"I actually have one goal, and that is to have fun while I'm doing it."
Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.
Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?
I think the modeling industry is a foreign place for most people and when I got the opportunity to do it myself I was intrigued. After doing it a while i found out that its very exciting and all kinds of things happening all the time, there is almost never a boring day, almost.. I am a happy person that wants to do stuff in my life, I ride wherever the wind takes me and modeling lets me do all kinds of stuff.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
I have no education in the field, but there are some courses one should participate in. Me myself, have attended catwalk courses and that's about it.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
There are so many different kinds of models and what kind of "looks" the different agencies are looking for. The only thing that has to be there is the height and a will to succeed.
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
I have no specific goals as that could make me possessed in making those goals, but I have aspirations in working with the biggest brands in the world. I actually have one goal, and that is to have fun while I'm doing it.
What do you know about advertising psychology and photography?
I dont know that much yet really, I'm trying to learn.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I'm a very open person, I always greet people with an open mind and stay interested.
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
I go to the gym I'd say 4 times a week, sometimes more sometimes less. I try and eat nutritiously.
What is your dream role as a model?
I have no idea actually, at the top of my head right now I'm just going to say work for Kanye with his Yeezy clothing line.
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
Taking all of my clothes off for example.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
I'm at my early stages of my career as a model, but I'd like to travel and do this full time.
What is your most memorable experience so far?
Being booked as a first option to the fashion week in Norway I'd say is my most memorable experience so far.
