My hobbies are playing the piano, sporting, going out and I love my friends. My biggest passion is sporting and modeling, I love being in front of the camera!
When and how you started your modeling career?
Were you scouted by somebody? I was scouted a couple of times, the first time was at my fourteenth year. When I was sixteen, I sent my pictures to a lot of agencies, and I finally chose for De Boekers.
Did modeling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
Yes, I have become a lot more confident and less shy. I learned to be proud of myself and to make the best of everything. I also became a lot more ‘world wise’. I travel a lot on my own, and I met many different people.
Are you doing catwalks?
I have done some already, but I just started modelling and I hope to do more. Though, I prefer photo shoots.
Have you dreamed to be a model?
Not really, but people often told me I have a ‘different’ face and that I could be a model. When I did a professional photo shoot at a party from my best friend, the photographer and I found out that I am photogenic.
One thing that you love most about modeling?
I haven’t travelled much yet, but I really hope to do that some time. I think I would love that mostly. What I love most about modeling now? The awesome experiences and all the happenings, that other girls from my age won’t witness. I think it is a big privilege to be able to do this work.
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your own style?
I think fashion reflects a one’s personality. I would describe my own style as basic, feminine, classy. I love black clothes.
What is your must have for the season?
Chelsea boots! Definitely! I love my Chelsea boots. They are awesome.
Fashion/ beauty icon that you admire?
Actually, I don’t have one. I like to mix things together. I often am searching for inspiration in the Elle, or at other sites. I do like Mascha from www.beautygloss.nl , I love her beauty reviews and tips.
A fact about you that we don’t know?
I used to do speed skating on ice on a high level, and I quit with modeling for that. (I was very young, 14, so I didn’t do a lot then). Now I switched, I started modeling again and I quit speed skating.
What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
My friends make me happy, I couldn’t have wished for better ones. We can laugh about the most stupid things and snapchatting the most awful pictures to each other are our specialty.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get my inspiration from beauty blogs and from sites as elle.nl, vogue.nl…
How do you see Life through your eyes?
I want to do as much as possible, achieve all the dreams that I have and I want to enjoy life now! Make mistakes, fix them and learn from them.
The things that are worth fighting for are?
My family, friends and my dreams. I want to become a doctor and I am going to work for that. I also want to become a good model, so I am willing to achieve that as well. Yes, I am very ambitious sometimes, but I think you can do everything, if you work hard enough for it.
How do you imagine the future, what does it hold for you?
I hope to study medicine and become a very good doctor, I want to help and to support people and I want to research diseases as cancer.
If you could tell something to the whole world what it would be?
If you are willing to work for something and really want to achieve it, just go for it, work for it and do not let someone bring you down by saying you can’t.
