Interviews / Stories
Can you tell us a little about you?
I am 19 years old and I’m from Odense, Denmark. I am a vegan, who loves animals, traveling and staying active. I also enjoy playing video games and I am a huge horror fan.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
As a model my height is a bit of a problem, so being a few centimeters taller would definitely make modeling easier for me. Other than that I feel pretty content with myself.
How did you start modeling?
I have always been interested in modelling, but never really tried to pursue it, partly because of my height. But then I was contacted by a very talented photographer, Daniel Hollister through instagram, offering me a shoot. We shot some amazing pictures and after that I got in touch with a lot of other great photographers and it just took off from there.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I love it! I like meeting so many different people, and I have a lot of fun when shooting.
What is your beauty regimen?
Staying happy and healthy! I like to workout everyday and I try to eat healthy for the most part. Also drinking lots of water, staying on a vegan diet and not wearing makeup everyday.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I am a very compassionate and positive person. I have always been compassionate towards animals, which is why I became a vegetarian at 13 and I am now a vegan. I always try to stay positive, especially being around other people. Because I have been through some really dark times myself, and I then learned how important positivity and self care is.
What are your plans for the future?
I definitely want to continue modeling and continue to work hard to get where I want to be in modeling.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Getting to work with amazing photographers, designers and meeting other models is amazing.
One of my favorites experiences was definitely when I was shooting in LA earlier this year.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Just go for it! Try to contact modeling agencies, and get in touch with local photographers to get your portfolio started. Stay confident and take care of your body and mind. Being active on social media, like instagram will also help you getting started.
What do you think of the magazine?
It’s a great way to keep up on photographers, models, etc from all over the world.
