feel like on the other side of the world or far away from home. Especially the people were amazing. Had a lot of fun with them. After the job I took 2 days extra to be in Colombia and I really recommend it to people that are in for an experience.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
That the Dutch people are so relaxed, every Dutch person I meet has a particular vibe around them. Wherever I go I’m happy to meet my fellow Dutchies. It’s good to be around the people that are so easy going and so down to earth. That is what I am most proud of I guess, that we stand by who we are.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would love to do something for Céline again, Phoebe Philo creates an image of such a strong and classy woman.

Place you would love to visit:
There’s definitely one thing on my bucket list and that is to see the Northern Lights

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Untouched nature, and let’s leave it that way guys!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Don’t pluck your eyebrows, people.
