How did you become a model?
I  was scouted by my mother agency at the same time they did the “elite model look” casting in a mall in Gothenburg. I was 14 and to young to participate but I got signed with them.

Who are your heroes in life?
I do not really have any heroes like that, but I do really admire Adriana Lima and Gisele Bündchen. They are both big role models for me and icons in the industry.

How would you like to be perceived by others?
As one independent girl with strong opinions who never gives up.

If you were not a model, what would you be?
Right now I would be studying economy in my hometown. After that, I would probably like to work as a lawyer or a judge. After modelling though I feel like I want to give acting a try. I love being in front of the camera and Its something that Im good at. Otherwise Im going to go back to my studies.

What advice do you have for other models?
To make sure you have a good agency who really believes in you. Be patient, have a personal style & use social media to get attention. Thats really important these days!

Always look your best when you are meeting clients. Nice clothes, nails, hair and skin. Give them a good first impression. Then you have to show them your personality and make them remember you. Just don’t try too hard.
