My name is Alexandra and I'm born in the country side by the sea outside Stockholm in Sweden. I have been working as an international model since two years ago. I travel and work all over the world, but Sweden is always my home and where I stopover between work.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I don't want to change anything about myself, because I love being me and I'm proud about what I am doing and what I have done. All my flaws and qualities make me who I am.
How did you start modeling?
I was at the shopping mall with my mom, I was like 16 years old , and we passed by a hair compatition by Mood . The price was to be The Face of the brand on the packaged. I was one of the winners and after that I started do it more and more. And after school I decided to do modeling for 100%.
What do you think of the work as a model?
For Me It's a dream job, to have the opportunity to travel the world and work in the same time. I feel so fortunate that I get to explore some of the most fascinating, historical and culturally rich places on earth. It's such a privilege to have these adventures and experience, I learn so much every day!
What is your beauty regimen?
Enough sleep, take care of your skin and body every day with healthy and clean food and beauty products. Always do what is best for you and your interior.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I am a very positive and happy person. I'm easy going , cooperative and have the social skills to know how to behave around different people. So I think it is quite easy to work and spend time with me, and I'm quite funny also haha
What are your plans for the future?
My plans for now is to go back home to Sweden and spend time with my family and friends. Enjoy the Swedish summer, relax and recharge some energy to my next big adventure that we'll se where it takes me!
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
That I started traveling and that I have been alone so much, you learn a lot about yourself and others. I have met both fantastic and the most horrible people , but I'm so grateful to have been able to meet both sides because that made me who I am today and what I have for the values, thoughts and actions.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
My advice to other people who wants to be a model is to be strong as a person, in yourself and out, and it's so important to be your own bestfriend. You may think that you are not alone because you are always surrounded by people all the time but at the same time, you have never felt so alone as you are when you are out traveling. Sometimes it's only yourself you can trust on and can you imagine traveling around the world with your worst enemy? does not sound so appealing, right? so to be friend with yourself is everything!
What do you think of the magazine?
It's such an great idea! I like that you as a model, photographer, stylist and others from the fashion world have the opportunity to get closer to the readers and present themselves in the way they want to be presented.Im so glad to take part of it, thank you so much!
