Can you tell us a little about you?
I will be 18 years old in September. I live in the province of Namur. I have just ended my studies in secondary school and I’m studying to become a primary school teacher. I practise tennis and fitness.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
My feet; I find them too big even if I am size 39.
How did you start modeling?
With my best friend, I joined a beauty contest - TOP MODEL BELGIUM - and I was lucky to win this competition in the model category (which means I got the vote from the audience and the jury). I won a trip to the Caribbean to realize a professional portfolio. These pictures were downloaded onto social networks which allowed me to meet professional photographers and modeling agencies. Up to now, I’ve been working with Be My Models and I’ve carried out several photo shootings with great photographers.
What do you think of your job as a model?
I am a beginner in this job but it is already a real passion. I am willing to take every advice from professionals in order to make progress as fast as possible.
What is beauty according to you?
What is beauty actually? How would you describe beauty?
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I am a dynamic, natural, cheerful and ambitious person
What are your plans for the future?
I would like to parade for fashion designers and to work for a famous cosmetics brand.
What have been your favorite experiences so far?
The Finale of Top model Belgium which took place in Lido in Paris; parading in such a place was magical! Every photo shooting has been unique and a new experience. My first contract with Be My Models was also a great and rewarding experience.
Do you have any advice for those who would want to start modeling?
They should realize a portfolio with professional photos to get started
What do you think of the magazine?
I admit that I did not know about this magazine before but I find that the concept is very interesting. Modellenland tells about fashion and everything around it. It gives beginners like me the opportunity to be known in several countries. Thank you!
