How did you get into modelling?
Actually it was the girlfriend I had when I was 16 who made me apply. We were dating for like 9 months and she told me several times during our relationship that I would fit as a model. I didn’t really believe her but some time after we broke up I thought what the hell and sent my pictures to an agency here in Stockholm and believe it or not they wanted to sign me.
Who would you like to be in 10 years?
In ten years I think I want to be myself but with a plan… Right now I have no idea what I want in the future in terms of a job or an education and I feel that’s my only ambition in life: to figure out what I want. When I’m thirty, I don’t need to have a kid and a house and my dream job, I just want to know if I want a kid and a house and what dream job it is I want, if that makes sense.
If your house was burning down and you only have time to save one item, what you would save?Maybe its a boring answer but I guess my phone because it has all my pictures… Or maybe my favorite childhood stuffed animal, my bunny Io, cause he is irreplaceable.
What’s your dream day?
Hmm thats hard… I can’t pick the ultimate dream day! For me the best days are the ordinary good days. You know one of those days where the weather is nice and you wake up in a good mood. You have like one semi-important thing to do in the middle of the day and something planned with friends later in the evening. That way you can have a day without stress but with a purpose and feel like you have accomplished something but also something to look forward to.
What makes a good selfie?
I like a selfie when there is something funny or quirky or cool going on. Something in the background, a funny hat, a cool angle, just something that makes it more than a picture of a face.
