I would say that i'm determined, motivating, imaginative and a team player.

Andre, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?

My Passion in my life is the dancing. I love to be on a stage and create my Showacts and mix the music for there. Sometimes I design the costumes for the Show, too, but this is complicated for me. :D 

I started as a Model with 14. I have my first Shooting in an agency, but it doesn't helps so much. So I create some accounts on a Model website like I took some of my Picture there, and then a lot of Photographers write me and asking if I was interested on a Shooting with them.

Who is your inspiration in life André? How do you keep inspired?

A lot of things inspiring me. Sometimes I listen to music, and then a lot of dance steps plays in my brain, and then I write that into my notice book. Or I look in Youtube and look at some Showacts; it helps a lot for creating a show. My inspiration in my life is Zaine Fierce; she was a Drag Queen in Hamburg.

We all make mistakes Andre; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.

If I was at the Bravo Mission Famous Camp, they teach us a lot in Modeling, Acting and Dancing. 8 People from 1200 candidate was going into the Camp, and I was one of them, but I don´t won. There was a Situation where I said that I have to do more to win.

Andre, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?

At first, I ask what they want from me, and as they imagine this because sometimes they all have a different idea from what they want, they can show me some ideas, or I bring in my ideas.

Please tell us Andre, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?

As a Model, it is Hard work, especially if you are self-employed. You have to stand out crowd and be persuasive in your work.

Andre, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

At my work in Vapiano, if I have some Ideas to create something for our Facebook pages.

Andre, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?

I was very Proud if I was one of the 8 Candidates from Bravo mission Famous because at the casting we have to show how good we were at Modeling and Acting. It was a really great time for me, and as they call me, that i'm one of the 8 Candidates from 1200, there goes into the "Starcamp".

Andre, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

I like to make a calendar with pictures of the Seasons of the year and me. It's a really creative work, but you have to put a lot of time in that. Photos have to be in different positions and areas. Sometimes it gets on your nerves and gets tired

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?

My advice is that you have to be yourself, love yourself and doing the right thing, to be a model. It's not important that you have muscles or be skinny. Important is your Charisma and that you are convinced of yourself.

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?

Of Course, it would be great for me to work with some brands like Nike, H&M and some Makeup Collection.
