Ann-Christin Andersen

 Exclusively Fashion Magazine: You were discovered by Tuomas Ahonen while shopping; can you tell me how you felt at that moment?

Ann-Christin 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.

EFM: What is your favorite thing about being a part of M4 family?

ACA: 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.

EFM: What is your favorite thing about modeling?

ACA: 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)

EFM: What fun thing do you enjoy when you're not modeling?

ACA: 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?

ACA: 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.

EFM: Do you have any friends that are models; who are they?

ACA: Some friends at my school are models too.  One girl is a really good friend of mine and I 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 castings.

EFM: You were Models.com Model of the Week; how did that make you feel?

ACA: 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 it.

EFM: Model lovers are getting to know 'Ann-Christin'.  Tell me something no one knows about you?

ACA: My cooking skills are very bad, but I'm working on that .(smiles)

EFM: Before becoming a model; was there anything else that you wanted to be?

ACA: 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.

EFM: What advice can you give to aspiring female models?

ACA: 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.
