Tell us about your background and how did you got into modeling?

I am a Phuketian born and bred with a German father and Thai mother. It all began when I had my first fashion show when I was about 6 years old. It felt like a dream come true for me. When I was about 13, things started to get serious. Modelling agencies started to contact me for work, not only here in Phuket but all around Thailand.

What’s it like, slowly becoming the face of Phuket?

It’s an honour because I was born here and Phuket is my home town. These past few competitions have opened up the opportunity for me to step in the spotlight for the general public. I’ve been modelling professionally for years and my name is known within fashion cliques; however, now people are starting to recognise me all around.

What contests were you a part of?

Miss Loykratong 2014 contest at Central Festival Phuket, during the Loykratong festival. I got first prize on that. The beautiful thing is, Loykratong, a tradition to thank the Water Goddess is an important event in Thailand. It brings me great pleasure as a Thai to be a part of something like that.

Mizsy Phuket 2014 contest was my most recent win. To wear the crown for this competition means the winner will be the presenter for Phuket FC. As Mizsy Phuket, I will be announcing news and events about our football club for the upcoming year.

What was your most memorable moment as a Model?

As a model I do photo shoots, fashion shows, act in movies and commercials. Gigs range from ads for various hotels, recently such as Iniala, Pullman and Angsana, to being a part of Channel 3 TV series. As a model it is often ‘catwalk time’ and I’ve walked for Playboy, Central Y Club, Diamond Thaweesuwan and may more. There are so many memorable moments working in this industry because I love everything I do. The most memorable was when I got to act in a Channel 3 movie called “Por Kai Jae”. I really got to see the work flow of professionals and experiencing working in front of a camera with other actors. Another was the Mizsy Phuket competition. It was joyful staying at Kata Beach Resort and Spa for three days, participating in loads of activities with them including a makeup class with Ustar, dancing performance with The Artist Phuket, spending time at Splash Jungle and many other things.

Where can you see yourself in the future?

I will always want to represent Phuket as it’s my heart and home but I do have bigger ventures in mind. First it’s going to Bangkok as that is the main hub in Thailand for the entertainment industry. Then off for some modelling internationally. Hopefully, I will be able to join and compete in Asia’s Next Top Model in the next season.

What advice can you give to someone who wants to get into modelling?

Be a genuine and humble person, it shines through! Work hard, lots of hours in the mirror, work on posture, speech, angles but most importantly go out and make connections. Do not hold off from opportunities because one thing leads to the next and the butterfly effect begins. The moment you doubt your dreams is the moment you lose, so keep pushing and don’t let imperfections lead you off your path of perfecting yourself.
