1. How did you get into modeling?

Since a young boy l’ve always wanted to pursue a career in fashion, model and acting. I decided to change my lifestyle to reach my goals. I started training and eating mindfully as well as take care of my skin. Lots of friends and family mentioned that I should pursue a career in modelling but I never believed it’s possible. One day my sister mentioned it and this time around it all made sense as I finally had the confidence to give it a shot. I did a photoshoot and put my profile out there soon than later I signed a contract with Taylor Kelsaw Management.

2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?

I love to browse Pinterest and find inspiration on different things for example interior designs, fashion and healthy recipes for delicious meals. I enjoy nature and spending my free time outside reading a book and listening to music. I am currently in my final year of high school so a lot of my time goes into preparation for tests and exams.

3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?

I have family in Sweden and I decided to Tavel there all by myself. This was exciting but stressful. I enjoy catching flights and not feelings. Traveling Europe with my family is definitely a tick of my bucket list especially visiting Venice.

4. What’s your life motto?

„It is okay if you do not like me, not everybody has good taste“. In a big crowd of people I often stand out and I have learnt that it is okay to be different. Like my mom always says the highest trees catch the most wind.

5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!

I woud say my style is edgy and outgoing. I enjoy to express myself through fashion. My favourite fragrance is „Emporio Armani: Strong with you intensity“ and I often get complements if I wear this perfume. Tommy Hilfiger is my go to brand.

6. What genre of music best describes you?

I have a wide variety of music genres that I enjoy depending on my mood but the music that describes me best would be „pop“. I think „pop“ music tells a story which I can relate to in my life.

7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?

I am born and raised in South Arica in a town called Pretoria. My favourite thing to do is spending time with my friends and family over a bonfire and good music.

8. Name one celebrity you’d like to get naughty with!

I love Selena Gomez, she is true to herself and a great example to accept who you are and embrace your lives journey. She helped me overcome a lot of struggles in my life and to come out stronger.

9. Do you have any special Talents?

I think I have the ability to connect to other people instantly and make them feel special. I can easily chat to different types of people and relate to them.

10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?

Instagram is a great platform to express your style, personality and interests. This platform allows you to not only engage with people right across the world but is also educational and keeps you in the loop of the latest news and scandals.
