Interview: Model Axelle Deleu (Belgium)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Axelle Deleu, I am 21 years old. I am a medical student in Ghent (Belgium). In addition to my studies, I can often be found in front of the camera, because this year I am the new BOBO face 2023. I was a model for several clothing brands when I was very young and I always really enjoyed posing. Further I also enjoy sports and nutrition, but I can also enjoy a drink with my friends from time to time.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I've always had some insecurities about myself, but I think it's bad to say that something really needs to change. I would rather say that I need to learn to accept these insecurities...
How did you start modelling?
My mom had some girlfriends with clothing stores and that's how I started shooting at an early age. After that it remained silent for a while, but I always loved being in front of the camera. Now this year I am the BOBO face of the big company BOBO tremelo/erpe-mere. I hope that this opportunity will allow me to grow more.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I would like to combine it with my studies, but I don't think I would go for a modeling career alone.
What is your beauty regimen?
In the morning and evening I have an extensive skin care routine with Mesoestetic products. I also often put on masks. I also try to radiate from the inside out by eating healthy and drinking lots of water.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I think I am a very driven person. I am always someone who gives it 100%, as with my studies. Now I also really want to grow as a model.
What are your plans for the future?
I think above all a good job that I like to do. Continuing my passion as a model. I hope that after BOBO I can enter into many collaborations. I also want to progress even more around fitness and nutrition.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I think the whole competition to become the BOBO face. There were so many pretty girls participating. It was also something I had never done before. I never saw it coming so I was really pleasantly surprised. Furthermore, the entrance exam to study medicine was also a very exciting experience.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
It's a bit cliché, but just really believe in yourself. I never saw it coming that I would be where I am today :)
What do you think of the magazine?
I think it's a really good magazine to give everyone opportunities to grow. It's also nice that we get to see more about someone than just a photo, but also a bit of their life story.
