Alright, now for the interview! Firstly Renate, how would you best describe yourself?

Renate. Tell us ABOUT yourself. 

Our readers would love to get to know you more Renate. Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far.
I am Renate from The Netherlands. Since February 2017 I am in New York for my internship at a fashion designer. Besides that, I found out that I really like modelling, combined with fashion. I started searching for modelling jobs, and it worked out :)

Would you like to complete our full Editorial interview or skip straight to uploading your photos?
Keep interviewing me!

What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field Renate?
First I have to go back to school and graduate. I will continue modelling in The Netherlands!

How do you communicate with people Renate? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I am friendly and easy going. Sometimes too much, I always like everybody I met :p It is nice to be like that, but I don't have to forget myself. 

If you had to do it over again, what would you change Renate?
Nothing. My last half year in New York was seriously perfect. It was my biggest dream, and it came true!

Who is your hero Renate, and how have they helped you get to where you are?
Hmmm.. My parents. If they didn't help me, I would never go to New York. So I am so thankful for that. And my twin sister, she is my everything and hero for life.

How important are creative education courses Renate? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful?
Sorry, but I don't know what you mean with creative education courses.

Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry?
Be yourself. Sounds cliche, but I always thought you have to be arrogant to come somewhere. I am a calm person and made it here as well. So as long as you do your thing you will make it, also in New York :) Everybody can do it.
