Can you tell us a little about you?
I worked as a model and actress for many years now. I lived in London for 6 years. I am originally half danish and half egyptian, I was born an raised in Denmark, but i went back to london 7 years ago. Now i'm back in Denmark , ready to spend more time with my family and old friends. I had amazing opportunities in london. I travelled around the world to work as a model, and I meet inspiring people from many cultures and nationalities. I did some very big model campaigns while I lived in london, a worldwide Sephora campaign.I was the front-cover girl for a worldwide L'Oreal campaign, I was in magazine's in London and the US, the Loreal campaign was quite recent. I also worked regular for QVC a Tv-shop channel in britain where i was modelling for the make up brand Front Cover. I had also had some exciting roles as an actress. I also had a role in the international cinema success RUSH. I worked together with Chris Hemsworth the hot hunk you probably know from The Avengers and Thor, and he hugely talented director Ron Howard who directed many famous movies like A Beautiful Mind and Far and Away with Tom cruise and Nicole Kidman. It was a dream come true to meet Ron Howard and be directed by him. I have done loads of Theatre in London and many danish movies and Tv-series.The most recent part that i had was a. Mermaide in a danish/swedish tv-serie. I can't wait to see it.
I am educated as personal trainer, beautician, masseuse and spinning instructor. Right now I follow a new education as a life coach,, I will be finished in 1 year. I also work on my own clothing line, it will be up and running in april 2017, right now i working on my webshop and a factory in China producing my new designs. My goals for 2017 is getting my clothing line up and running, the website is: shop. sabrinaziyada.dk. And still focusing on my acting career. I still love modelling and would like to find more modeljobs, but I have achieved a lot as a model and traveled all over and done some very big international campaigns.
So my focus is more on acting at the moment, my clothing line and focussing and finishing my life coach education. One of my biggest interests is training and eating healthy. I go to the gym 5-6 times a week or run outside, or do yoga at home. I have to do something active almost everyday or I will go nuts.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would like to be less sensitive sometimes.
How did you start modeling?
I started modelling after a friend of mine had some fun with a camera on a beach and took some great photos of me, I sent them of to different modelling agencies in denmark and it all started from there. I got a more serious modelling carrier when i moved to London and started to earn more money and have more international campaigns.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I love working as a model, you get the opportunity to experience the world, meet new people and pampering. It can be a bit lonely sometimes because you often meet people once or a few times, therefore you never really get a close relationship with anyone at work. Like you would do at a normal job where you get to know people better.
What is your beauty regimen?
Like a mentioned earlier I am a fitness freak, so working out is a HUGE part of my life and eating healthy is big interest of mine as well. I eat Organic and drink loads of water every day. I use La Mer cream for my face and I try to eat very big amount's of vegetables at every meal. For breakfast I juice the vegetables and eat fresh chia porridge with fruits. I try to eat many different seeds and bake my own bread, to be sure I get the benefits of different flours and seeds that are antiaging and full of antioxidants.I also go to the spa and sauna gus in the wintet to spoil my body and relax my mind.
What are your plans for the future?
I feel i answered those questions in my introduction.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Confidence and believing in yourself is the key together with a great health regime and lifestyle. Your Skin and body is very important, so be the best version of yourself looks wise and personality wise, You won't get anywhere if you are difficult to be around. nobody likes a Diva and it doesn't matter how hot you are.
What do you think of the magazine?
I love it!! My favorite.
