When did you start your career as a model?
I started when I was 15 years old and worked a lot in Sweden while I was still in school. I have been working full time since my graduation 2012.
Why did you want to be a model?
I was intrigued where it could take me. I love to travel and to meet people and modeling really opens up for that.
How is it different to work in NY compared to Sweden?
It a lot more on here. Things chances in a second and the opportunities are bigger. To go back and work in Sweden with Swedish artists feels very like coming home to your family. It was there everything started.
How do you spend your time when not working?
Cooking food is a big interest of mine and I love to invite people over for dinner or go out and eat breakfast, my favourite meal of the day. My studies take up a lot of time too.
I went to Iceland with an amazing team to shoot. The nature is amazing and we took a few outfits and left the car and went on a hike for a few hours, climbing mountains and finding hot springs. It was hard but so beautiful!
I love proper magazines that has good quality both in the content and also in the material of the magazine. ID magazine, LOVE magazine and BON are three favorites.
I love the cleanness and elegance from Calvin Klein and Jil Sander. Rick Owen makes amazing jackets and Cornelia Webb makes the best jewelry.
What is your favourite band right now?
First aid kit, their album is going on repeat!!
What is your favourite city?
I love NY. It has everything I need right now. But for more relaxed times I like Sydney a lot 🙂
Book/movie that changed your life?
I would have to say my own book. (cookbook). To go trough the whole process of making and publishing the book was amazing and then to see the final result and to see readers appreciate it is overwhelming.
Where are you in 5 years
I think I will still be working as a model but with a more stable ground in life with my own apartment and a dog etc. I wanna keep study so in 5 years I should have a lot of knowledge to keep working with nutrition and public health.
