what are you really good at?

my strength lies in being genuine and open about myself, my ability to be unapologetically creative, always looking outside of the box, and also being a very quick learner

what do you do besides modelling?

acting for both film and theatre, dancing (contemporary, voguing, experimental, commercial), writing scripts and stories, directing films

who are your lgbtqia+ role models?

i try not to have idols in my life, but I think when I saw Xavier Dolan's films I felt represented both as a queer person and as an artist. i look up to such drag queens like Sasha Velour and Trixie Mattel who combine art, humor and statement. i also am a big fan of the art of the XX, Century and such poets like Mikhail Kuzmin or artists like David Bowie and David Wojnarowicz shape me everyday

what makes you get out of bed in the morning?

i make myself a perfect breakfast before i go to bed, so one thought of having it in the morning with fresh berries and coffee makes me get up
