River, I'm flattered you accepted to be
interviewed for my online magazine, to start this interview
off, please give some background information.
I'm flattered you want to interview me. I was born
in Ibiza, Spain but I moved to Finland when I was a
kid and lived there for about 4 years. My mother is from
Finland, she used to be a model too. After those 4 years
in Finland I moved to Spain, first I lived in Canary
Islands for about one year and after that I moved to
Madrid, where I currently live. My father is from Spain
and he used to be an actor and a professional golfer.
have an older sister, her name is Luna and she is 19
yrs old. I wasn't a good student so I decided to give
studies a break and start modeling to see how it goes,
so let's see...
-How did you get into
modeling? Was it easy or difficult for you to be convinced
to become a model?
As I said before my mom
was a model and she introduced me to this world because
she thought I had potential, it was quite easy to convince
me because I hated school, so my mom had to convince
me to keep studying at least until high school, so the
decision wasn't that hard...
your family and friends think of your choice to
pursue a modeling career?
Well my parents
would have liked me to finish high school, but I think
they are proud of my decision. My friends still don't
believe it, but they're supportive.
was your first assignment as a model? How did you feel
My first job as a model was an
editorial for HERO MAGAZINE, I enjoyed the shoot, the
photographer (Carlos Vazquez) was really nice and
also the stylist and make-up artist. It was summer during
the shoot so it felt good to be outside in the park.
you are very young, your modeling career is going very
fast, did you expect to become so popular in such a
I really didn't expect everything to work out so well,
my mother agent told me that the beginning is always
hard, but I enjoy my job and I don't think it's a hard
job the only hard thing is being so far away from my friends
and family but I don't really care about being popular
or not, I just enjoy my job and I'm thankful for having
-What are some characteristics
of your personality? Which adjectives would you use
to describe yourself?
I think I am
funny, kind, happy, optimistic (sometimes), determined,
confident and some bad things I wont mention.
-I know you're currently in
NYC, tell me what was your first impression of this
city and what do you miss most about your hometown?
yeah, currently I'm here in NY my first impression about
the city wasn't so good. NYC is not how it is in movies.
I miss all of my friends and family so it was quite
hard for me to move here but thankfully I met one of
my roommates (Nique Jenkins) who was actually nice
to me and he made my visit more enjoyable.
you like to travel? Where did you go on your last vacation?
traveling, that's the best part of my job, because I
know there is alot of people who don't get to travel
in their lives so I'm thankful about that. My last vacations
I stayed in Spain, I went with my friends to Valencia,
to the FIB (International Festival of Benicasim) and
after that I went to Marbella with them for about 1
month to enjoy the beach. After that I went to London
to really start modeling.
-What is your
favorite sport? How often do you play it?
I was a kid I used to do all kinds of sports, soccer,
tennis paddle, swimming, martial
arts...but now that I started working I can't do none
of those sport as much as I would like, I go as much
as I can to the gym and swimming, that's all I can do.
again for taking the time to reply to my questions,
good luck with your future challenges!
you, No worries, it was a pleasure!
