When you hear the word ‘attractive’, what’s the first thing you think about?
The first thing I think about is beautiful and good looking.
What’s one thing you constantly are forgetting and one thing you never go without?
Something I always travel with is a book. I love my books, but then I always forget to read them… but I’d try to read them still!

If you had a superpower, what would it be?
If I had a superpower, it’d be super speed, so I could be as fast as the Flash.
How did you feel the first time you were hired as a model, and what was the occasion?
The first time I was hired as a model was in occasion of a Jil Sander’s show. I was really excited to work as a model, but since it was my first time walking a runway, I was also a bit nervous.

What’s your best memory linked to this profession?
My best memories linked to modelling are the times I opened the Off-white Fall-Winter’20 show and closed the Balmain Fall-Winter’20 one.
If you were a mood, what one would describe you best
I’d say ‘goofy’.

Tell me, what does ‘home’ mean to you?
To me, home is a safe space and a comfort zone. It’s a place where I
can live with my family and have fun with my friends, a place where I
can build memories as well as future wealth. It’s a place where I can be myself.
What’s your favourite song?
My favourite song is ‘Common Person’ by Burna Boy.
