Interview: Model Katie Kurie (Germany)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Katie, I’m 22 years old and I recently moved from Hamburg to Berlin.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
Really, I wouldn’t change a thing.
I’ve spend so many years trying to change myself for others
and for my own expectations and at the moment I’m pretty happy with the way it is.
How did you start modeling?
I fell in love with a photographer.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I think people underestimate it a lot, there’s a whole more to it than just being pretty.
I mean, it helps but it’s not like somebody talks to you on the street, asking if you want to be the new Calvin Klein Coverface.
But it’s a job like any other job, when you work hard, you get what you want.
What is your beauty regimen?
Smile. Really girls, don’t compare yourself to others and don’t try to look like the girls from the magazines, it’s all photoshopped.
Be happy, sleep enough and drink a lot of water (wine)
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I’m authentic, empathetic and loyal - qualities you don’t get that often in modeling.
And my humor is pretty special, but as long as my girlfriend laughs, its fine.
What are your plans for the future?
To have breakfast in bed on sundays, without worrying about monday.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
My favorite experiences always go together with the people I experience them with,
so a lot of them are just sitting together, having a beer or two, taking a few pictures and loving life.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Don’t change anything about yourself, you either fit into a campaign or you don’t, its not personal.
What do you think of the magazine?
You have good taste ;)
