First off tell us how you were discovered and how your modeling career all started?
I was scouted in Amsterdam when I was out shopping with my mom. Then I thought a lot of girls could be a model but not me. Later I was scouted on Instagram by a photographer named Laura Bausch. We had a photoshoot twice and she introduced me to Elite Amsterdam. I had a conversation with them and it felt really good so now I am with Elite.
What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?
The shoot for the campaign Fashionweek Amsterdam July 2016, that was so amazing. Being the face of a campaign for Fashionweek was so incredible. I saw myself in the Dutch newspapers Telegraaf and Metro. There was a whole page just for me. I was so happy and honored. I can never forget that.
