"Never limit yourself"
When did it all start?
I started my professional career as a model when I was fifteen years old. Fashion has always been a part of my life from a young age, which motivated me to become part of the fashion industry. I signed with a modeling agency when I was fifteen years old, and then a second agency when I was sixteen. It all happened so fast for me, but gave me the motivation to pivot my further creative careers.
If you were an advertisement, what would your slogan be?
Never limit yourself
What does your career mean to you?
Career means to be able to feel liberated and disciplined within your own thoughts, ideas and mindset.
What is your main motivation?
My main motivation is the power of creativity— it keeps me going. You can never underestimate the power of creativity.
What is the part you enjoy the most? And the worst?
I enjoy being able to utilize my own creative freedom with the world, and also inspire others to navigate their own creative path. As a human, creative burnout is the worst part of my life as an artist, but it comes with the territory as a creator.
Who are your idols?
In case you need a break in your career, what else would you like to do?
I love doing yoga, it really rejuvenates my mind and my creative process.
Do you consider that nowadays there are more or less opportunities for new artists? Why?
I believe both— it’s how you apply yourself and utilizes your skills and abilities. In recent years, social media has been used as a powerful tool for networking and building your own connections as an artist.
What would your idyllic life be like?
Being able to see everyone’s unique and individualistic creativity shine through them! A life with no judgements and no labels. Embracing the undefined nature of artistic expression.
What are your next projects?
I plan on launching more creative projects pertaining to women’s mental health awareness.
