Place of Origin:
Scouted when I was 12 standing in front of H&M at Berlin Ku’damm – it’s a shopping street – waiting for my mum. Suddenly (my now mother agent) Aylin Hadi talked to me, asked me if I was a model. When she found out I was only 12, she wanted to wait for my mum to arrive and speak to her. Since then I am with Girls Club Management! :)
Best modeling experience so far?
Walking Louis Vuitton as a worldwide exclusive was – for now ;-) – the very best and most exciting job. It was my first show ever and luckily it was with an audience which gives you an andrenaline kick, which I like! Also it was very special to have had the chance to work with Nicolas Ghesquiere personally.
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Right now I am very interested in reading and learning about the right mindset and the impact our psyche has on our daily life. Especially in times of corona, it is so important to stay positive minded and keep going, no matter how hard these times are.
What is something you’ve always wanted to do/try?
I would like to travel through Asia on my own for some months. A couple of years ago I visited Cambodia with my family. Getting to know the culture and the people was an amazing experience and I would like to see much more countries in Asia.
How do you want to make an impact in the world?
First of all I want to have a positive influence on the people around me. If I can help them and make them smile or laugh, I consider it a good day. Small things can have a huge impact and can make you happy. In the longer run I would like to show young girls that you can have the whole package in life: an ambitious career and family – because that’s what I believe in! It would make me very proud if I was considered a good example for this attitude in the future.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
My dad is the biggest inspiration for me and he always told me that I can achieve everything I want as long as I am ready to give 200%.
