How did you become a model? And why?
I got scouted in Munich. I see modelling as a way to express myself and to find out more about myself and my look. I also saw it as a great opportunity to travel around the world and to get to know new people and cultures.

Have you always wanted to be a model?
When I was a kid, I did some modelling already and my aim has always been to continue to do this some day.

Who are your heroes in life and in modelling?
I have to say my grandmother because she gives so much without any expectations.

What is your present state of mind?
I am very grateful and happy. Even if sometimes it’s a struggle, I learned to somehow make the best of it.

What is your idea of happiness?
My idea of happiness is to be without any worries and fears about the people I love and myself.

If you were not a model, what would you be or do?
I would probably study biology.

What do you miss most when you’re travelling?
My family and my mum’s cooking.

What is your favourite song or songs to walk to?
Right now Be My Baby from The Ronettes.

What would you say is the biggest myth or misperception about being a model?
That modelling is an easy job which doesn’t require any personality or skills.
