What are your goals for 2020?

To really belong to my brand because I’ve been working on it for many years and to work with brands I’ve wanted to collaborate with since I started modeling. 


How did the onset of this year’s public health crisis change your outlook on life and/or work?

The international health situation has created a huge impact on the whole planet. Personally, the health crisis allowed me to take a step back on my accomplishments and my goals. I was also able to get closer to my family and realize its importance. My outlook on life has obviously changed. I realize that there are priorities in life and it is by staying united that we can achieve colossal changes.


What have you been reading or watching during quarantine?

I had a lot of trouble reading a book or just the news before the quarantine. The pandemic allowed me to take the time to read the news daily but also to document myself on subjects that I am passionate about, such as architecture. I also spend a lot of time looking for inspiration through fashion books or videos of vintage fashion shows like 90’s Mugler.


What have you learned in solitude?

I think it’s important in solitude to take time for yourself. What I mean by that is that it allows us to do a skincare routine or play sports, healthcare in general. But above all, take time on our projects and know how to question ourselves.  Constant questioning is what allows me to evolve in my social life, family life or even professional life. The moments of solitude are very important to me.


What’s the first you’re going to do after quarantine?

After quarantine, the first thing I would do would be to go to the beach. Just laying down the sand would suit me perfectly. I will surely read a book or fall asleep quietly. I think this is the only place I could really get a breath of fresh air. I grew up with the sea by my side. This is the only place where I see myself externalizing my feelings and emotions.
