Describe yourself with a few words:
Social, caring and creative.
What are you hobbies and biggest passions?
Sport, cooking, music, traveling, spending time with the people I love.
When and how you started your modelling career? Were you scouted by somebody?
My modelling carreer started in the summer of 2013. I was scouted on Instagram and within a few weeks I flew to Budapest to meet with the agency. After that I signed with my current Dutch agency: Q’s Models.
Did modelling influence or change your life? If yes, how?
Yes. On the first place I’m eating more healthy and I exercise more. But it made me also more mature and responsible. When I’m traveling, I’m doing that alone. So there’s no one who cookes my food or does my laundry for example. I really have to take care of myself, especially because I lived in lots of different countries with different cultures and languages.
Are you doing catwalks?
I do, but not so often. In Asia I can do catwalk more then in Europe, because here I’m a little too short to walk shows.
What are the biggest campaigns/brands you have done and worked for?
Have you dreamed to be a model?
Yes I did. When I was younger I already dreamed about becoming a model. I always watched HNTM and ANTM and I always hoped that one day I would be part of the fashion world.
One thing that you love most about modelling?
Traveling the world while I’m doing something I love.
What is fashion for you? How would you describe your own style?
Fashion is showing your mood and personality by the things you wear. My own style changes a lot.. I used to wear very girly things, but nowadays I like to dress the opposite. I can’t live without my boots, oversized sweaters and leather jacket.
What is your musthave for the season?
Lots of beanies!!
Fashion/ beauty icon that you admire?
Doutzen Kroes. She really fighted for what she wanted and now she’s known all over the world. She still looks like a very down to earth woman though.

What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
I’m a very happy person so there are lots of things that make me laugh. Even during shoots and shows, I have fun with the team by trying to create a comfortable atmosphere without being unprofessional. I don’t like it when people take everything too serious.
My family, friends, boyfriend and cat make me happy.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get my inspiration from traveling and the people I meet. It’s amazing to see all the differences between countries and between people from different parts of the world. They inspire me in how I see things.
How do you see Life through your eyes?
In my eyes Life is something very special. It’s important to live it the way you want it, and the way you feel it’s right. You should’nt let other people decide what you should do with your live and how you should do it. If you do what feels right, you will never do the wrong thing.
The things that are worth fighting for are?
Family, friends and love. Of course my carreer is important for me and I’ll fight for it to accomplish as much as possible, but it will never be my number one priority.

If you could tell something to the whole world what it would be?
Show your own personality. You’ll be different from the ones who are afraid to do so and from the ones who try to hide behind a mask.
