What’s the most desirable quality a model should possess?
Curiosity and interest in discovering new activities, notions, or experiences through this vocation. I always keep in mind my first impressions on a job, and try to remind myself what I’ve learnt.
What’s your favourite childhood memory?
When I was about five years old, one of my uncles, who lived in Italy, came to visit us in Dakar. He gifted my brother and me AC Milan football shirts, and this gift really affected me and my childhood. In a short time, I became a huge football fan and was able to discover lots of other disciplines, including basketball, which I practiced for 5 years. It even allowed me to travel for summer camps.
Which do you prefer: physical books or e-books?
I’ve never been able to read an e-book, I think there’s too much distraction, for me, to fully commit and concentrate on reading. It’s pretty much the same thing with music, I believe we don’t fully understand and listen to music with streaming platforms. It’s become so simple and casual, almost mechanical. This is precisely the reason why I bought a turntable last year. I wanted music to become an activity on its own, like reading.
