How did you first get into modeling?
With an online subscription to the scouting section of a modeling agency.
London or New York City?
London, for sure.
If you weren’t a model, what would you be?
I’m still young, as I’m 19 years old, but I’d like to work in the world of cinema or basketball.
Skateboard or electronic scooter?
Skateboard, of course.
How do you dress for a date? What about castings?
To be honest with you, it depends on how I wake up in the morning. For dates, most of the times I wear a polo and a pair of jeans.

That it’s a world exclusively made of appearances.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start a career in the fashion indus-try?
