Exclusively Fashion Magazine:
by Tuomas Ahonen while shopping; can you tell me how you felt at
Andersen: I was very
young at that time and totally surprised because I
wasn't expecting it and I had never thought about being a
model before. It was so much luck that we met and
I was really happy about such a great coincidence and
such a great possibility.
What is your favorite thing about being a part of M4
The familiar atmosphere, the good
reputation of the agency and that they work only with
respectable clients and photographers, so I was never
working with bad or rude people.
What is your favorite thing about modeling?
My favorite thing about modeling is that it gives you
the opportunity to travel a lot. Through modeling, I've
been at many different places and I hope to get to know
more in the foreseeable future. Also, modeling is
really varied. With every new job you make new
experiences. There is always a different team, a
different location and different demands. It's
never the same, so it never gets boring. (smiles)
What fun thing do you enjoy when you're not modeling?
I'm still in school, so I spend a lot of time on
homework and studying. If there's some free time,
I'm doing sport most of the time or I'm spending time
with my friends. I love to do little weekend trips
to the sea or to an island and hang out at the beach.
EFM: In details; how has modeling
changed your life?
It sounds strange but it really
added a glamour factor to my everyday life. I had
so many different experiences, good ones and bad ones
and I learned a lot from the people I met; they are all
really interesting and creative and sometimes really
crazy, all that changed my point of view somehow.
It changed my plans for the future, of
course, that causes little disagreement with my family
sometimes. I still want to go to university, but
first I'm taking time out to focus on modeling.
Do you have any friends that are models; who are they?
Some friends at my school are
models too. One girl is a really good friend of mine
knew her for years before we started modeling.
There are also some really nice girls from my agency
that I meet from time to time and I'm keeping contact
with some girls I met during photo-shoots, jobs or
EFM: You were
Models.com Model of the Week; how did that make you
I felt very honored. I knew that website before.
It's really great that they liked my work and that they
picked me as someone to watch and I'm really happy about
Model lovers are getting to know 'Ann-Christin'.
Tell me something no one knows about you?
My cooking skills are very bad,
but I'm working on that .(smiles)
Before becoming a model; was there anything else that you
wanted to be?
I started modeling when I was
really young, so I hadn't figured out, at that time, what
I wanted to do in the future. And I'm still not
sure about it today (smiles). But, I always wanted
to do something with people or something creative; I
could never do office work.
What advice can you give to
aspiring female models?
I think it's important to keep the relationship to your
friends and family. Also, the job and the traveling
makes that difficult sometimes. My friends and
family have always been very supportive, which was a great
help, and they are the ones who keep you down to earth.
It's also important to care about
your health and about what you're eating, and that
you're doing sports to stay in shape. You should
always have a good attitude, even if it's very early in
the morning or very late after you work all day long.
