Read the full interview!
Introduce yourself with a few words? Who are you?
I’m Keven and I’m 18 years old. I play soccer and I work hard for my study. People think I’m funny and that I’m a good person.
What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
My hobbies are drawing, playing soccer and being with my friends. My biggest passion is fitness. I workout a lot and I hope to get big enough to do shoots for Calvin Klein. But I think that will take a while.
When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
I won a model contest on Facebook and the photographer of that shoot, told me that I had a good face to be model. And a lot of other people said stuff like that too. So one day I send some pictures to one agency, but they didn’t respond. A few weeks later I send some pictures to De Boekers and they were really excited to meet me. So that’s how I started modelling.
Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
Modelling didn’t really change anything in my life. The only thing that did change was that I got more attention from girls because I am a model.
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your personal style? Where do you pull your inspiration from?
Fashion isn’t really that important to me. I just wear the clothes I like to wear.
Do you get to travel a lot for your work? If so what’s your favourite city that you have visited? Do you have a dream destination?
I don’t travel a lot for work. I have an agency in Milan and they want me to go there for a month or so. But I just can’t because of school. So I hope to get a lot of work here, in The Netherlands.
Give us 5 facts about you people may not know.
I think that most of the people know this but, I like to eat a lot and I love to workout. I have a guilty pleasure, it’s that I really like the music of Katy Perry. Other facts are that I love hard rock music and rap.
What are your top priorities? What keeps you going?
One of my top priorities is that I like to keep everybody happy, especially my girlfriend. A smile on her face makes me happy. That’s what keeps me going.
Define happiness. What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
Dirty jokes and regular jokes make me laugh, my friends make me laugh. My girlfriend and family and friends make me happy. Like I said before, a smile on my girlfriend’s face brings one on mine too.
How do you see Life through your eyes?
I see life as something we shouldn’t take for granted. Live every moment the fullest and do what makes you happy. Don’t give a f*ck about what others think about you. Haters gonna hate.
3 songs from your playlist?
Unconditionally- Katy Perry
Hope- We came as romans
If you could give a name of this moment of your life, how would this chapter be called?
How do you imagine the future and what does it hold for you?
I hope to be wealthy and happy and married and have 1 or 2 kids. I hope to have a job that pays well and have a beautiful big house. And an Audi R8.
If you could tell something to the whole world what it would be?
Stop saying bae!!
