What do you love most about modelling?
I love to see myself in different styles and emotions. With one picture you can express a whole story.

My biggest success was the first place on the Salsa World Cup in Moscow. Furthermore I won the German Championship Salsa 2011. I took part in differnet TV Shows. For example I reached the seminfinals of the Netherlands TV Show Beat the Best in 2012 and the seminfals of the Pro7/SAT1 production Got to Dance in 2014. At the moment I have a new project with the Breakdance-Duo Tom2Rock. In our new show we are presenting a mix of Breakdance and Salsa.
Tell us about some of your recent shoots.
Recently I had a shooting in Hannover for winter fashion. We took some nice pics in the center of Hannover. The sun was shining and I enjoyed the feeling in this moment.
What really goes on behind the scenes as a model?
In the moment when the photograph is taking the picture, you have to look absolutely perfect. No one can see, if it is extremely cold outside and you are freezing or if your feet hurt, because to hold the pose is very hard. But in the end it is a good feeling to see the results of the shooting and then I am always motivated to go for the next shoot.
Which photographers in the industry do you most enjoy working with?
I liked to work with Matthias Reinsdorff and Andreas Lins
Define your personal style.
My style is very energetic. I love dance poses. And I love to take photos where I can show how happy I am in my life.
Who would you say is your 'style muse'?
I am always looking for to create my own style. I am wearing what I think looks good. I find inspirations in magazines or in the internet but I do not want to copy a style.
Your favourite designer is… ?
I don’t have one.
Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar?
Is there any particular designer piece you are crushing on right now?
What do you hope to be doing in the next 5 years?
I will go on working on my project with Tom2Rock. I started singing and I am going to work on my musical career in the next years. And furthermore I hope to have some shootings for fashion magazines for example. I like doing shootings for sportwear.
If you could be anywhere else but here, where would you go?
I would love to go to Cuba one day. I heard about that they are dancing on the streets there. I would love to join this beautiful lifetime with the people there.
