How and when did you become a model?
Everything happened in August 2018 I sent my photos to an agency in Milan. From that moment on, this activity became a job to me.
What are your interests / favorite things?
I would like to be able to develop this profession and become a top model.
What were you doing before answering these questions and what will you be doing after?
I’ve done so many things. For example I sang, played basketball and I think that after this chat I will go to the gym and then I will study.
What’s the most difficult thing you have ever done?
Among the many difficult things, is certainly when people are talking to you but you’re unprepared. It’s really embarrassing!
Who is someone you admire and why?
Naomi Campbell and Dwayne Johnson also ‘The Rock’.
What is an issue or cause you’re passionate about?
I believe it’s absurd that in 2019 we are not able to ensure a dignified life for all and we still live in conditions of extreme poverty. It seems trivial but the cause I care most about is helping others.
Describe yourself in one word.

Tell us about your hometown?
Senegal is a beautiful city, full of colors and full of history. I’m proud of my origins!
What’s the first thing you do in the morning?
A bit of push-ups and abdominals.
Among your priorities, what’s the first between all?
Surely it’s my family: I know I am their first priority of all.
Seen or not being seen?
Your source of inspiration?
Ever since I was little, my inspiration has been my mother, the image I have of her that for me is a symbol of strength and femininity but above all of love.
Milan or Paris?
Are you scared that time will take away your beauty?
No, I will be beautiful forever =) .

Midnight snack or model diet?
I prefer to eat well, healthy and I don’t give myself snacks because I don’t like them.
“If I hadn’t become a model…”
Probably I would have gone to acting school because I would have liked to be an actor for cinema.
Do you use social media? Have you considered getting off from social media for a while?
Yes, I use social media like Instagram and I believe that currently a break from social media for me would not make sense even for the work I do. I abandoned Facebook, but with Instagram I feel very good as I can be in touch with everyone!
There is a travel ticket on the table, for where would you wish it was?
New York and London.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I hope like actor Dwayne Johnson.
Favorite song?
Wiz Khalifa – Holyfield.
