Q & A

Tell us briefly some background: How did you start modeling? Was there a special meeting that led you to where you are now?

I was “discovered” in downtown Hamburg at the end of 2011 and signed a contract with Modelwerk shortly afterwards. I was 15 at the time. My first job was the United Colors of Benetton campaign. In spring 2012 I met the casting directors Rami and Maida in Hamburg. They were the ones who booked me for my first show, the Dior Haute Couture Show in Paris, in the summer of 2012.

Who do you look up to in the industry?

Miuccia Prada

What‘s your favorite song right now?

I would like to visit New Zealand next with my sister.

I use a daily eye cream from Dr.Hauschka and the “Iris” day and night cream from Weleda. When I use make-up, I remove my make-up in the evening with Bioderma.
