What three items would you bring to a deserted island and why?
I’d probably go for a solar power bank, my cellphone and prayer carpet. 
What’s your comfort food?
It can’t be anything else than pasta! 
Tattoos or bare skin?
Bare skin.
What’s your favourite season, and which season is it the easiest to be fashionable?
Definitely summer, because I can wear more fun pieces.
What’s your go-to cocktail on a date?
I don’t drink any alcohol, so I’d go for a virgin cocktail. 
Do you like to cook? What’s the best dish you’ve ever made and the worst?
I have to admit that I only have basic cooking skills, but my pasta dishes are to die for!

What’s your favourite TV show of all time?
It’s a german series called ‘Die Pfefferkörner’, which translates to ‘The Peppercorns’.
What did you dream of becoming as a child?
I’ve always wanted to win the Ballon D’or (E.D. French annual football award).
What’s your idea of a perfect day?
Sleeping in, and having breakfast without rushing. After that, I’d meet up with my friends.
Who’s your fashion role model?
Alpha Dia.
What’s the best present you’ve ever gifted and the best you’ve received?
I never celebrate my own birthday, so I don’t get any presents. Anyhow, I like to gift very carefully selected perfumes.
What’s your weirdest quality?
I’m really good at reading people even directly after meeting them.

What’s your weirdest quality?
I’m really good at reading people even directly after meeting them.
What’s your favourite thing to do on a night out with friends?
Watching football together!
What’s you favourite day of the week and why?
Friday’s my favourite one, because it’s the day of prayer and the most important day of the week in Islam, but also because the weekend starts on Friday!
Do you stay up-to-date with the news?
I really try to, although it becomes difficult when I’m travelling.
Sweet or savoury?
Definitely sweet!
What’s one misbelief that people often have about you?
It’s that I’m arrogant when it’s only because I’m actually shy at first and need to warm up to you.
What’s you favourite piece of clothing in your wardrobe?
My essential sweater.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
It’d be to teleport.
