When did you begin your career as an influencer/model?
My career as an influencer started when I was in 9th grade. I posted a selfie that was reposted by another page with a large amount of followers, and I gained a lot of followers from that. So from that point I stayed consistent in posting everyday and my Instagram slowly grew. I had my first modeling job when I was 16. Modeling has always been something I have done on the side of social media, but I love it. It is something that I would love to do more of.
What was the highlight of your trip with Modeliste?
The trip to Tulum was amazing! It was my very first time in Mexico and that was first of all an amazing experience. I’m so glad I got to go on a trip and to meet so many new, sweet and inspiring people. It’s so hard to pick a highlight of the trip because the whole thing was incredible! Exploring the cenotes, tequila tasting and of course the amazing food! I enjoyed every second of all of it!
City getaway or tropical getaway?
It’s a very tough question because I love both so much. I would probably choose tropical trips because I live in a very busy city at the moment. I love warm tropical places and it’s always amazing to get some sunshine and chill time at the beach.
Do you have any exciting upcoming projects that you can share with our readers?
I have a few upcoming projects that I’m working on but I can’t share the details yet, unfortunately!
3 items you cannot leave your house without?
Lip balm, a digital camera and my lucky ring (which I made myself. I never leave without it as I think it brings me luck!)
What is something about yourself most people would be surprised by?
I used to write songs, sing and play the drums when I was little. My dream was to be a singer. I was also obsessed with Michael Jackson and I would wear a hat that looked just like his to school everyday for a whole year in Middle-school.
Which products are you loving this season to stay hydrated?
-Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre
-Youth to the people Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Night Mask
-Kiehls ultra facial cleanser is really nice because it rinses my skin without drying it out.
How do you balance your work life and your personal life?
It’s’ not an easy thing! Especially not when my job is centered around social media, which is also a large part of my personal life. I must say that I feel very privileged to make a living out of something that is also my hobby and something that I am very passionate about though.
Girls night in or Girls night out?
Girls night out! I recently ended a relationship, so right now, I just love to go out and have fun!
What is your favorite makeup trend right now?
I love cream blushes and bronzers. Especially the ones from my favorite brand Refy.
Who is someone that inspires you?
There are so many people and things that inspire me, e.g. my friends, people in the street and people I follow on Instagram. If I have to pick one person, I would say Emma Chamberlain. I love her personality and her way of living.
What makes you feel confident?
When I’m wearing an outfit that I feel comfortable in. Taking good care of my skin, hair and body also makes me feel confident.
The best advice you can give someone who wants to pursue a modeling/content creator career?
There is only one you! Strongly believe that and play to your strengths while always learning and becoming the best version of yourself everyday. The journey never ends and that’s what makes life exciting.
What would you like to say to your fans/followers?
Thank you so much for everything. I wouldn’t be able to do what I love to do without you!
