Your Dream modeling Job?

What is your downtime like?
Training and spending time with family and friends.

What do you enjoy the most in life?
I really enjoy seeing improvements, like reaching a goal of mine. But If I think more carefully I realize that the things I enjoy the most are things I often take for granted, such as having a family, having friends to go out with or having a healthy body and a clear mind. The tricky thing is that you don’t realize how much you enjoy these things until they are missing.

8

Have you set any objectives for yourself in regards to your life and career?

I still have no clue what I want to do when I “grown up”.

Name three places that you want to travel to.
Earlier this year I travelled around the world for 5 months, so I’ve been here and there. But currently I would like to be in a place I could relax and do some skiing. So the three places would be Austria, France and some place in America with skiing hills.

9

What are your beauty essentials?
My face cream witch I use every time after shower.

A quote that sums you up: “make love not war”.
