Introduce yourself with a few words? Who are you?
My Name is Bo, 19 years old and I live in Apeldoorn. I’m very social and just like to live life to the fullest ( I know it sounds very cheesy, but it’s true). When I’m not busy with working out or doing stuff for my school, I like to go out with friends and just get out of the house to do stuff!
What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
I spent a lot of time with my friends so I guess that will be my biggest hobby. I also watch a lot of movies when I have free time left. I work out 5 times a week to stay in shape and keep my sizes, what is very important when you go out a lot like me ha-ha. My biggest passion will be to get successful one day and have nice family.
When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
It all started when I just turned 18. I was shopping with my parents and went to a store called Geddes & Gilmore. When we bought some stuff my dad picked up a brochure with a modelling contest to win a photo shoot and clothes, the only thing you had to do was that you had to send some pictures of yourself smiling. I thought I have nothing to lose, so I sent some pictures and got invited to the shoot, and shot a lot of great pictures! After I got the pictures I sent them to some agency I found on the internet, and got invited by Ego’s Models. And that’s now my mother agency.
Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
Yes, it definitely did change my life. I got way more attention than I did before on social media and in real life and I also met a lot of new people.
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your personal style? Where do you pull your inspiration from?
Fashion means to me that you feel good and confident wearing your own clothes. I think you just have to wear what makes you happy and not what the other people like, have your own style. I wear a lot of different styles from classy to very basic and from fully black to very casual! My Inspiration comes from my work as a model and a lot of things on the internet. My favourite instagram account for clothes are @menwithclass and @menwithstreetstyle.
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 didn’t travelled to other countries for modelling, so I can’t say that yet. But I travelled to Amsterdam a lot for modelling so I learned a lot about the streets of Amsterdam!
