Meet the Model: Julie @ Work Agency/Scoop

Hot Eurasian alert.

Eurasians, hey?! Julie, signed locally to Work Agency, is a walking equation of 'European + Oriental = Amazing'. She has been in Australia studying and working for the the last few months, but is originally from Denmark, and her mother is Singaporean. We went into an alley near our office (already creepy) to have a talk and take some Polaroids. I accidentally lead her down McElhone Place, otherwise known as Cat Alley. Felines kept appearing as if from nowhere (even more creepy) and I think she may have been slightly freaked out. 

Ingrid Kesa: So Julie, how old are you? 
Julie: I'm 18-years-old.

You told me before that you've walked at Denmark Fashion Week. How were you discovered?
When I was 15-years-old I was asked by someone from Elite Model Management on the street to join the agency but I was too young, my parents thought. So after I was about 17 I sent my pictures to the biggest agents in Denmark and then I got contacted immediately by Scoop Models and got in. I've been at Scoop, my mother agency, for one-and-a-half years.

Do you prefer doing runway or editorial work?
I really like runway but also editorial I think is really fun too.


 

Have you done any jobs in Australia since you've been here?
Yes, I'm starting a brand new book here so I've done a lot of tests.

You mentioned you're studying at language school. What exactly are you doing there?
For the first three months I am doing English, a general English class, but in January I'm going to the business class for three months and then I will take the Cambridge Business Exam.

Well your English is very good, you must've learnt it at a young age?
Yes, because my country is so small we really do a lot in practicing our second language, so it's more actually for my writing.


 

Have you made many friends since you've been here?
Oh yes, Australian people are really open so it's not really a problem. Nobody knows each other here so at school you gets friends from all over the world, which is cool. 

What's one thing that you miss about home?
Right now it would be Christmas at home with my family because it's already snowing over there.
