Hi, Daphne! Can you introduce yourself to our Spotted Style followers?
Hi! I’m Daphne Kooy, I’m 18 (almost 19) years and I’ve been modeling for a while now. Also I have my own blog were I write about modeling, food and lifestyle.
How long ago did you start modelling and did it change your life in some way?
I started modeling when I was 15, so almost 4 years now. It really changed my life (in a good way)! I started eating a lot healthier and started working more often. Now its just a way of life and with or without modeling I will always keep living a healthy lifestyle for sure.
Have you travelled a lot because of work? What was the destination of your last trip?
Yes! I traveled a lot the past year! My last destination was Barcelona. I’m in love with that city!
What does it take to be a successful in the modelling industry and what is your advice for the newcomers?
I think it’s important that you are confident but stay true to yourself. Never starve yourself but just live healthy, take every chance you get and show your real personality. Its not only about looks but also about your personality. Just be healthy, happy and work hard. That’s all you can do. And always remember that it’s not personal if a client won’t book you. Maybe your just not the type they’re searching for.
Can you tell us what is the thing that you love most about your job?
You have an amazing personal blog! We follow it and we love it! Do you want to tell more about it for the people who don’t know yet about it?
Thankyou! That’s so nice to hear! I Have my own blog: www.daphnekooy.nl Where I write about my life as a model, food, health and more. I love baking healthy pies and cakes and making new recipes. I want to show people that healthy food can be delicious and fun! You don’t have to starve yourself to lose weight and I want people to know that! You can live healthy and still enjoy good food! I also like to show you guys some things about my personal life and my experiences with modeling and fashion.
