Where are you from?
I’m from Tallinn, Estonia. It’s the capital city.“

What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to participate in anything theater-related. I love acting, and I take acting classes after school with my friends. I also love to take art classes and go to art museums whenever I can.“

When did you start modeling?
I first started modeling when I was 15 years old. Other than my test shoots, I was involved in a campaign for a bag brand when I was 16.“

What has been your favorite memory in modeling?
I would definitely say this photoshoot I did for Valentino. It was in a big beautiful mansion in Milan. It was lots of fun and it was a really cool setting.“

Who is your favorite designer?
I’m a big fan of Virgil Abloh. I really like Off-White and everything he’s done with Louis Vuitton as well.“

What is something that we wouldn’t know about you?
I have acted in three movies in Estonia!“

What are your plans for the future?
I would like to go to university. I’m not sure if I want to stay here in the United States, but definitely abroad.“

Do you see yourself working in fashion 10 years from now?
I think so. I have always loved fashion and it has really been apart of me my whole life from the time I was a little girl.“

What would you like to do next in your career?
„I would really like to be the first face in a show.“

What is your favorite thing about New York?
The fact that there is a good restaurant on every corner. There’s always something to do here, so you’re never bored.“

What are some of your favorite places to travel to?
I love traveling to London. My family has a home in a town called Estepona in Spain. It’s on the southern coast and I always like to swim on the beach when I’m there. During the summer, whenever I have shoots in different places in Europe, I’ll just stay in our house and travel from there, so it’s really easy.“

Who are some of your favorite artists?
Van Gogh. I have always been obsessed with him and his paintings. I haven’t been to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, but I have seen ‚The Starry Night‘ in the Museum of Modern Art here in New York. I’ve researched him and read books about him, as well.“

How do you balance everything between school and modeling?
Well, going to school while modeling is difficult, mainly because of the scheduling. It’s not easy trying to make sure I always get good grades and still maintain my appointments, but if I have exams during a week for school, I’ll tell my agent I’m not available for shoots during that time. My parents and friends are always really supportive of me, and because of them, they help me stay positive.
