Interview: Model Sofia Samuelsson (Sweden)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I’m a 22 year old girl from Sweden. One of my biggest passions is climbing, both indoors and outdoors. one of the best things with climbing is that you can travel anywhere to do it and that’s what I’ve been doing the last year. I also love watching tv-series it’s like the second best thing after climbing haha.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
Honestly I never think about that. And I don’t think that anyone should think about that. Of course I feel insecure about myself, but thinking about what I want to change about myself doesn’t help. I rather spend my money on climbing gear and traveling than plastic surgery (but I don’t mind, care or think less of people that have done or want to do it).
How did you start modeling?
I just had a MUA-friend that wanted to do something with me and she knew a photographer that wanted to shoot with me, simple as that haha. After that photographers started to notice me and asked to do some collaborations.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Well I don’t really know, I don’t consider myself a model. I don’t work with it, just doing it for fun on my spare time.
What is your beauty regimen?
Haha I really need to be honest here, I don’t have any. I wash of my make-up before I sleep but I guess that’s it. It’s bad I know.. I’m so lazy haha.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I’am a quite direct and honest person, I don’t like to speak in riddles. If I want to know something, I ask. If I feel something, I most of the time (haha) speak up about it. But I don’t really think people are that unique, I mean we all are humans.
What are your plans for the future?
Travel & climb more. When I feel that I’m done traveling, I want to build an career, but I don’t know what I want to work with, I guess that’s why I’m traveling so much.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I have too many, when you traveling you really get to experience a lot. I just came home from a month in USA and that was really something.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
I guess it’s just to try, work hard. Find photographers in your town and ask them to work with you, even if they’re not the best you can grow and be better together.
What do you think of the magazine?
It’s amazing to have a platform where artists can show their work. It becomes more real, I think.
