Q: Did you start your modeling career in Norway? Aren’t you going to pursue it back home or still traveling around?
A: I did a little bit of modeling in Norway but as I was living in a small town there weren’t much work. Also the market in Norway is very small and there are very few paid jobs, unfortunately. I still have my agency in Oslo and I would love to work more in my country. Though I don’t know anyone working full time as a model in Norway.
I started working seriously in Sao Paulo, Brazil at the age of 20 and that is where my mother agency is. I’ve got to travel around Brazil, meet new people and also learn Portuguese through my jobs there!
Now, I’m trying the Parisian marked and I’m also working on getting agencies in other countries in Europe. Right now there’s an agency in Hamburg, Germany who wants me to go there.
Traveling around is of course really, really nice and exciting, but I’m still planning to settle down and at least have my “base” somewhere (probably Paris) and then hopefully only do direct booking (the client book you directly to a job, you don’t have to go to any castings).
I’m also studying Business Management online as I know modeling wont last forever, though I’ve been told I have the look to work until I’m 30 years old. I would love to work as long as possible!
