What she does: Model
What she has been up to lately:
Lots of shopping. I love finding unique items—it’s one of my hobbies. I am always walking around markets and vintage shops, trying to find very specific and special pieces. Even if I don’t wear them all, I just love to collect them.
What good energy means to her:
Most of it comes from people. Respect, fidelity, love, compromise—I like real, genuine feelings and when people are true to themselves. Also, from everything that is beautiful.
If she was a sound, she would be:
The sound of a piano.
A record that changed the way she hears music:
The wonderful Nicolas Jaar.

I never watch TV, only good movies. I’m reading a thriller from my favourite political book collection called The Kingsford Mark by Victor Canning.

I’m alone most of the time, because of my lifestyle. I get on very well with myself. I do consider it’s very important for everyone to have their own space, peace and time to think. Most people don’t seem to have enough.
