Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Linnéa Berzén, I grew up doing dog sledding in the north of Sweden. sleeping in igloos with my dad. People often describe me as one of the most positive people they know and I have been like that since I was a baby. I love modeling and traveling more than anything else. I love connecting with people. Whatever I do I do it 110%.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I am happy and thankful of who I am. And I think the odd things make you special and unique. A confident person is so much more attractive so be happy for who you are!
How did you start modeling?
for the very first time it was a scout from Ford NYC who scouted me,by then I was still in school, it did open up my eyes for modeling and later on I started and falled in love immediately, now I’m so ambitious on modeling, it is really my number one focus right now. And I am very sure to make this happen.

I absolutely love it, I have such a big passion of being in front of the camera I just love it so much and everyone I works with feels it to! And it is also because of all the lovely people I’ve worked with.

What is your beauty regimen?
Beauty is not just about having the right skin creams and about the surface, it is about what you put inside swell. eat good and your skin and hair will be good. And don’t forget about treating yourself what you like - a smile makes a person so much more beautiful. A good person also becomes way more beautiful in my eyes. when someone is nice I see all the good in the person. Be in the moment enjoy the life you are given.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others? My believe and will to make it. The people I work with always say that I have a great energy that makes me stand out. I always want to see people around me happy and I love helping and seeing people success.
What are your plans for the future?
Easy - to make it to the top.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Working with Maybelline, or Marie claire. It keeps coming a lot of fun favorite experiences all the time and I love it. For sure one of my favorite experiences so far is when I got catched by papparrazis in NYC. That is a very funny story that I will tell you about another time ;)
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Start with taking polaroid pictures, at home with your phone camera. you can ask someone at home to take them for you, very simple with natural hair and no makeup. And try to apply with these in agencies in your country. Pick agencies who really wants you, they are the ones who will work for you.
What do you think of the magazine?
I think it is a great and interesting magazine with a lot of fun people inside. It is interesting to read about the different photographers, make up artist and models. I like the layout of the magazine. The idea of the interviews with different people is great. and it will be funny to follow the magazine to grow.
