First off tell us how you were discovered and how your modeling career all started?
When I was younger I got scouted on the street, but I guess it wasn’t the right time for me then. My mother agency actually found me on instagram and that’s how it all started.
What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?
Lately I’ve been shooting a lot in studios, unfortunately it isn’t always about exotic locations ;).
But I did a shoot last time in the city Berlin, which is a really cool city. The team was great working with, we had a good vibe going on what leads to great results.
Do you ever get shy in front of the camera?
When I was younger for sure, but you get used to it and build up confidence in time. Being in front of the camera is my job and I love it!
Tell us a bit about your mother agency and what you like most about them.
I bet my mother agent is very curious to the answer of this question. I’m very happy with my mother agency and the best thing about them is that my mother agent always has time for me. Doesn’t matter if it’s urgent or not.
What are the main challenges in modeling today?
I guess it’s different for everyone, but I think standing out in a good way is one of them. There a lot of girls who all want the same thing.
What is your favorite thing to do when not working?
If I’m abroad I go searching for healthy foodspots, like a vegan or raw food restaurant. I have some favourites and I go back there when I’m in town. And when I’m not eating I like to do cultural stuff.
If I’m at home I just like to spend some time with my mother, since I don’t see her that often.
Take us through a typical day in the life of Nicolle.
When I wake up I always check my email and messages first. After I make myself some healthy breakfast, get dressed and go to work or castings. After work I relax a bit and then I do my workout. I go to bed early, cause I just really need my sleep 🙂 so I’ll be fresh and full of energy the next morning.
What is your favorite healthy snack?
Almonds or broad beans.
What do you do to stay in shape?
I follow a diet and I do pilates.
What are your travel essentials?
I invest a lot in skincare, so when I fly I always carry a little bottle of moisturising cream (mask) in my hand luggage. Flying just makes your skin so dehydrated.
What’s your favorite place to hangout in (current location)?
My current location is The Netherlands, I live near Maastricht. So when I’m here I like to go to the city with my friends or my mother and just have a coffee or lunch together. Also a good time to catch up.
Give us 5 facts about you people may not know.
Ok here we go:
– I’m a mix of Dutch, German and Indonesian blood
– I like to be organised and plan a lot, I just don’t like wasting time.
– I’ve a big love for designer handbags. But hey, I see it as an investment :).
– I graduated in pharmaceutical business administration.
– I used to be a night owl, but now I’m an early bird. No idea how that happened!
What do you think MODELLIST-ID can do for the model community?
It’s a good way to connect with eachother. After all, we’re doing the same job and nobody understands you better than another model.
Do you have any model friend you would like to see presented on Modellist-ID?
Yes, Ania Berezowska. She’s a model and good friend of mine who I met during my stay in Milan.
What’s next for you?
Well… good question. I never know actually, it will be a surprise.
