How discovered:
I was shopping with my aunt, nieces and my sister in Amsterdam and I was scouted when I was walking there in the Zara.

What was your first modeling job?
My first modeling job was for the Prada resort show in Milan.

Favorite things:
I love to write my adventures in my diary, I love to draw (I am not really good at it but I try haha). I love to work, sport and I love to spend time with family and friends.

What are you listening to at the moment?
I have a really diverse taste in music. I listen to a lot of things and can’t live without music!

Favorite movie, tv show:
My favorite movie is Intouchables.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I don’t have a particular designer I really like. I love a lot of designers. Because everybody is unique in their own way. I am wearing 1 fragrance for a couple of months now and I really love it. It’s le Labo Santal 33. I clean my face every day and night with Bioderma Créaline H2O and Nuxe oil for my face. Here’s a little bit of my beauty routine haha.

What were you doing before modeling?
I was at high school and was working in a restaurant at the beach nearby where I live.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I think I would also take a gap year like now and went traveling to develop myself and find out what I want to do because I still don’t actually know what I want to study. And go studying after that year.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I did 3 shows for Prada and I am forever grateful for that. I did a cool shoot for Coach a couple of months ago and I loved it so much. The people, the vibe, and the results are amazing!!

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I live in a little country nearby the beach and the dunes. And I love the nature there so much. First, it was normal for me but now when I am often away I appreciate it more and I am really grateful for that. I miss the beach the most if I am away for a long time in a city where is no beach.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
Chanel, Givenchy or Yves Saint Laurent

Place you would love to visit:
I would love to backpack in Thailand and go to Bali one day.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I started a diary at the beginning of this year and I can’t stop writing, putting pictures and drawing in there.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
I think that my mum always teaches me from when I was younger to always be yourself and try to not compare yourself with others even how difficult that sometimes can be. And what I learned from my dad and boyfriend is that you have to enjoy every day.
