The beautiful face of Romana Meijer (15) might be familiar to you all. We have seen her in the CosmoGIRL! model contest and after starting at Fresh Model Management, Romana is now an Elite model. With her dark look and curly hair you would not imagine she has the bluest eyes you have ever seen. And if that ain’t enough to became a Victoria Secret model, her long legs will get her there anyway!
Describe yourself with a few words:
Spontaneous, love being social and goal oriented.
What are your hobbies and biggest passions?
My hobby is dancing. I dance for a while now at dance school Lucia Marthas in Amsterdam. I also like shopping and taking photos. But my biggest passion is modelling.
When and how did you start your modelling career? Were you scouted?
I participated in a model competition for CosmoGIRL. I really liked it because it was the first time I had a real photoshoot! The photos where even published in CosmoGIRL! After that I signed up for model camp by Fresh Model Management (now Elite). I really loved it and for the first time I knew for sure that I want to become a model. After modelcamp I was invited to do a test shoot at Fresh and that’s how I started my model career.
Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
Yes it did change my live. Mostly because I’m way more busy now than I was before. Especially in weekends. I also got more self confidence.
Do you walk fashion shows?
Yes I’ve walked a few shows now and during Amsterdam Fashion week I’ll be walking two shows! I’m really excited about that!
Have you dreamed of becoming a model?
Yes, especially to walk Victoria Secret one day. I feel like, if you can walk Victoria Secret, you have reached the top in modelling!
One thing that you love most about modelling?
What I really love is that you get such amazing make-up with shoots and shows! I try to learn as much of it as possible, so I can try it at home too. I think it’s really nice to see many different countries and cultures as an international model. But unfortunately I am still to young for that.
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your own style?
I really like fashion. For me it’s really important to look nice. My style is different every day. I like to be all dressed up but I also like to dress comfy.
What is your must have for the season?
I think skinny jeans are really a must have!
Fashion/ beauty icon that you admire?
Candice Swanepoel, her body is amazing! And she works for Victoria Secret!
A fact about you that we don’t know?
I’m a huge fan of Justin Bieber.
What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
My little brother always make me laugh! Or a funny movie like Intouchable.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Inspiration for dancing I get from Beyoncé. For modelling it’s Candice Swanepoel.
The things that are worth fighting for are?
Getting my high school diploma and reach my goal: walking Victoria Secret, with wings! Haha..
How do you see the future, what does it hold for you?
I hope to graduate at VWO in three years and then break through as a top model. And then get a nice job in the fashion industry.
If you could tell something to the whole world, what it would be?
That everybody should respect each other. And accept people how they are.
