Describe yourself with a few words:
I am a dreamer. You can find me deep inside my head all day. I’m chaotic, don’t understand myself, different everyday. My mood and thoughts change every 5 seconds. When my life gets too perfect, I mess everything up, just so I have some challange again. Oh and I am just a laughing happy girl!
What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
My passion is water, as in the seas, lakes and rivers. I love sailing, I love staring over the river and walking the dog at the beach.
When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
I got scouted 2 years ago in my hometown by my agent, who lives just 10 min from my house. First I had to finish my highschool and start training to get in a good shape. I went to Milan in May 2014, and that’s when I really started my career.
Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
Oh yes it did, and still does. After I lived in Milan for 5 months, I learned so much about myself and how to be independent. I feel more satisfied and relaxed now living on my own.
Are you doing catwalks?
I’m now living in London since January, and I’m gonna do the Fashion week for the first time! The castings are starting this week, so fingers crossed.
Have you dreamed to be a model?
Yes, I did. I always wanted to be a model for hair products. But I never ever dared to think I actually could be a model.
One thing that you love most about modelling?
Working at different locations with differents teams everyday, doing different jobs and meeting amazing people and getting the chance to see the world. I really feel lucky!
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your own style?
I think fashion is translating feelings and stories into (for example) clothes.
What is your musthave for the season?
The Brogue Leather Ankle Boots from Zara.
Fashion/ beauty icon that you admire?
What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
That’s an easy question- my boyfriend! Aaaw how sweet…
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I think what inspires me the most is music. I can talk for hours about music, but lets just say music means a lot to me.
How do you see Life through your eyes?
Like streaming water. Every little thing has influence on the way it makes its way through all the obsticals, but whatever you do, how bad the things are that’s happening, the stream will go on. And so does life.
The things that are worth fighting for are?
Making everyone proud and taking the chances of traveling around the world and having an amazing time.
How do you imagine the future, what does it hold for you?
I really don’t know! I know myself, my interests are changing all of the time, so I never know what I’ll be doing next week, month, year or whenever.
If you could tell something to the whole world what it would be?
That Dutch pancakes with Nutella are really delicious.
