Tell us about your career as model. How did you get started?
When I was little I always wanted to be a model. I’m a lucky girl because my aunt is a very famous model/actress and she pushed me in the right direction. She lives in Thailand and when she had a shoot to do, the designer asked me to come to Thailand to be in the shoot and I said yes! It was a big experience and the magazine was one of the most famous in Thailand. A few weeks later a model agency asked me to come over. And that’s how my career as a model began.
What’s going through your mind when you’re modeling in front of the camera?
When I am in front of the camera I like to show different emotions and poses because I also like to act. It helps me a lot when I have to look sad for example; I think about a sad thing that happened in my life.
What’s your favorite/least favorite thing about being a model?
You meet a lot of nice people and I like to travel. It gives me a beautiful feeling that I can do all of this and that I get unforgettable opportunities. It’s just a dream coming true, and I hope there won’t be an end to this beautiful story!
Are there any other models in the industry that you look up to?
Not in my industry but there are people I look up to, it is Cara Delevigne, Davika Hoorne (my aunt), Kendall Jenner.
How would you define your personal style?
I don’t have a personal style because I like to chance it a lot. That’s why I have a lot of clothes :p . I can be very girly but I have my days I could look like a rock&roll gangster (hihi XD).
And what are some of the heroes of your wardrobe?
I love my blue jacket and my cute little dress from Brigit Bardott. My ripped jeans is basic but I love it! I also have a pair of Chanel shoes and I just adore them! I also love my Adidas shoes, I wear them a lot.
Could you give us your best beauty and exercise tip(s)?
1) ‘Never’ forget to take off your make-up when you go to sleep!!!
2) Try to put on a mask every week. I use mud to put on my face. Don’t worry you can buy it in Kruidvat, it’s very cheap and it works.
3) When you have shaved your legs, do not forget to put cream on your legs; they will shine!
Exercise Tips :
1) Never have time to go to the gym? Don’t worry! You can do some exercises at home, and this account on Instagram can help you : HOME.EXERCISES
2) Do not forget to be healthy! Detox water is very good for your body. Just take a bottle of water and put some slices of lemon and strawberry in your water.
3) Don’t forget, ‘If you want it, work for it!’
What is the one beauty product you can’t live without?
It’s my Nivea crème I put on every single day in the morning and when I go to sleep. It helps a lot when my face is dry and it gives me a shining face.
What is your favorite city and where do you like to hang out there?
My favorite city in Belgium is Gent because I like the old buildings atmosphere in the city. The city has also nice restaurants and little pubs to go to.
What do you believe is the key to success for a model? What qualities does one need to succeed?
You have to be social with everyone and certainly not shy. You also have to be 100% sure about everything you do!
What do you think MODELLIST-ID can do for the model community?
It’s amazing how they give models the chance to see the experiences of other models and to blog about theirs.
What are your working on right now and what are your future aspirations?
I love to act too, that’s why I play in a serie in Ketnet on TV. I do a lot of auditions and I do them with a lot of success.
