When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
I went to a concert of Justin Bieber, and I was very excited about that already. But suddenly Tjarda came to me. She asked me if I was interested in modelling and traveling. And of course I was, it has always been a dream to go to New York one day In the first place not for modelling, but for school or something. This was even better!
