5facts that we don’t know about you?
I don’t like cheese. I painted my hair blond two years ago. I am really nervous before a shoot. I am in love with Italy because of the food, people and temperature! Sometimes I like to have more ‘curves’ because I think that looks more attractive, but I’m perfectly happy with my body
How do you imagine the future, what does it hold for you?
I hope I can work for big brands like Vogue or Chanel but I think that’s what every model wants When I am older I would like to work with people who have eating disorders and help them.
If you could tell something to the whole world what it would be?
Be happy and make the best of your life!
