Have you always wanted to be a model? If not, what did you want to be growing up?
Yes, it was my dream since a young age. I remembered watching the Victoria’s Secret fashion show for the first time. I was so amazed how beautiful and powerful all these women were. Since then, I wanted to become a model.

How were you scouted?
I took a few Polaroids with my best friend and sent it to my agency and luckily my agency replied and gave me a chance to become a model.

What is your favorite or most exciting aspect about being a model?
Definitely meeting new people and learning new things. Also being able to visit new places and cultures. And I just love to stand in front of a camera and receiving beautiful pictures.

Is there anyone that you admire as a role model and why?
I am a huge fan of Elsa Hoosk. She is so inspiring how hard she worked and what she achieved as a model and in my opinion one of the most beautiful models at this time.

What is your dream shoot/campaign?
Probably a shoot for Oscar de la Renta. I’m in love with their dresses and campaigns. It’s always super classy and chic. It would be such an honor to get hired as a model for the brand.

Biggest lesson that modeling has taught you?
Always be on time, be friendly and not too shy.

What’s the best life advice you’ve ever received?
Never care too much what others think about you, love yourself the way that you are and never change just to be liked by someone.

How do you stay in shape?
I try to workout at least 3 times a week. I love to go jogging or playing tennis with my friends. I also eat no carbohydrates and no salt but sometimes I add a cheat day on my diet where I allow myself to eat pasta or bread.

What do you think about fashion? What does it mean to you?
I love everything about fashion. It’s a great way to express yourself. Being able to dress, based on your emotions each day is so amazing.

How would you describe your style?
Actually, it’s different each day. I dress myself how I feel on that day. Some days very chic and classy and on other days basic and chilled.

Denim or leather?
Both. A cool boyfriend jean with a rocky leather jacket and you’re always good to go.

Heels or flats?

What is your guilty pleasure?
Sometimes I just like to do nothing the whole day. For example, I grab my laptop and a bag of chips and I just chill and watch Netflix and don’t get out of my bed.

When you’re not busy modeling, what are some of your favorite things to do?
I like to try out new things with my friends and family, like cooking new recipes from different cultures or visiting new places.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?
Hopefully I am a well-known model then.

Thank you Lisa, for taking the time to talk with us!
