HOW DID YOU GOT SCOUTED?
I got scouted by sending Jeni Rose, IMG’s modelscout, one of my pictures. I also used the #wlyg hashtag to get their attention. 

WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT YOUR HOMETOWN/COUNTRY ?
The best thing about the Netherlands in my opinion is that it’s so small and flat. I can cycle anywhere. I like the feeling of not being limited. Also the people are really open minded and straight to the point. I hate our climate though…  

BEING A NEW IMG MODEL I HAVE LEARN….
Being a new IMG model I have learnt that you should not give up too quickly on what you want. It’s kinda a cliché, but true. I have been rejected by almost all modelling agencies in the Netherlands and have been trying to get in the industry for over 4 years. Not giving up on that resulted in being with IMG.            

HOW DO YOU MAKE IT WORK WITH SCHOOL AND MODELING?
I’m quite busy with school which does not work out easily with modelling. School is my main focus but up and till now I have not had too many issues with combining the two. My school is very lenient and cooperative in giving me free days to model.  

WHAT DO YOUR FAMILY THINK ABOUT THE FACT THAT YOU ARE NOW A MODEL?
My family is mainly proud and they are constantly sharing my modelling work to the people around them. They are all very supportive and keep me down to earth.

WHEN I HAVE SOME FREE TIME I…
When I have some free time I try to spend it with my friends to chill together or go out in clubs.  

IF YOU WOULD GO BACK IN HISTORY WHAT FASHION ERA WOULD LIKE TO LIVE IN?
The era I would like to live in is the era of Cleopatra. She looked awesome! I’m not sure if you can call that a fashion era though.

MY DE-STRESS TRICK IS …
My de-stress trick is sleeping or working out.  

OF ALL THE LITTLE THINGS AND SIMPLE PLEASURE IN LIFE,WHICH ONE DO YOU ENJOY MOST OF ALL?
The little things in life that I really enjoy is nature around me and having good conversations with friends and family.  

MY GOAL IN LIFE/MODELING
My goal in life is contributing to make this world a better place than it is today. I would like to see more children worldwide getting a proper education. My goal in modelling is working for Zuhair Murad and being on the cover of Brazilian Vogue.
