Interview: Model Hannah Björklund (Sweden)
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I live in Sweden, Stockholm and I work as a Project manager within IT.
In my sparetime I dance a set of partner dances, called ballroom dancing. Its 10 different dances for example tango, cha-cha, rumba, jive, waltz etc.
I love dancing, it makes me happy! I wish I could do it a lot more often.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I wish I was a little bit more adventurous. I would like to be able to bungyjump or skydive, but Im just too afraid. I'm a coward!
How did you start modeling?
When I was younger some peolpe asked me if I wanted to be part of the "miss Sweden" competition, but I was too shy and I didnt really believe in myself. When I grew older people told me I was photo genique and I started to enjoy being photographed. So finally I went to a casting at a modeling agency.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I really like working as a model. I enjoy trying out different styles and wearing new designed clothes.
What is your beauty regimen?
I dont eat any red meat (cow or pig). I try to sleep atleast 8h every night and drink a lot of water. I always prefer still water over sparkling water, I think too much carbonic acid is bad for you.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I have a high confidence and I always try to show my personality in what I do. No matter what I focus on delivering a professional performance and I always have the customer in mind.
What are your plans for the future?
Someday I wanna get married. I want to by a house and a dog! At least one:)
What are some of your favourite experiences so far?
Snorkling in the Carribean sea when I was in Dominician Republic. It was so fantastic, under water it looked like an aquarium.
When I was there I also swam with dolphins, they are such beautiful animals.
Its something I will never forget.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Start by creating a strong portfolio. Then find an agency that believes in you.
Believe in yourself and try to distinguish yourself from other models. Always try to be comfortable and confident in front of the camera.
What do you think of the magazine?
Its a beautiful magazine. I think it is wonderful how you show the work of unknown potographers and models from around the world. Thank you for having me!
