How did you start modeling?
‘I was scouted a few times when I was young. I didn’t know anything about modeling and it was not my dream to become a model. After a few jobs I started to like it more and more. In the beginning it was a perfect job to make some money while studying. At the moment it is my fulltime job and I love it! It made me independent and world wise.’
What does your career do for you?
`I enjoy traveling for my work and I like to embrace different cultures from around the world as much as possible. It’s always a surprise where I will be next month. My life as a model is not boring. There have been some incredible moments; trips you can’t even imagine, meeting talented people, so many experiences that I’ve loved. It’s the best job to have if you are adventurous.`
What’s your most memorable shoot?
`Swimwear shooting on the Maldives…. 10 days in paradise!`

What’s your beauty regime?
`It’s very important to live a healthy lifestyle. I don’t want to starve myself because I love food! I like to take care of myself and know what kind of food I should be eating. It’s good to work out and keep fit. I have quite a lot of swimwear clients so I need to work very hard to keep my body in shape. It’s not always easy but it’s part of the job. In any job you have to give up certain things.`

Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?

What are your future plans?
