How were you discovered?
My mom and I were at a cafe when I was 12 and I got spotted by an agent from my previous agency.
What was your first modelling job?
I did a look book for an exclusive Danish fashion brand called AIAYU. They make fantastic clothing made from organic wool from Bolivia. I actually still make their look book every half year.
Dream job: who would you like to work with
Tom Ford and Calvin Klein would be the coolest.
Growing up, did you always want to be a model
I never really considered it…. I guess planning isn’t really my thing, I take things as they come. So it was kind of a surprise when I got spotted.
