If you would ask anyone about me, they will tell you that I'm always happy. I always smile and like to make others smile. Unique will be that I can take your sad feeling away and turn it into an amazing one. That's my thing. Make you feel the real deal.. like I say in Dutch: Als ik naar je lach, heb jij weer een goede dag!!
Moena, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Model?
A photographer found me. She was so excited it made me excited. We had this wonderful shoot, and that's where I found myself — the poses, the work, brainstorming about the location etc.
Who is your inspiration in life Moena? How do you stay inspired as a Model?
The people in the world are my inspiration. So many different cultures make it great!
We all make mistakes Moena; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
I let years go by before finding out what I wanted to do. Didn't listen to my feelings.. so from now on everything is Yes I Can!
Moena, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
Open, friendly and hard working. Love to brainstorm together so the project we're working on will be perfect!
Please tell us Moena, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?
Planning!! For everything and everyone! Some days are for work and some for friends and family.
Moena, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
The last shoot I had. We wanted an artistic look. So I worked my butt off to learn different poses and looks. The outcome was great! Exactly how we and most I wanted to be.
Moena, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
In a Dutch magazine Libelle. A great shoot with my long hair!
Moena, 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'm writing a sort of biography about my work in a coffee shop. A real Dutch one. Al, those sunny stories are great to read. Difficult to find out what is the thing people are excited to read. I think I've managed so far.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Don't take no for an answer!! Just keep moving forward. And never forget to keep your head up!!
