Q & A

How did you get into modeling? Was it your dream?

I actually didn’t have that typical childhood dream. My first modeling experience I had with my mother in 2017 at a photo shoot for Brigitte magazine, the theme was mother/daughter similarities. My mum has quite a lot of friends in the business, that´s why we got asked. I really enjoyed that. Shortly after, I had two small shootings with photographers in my hometown – actually with no intentions. When my mother posted one of the pictures on Instagram, I was contacted by MODELWERK and got invited to Hamburg. I thought –  why not? And I’m really happy that everything turned out like this.

Which job will you never forget – and why?

My very first catwalk job at the Berlin Fashion Week in 2019 … I was so happy to do a show and found out only shortly before, at the rehearsal, that I would open the show. The excitement, the adrenaline and the moment of stepping out – when the music started, the lights and all eyes were on me are unforgettable.

Do you have any secret talents we should know about?

I have a pretty good sense of direction. That actually saved me from getting lost and finding the fastest way quite often on days full of castings in foreign cities like Paris. Even when I’m with my friends, I’m always the one who has the knowhow, haha ​​…

If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?

First of all, of course, I would wish for world peace! But I would also change something in people’s mindset – to create more awareness and respect for the earth. This is getting more and more important to me, especially when I think about my future and other peoples.

Is there any advice that has really helped you?

To always be polite and friendly and not take things too personally!

What do we find in your fridge?

You will always find lots of fruits and vegetables, all the ingredients for delicious wraps and for sure dark chocolate. I eat vegan and like to try and come up with new recipes to convince the rest of my family as well.

Which designer is likely to dress you for the rest of your life?

A whole closet full of cool blazers, jeans and basics by Celine would be awesome.

Where do you see yourself in 2030?

I don’t know and I don’t even want to know or plan, where exactly I´m going to be. If only I´m happy with what I’m doing! But to model successfully, would of course not be bad either, haha…
