How does it feel to represent the Netherlands at the 35th Elite Model Look World Final?
It feels amazing! I can still hardly believe it and I am very happy! I heard about the competition on Instagram and applied online to go to casting, I’ve learnt so much from the competition, mainly how important it is to be yourself and I’m really excited for the World Final and feel so grateful that I am able to represent my country and I am going to do my best to keep up track record in the competition.
Tell us about the Netherlands!
The Netherlands is an amazing country I think we are famous for our people who are very kind and helpful, I’d say we are also known for our cheese and our gorgeous tulips! Internationally people know of the Netherlands because of people like Johan Cruijff and also Vincent Van Gogh, and in the modelling world, Lara Stone - who was also discovered by Elite Model Look! I'm really proud of the Netherlands for the incredible infrastructure and the way that our country runs so peacefully. Dutch people work hard to make sure the Netherlands is an integrated and multicultural society which makes it such a great place to be.
