GET TO KNOW DAILA
I started with modeling when I was 17 years old. I got scouted when I was 14, but I thought I was too young at the time. Years later when I turned 17 I signed up for the modeling competition of the Netherlands called ''Holland's Next Topmodel''.
My first shoot was with photographer Nigel Barker. This shoot was also during the modeling competition. I was very nervous and I did not know what to do!
While in lockdown I'm trying to sport and walk a lot. I'm also working on a cookbook with healthy recipes. Next to that I'm spending a lot of time with my mom and my boyfriend.
What I like the most about modeling is that I'm meeting new people every day and that I am able to travel to new places. The hardest for me about modeling is that I need to watch my nutrients everyday. It can be very nerve wracking when I'm gaining weight and that is really hard some days.
Wow... the best job I've ever done was working for Asos. I was already a big fan of the brand and one day I heard that I was able to work for them! I was so enthusiastic! It was really nice to work there, because everyone was super lovely. This was by far the most amazing shoot I've done.
These are the pictures from my most recent photoshoot with Michel Zoeter. He is a really talented photographer. What I like the most about these pictures is that I can see that I have developed so much.
I like to go to the gym most of the time. I’m also doing some exercises at home that I know work for me. And about nutritions... I love to find out what's healthy for my body. Since I've started with modeling I keep finding new recipes that work for my body.
8. What is your absolute favorite destination in the world?
Oehhh, I would love to work in London. It's really similar to The Netherlands and the people are always lovely. But my dream destination would be Cape Town or Australia. I would love to go there for work someday.
My favorite fashion brand is Nike. I can call myself a bit of a tomboy, so I love it to wear cool and sporty clothing.
Wow, I'm getting happy by the idea of my favorite meal!! My favorite meal by far is a pasta with truffle cream sauce and mushrooms.
11. Favourite item in your closet?
My favorite clothing item is my winter jacket. It's sooo big and warm it almost looks like a sleeping bag haha. I'm always cold in the winter and this jacket keeps me warm.
12. What is your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure is by far musicals...... since I'm young I've played in musicals so that's where my love has started. And I still love it to watch them!!!
I love the music of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. My parents made me listen to this music and I will never stop listening to them.
I'm the most passionate about social work. I did a study to work with disabled people and I still love it to work with them.
It makes me super happy when I have my morning mood and someone brings me coffee or breakfast in bed.
My beauty secret is to stay positive and be accepting. You can’t be perfect, no one is. When you're there to accept that, that's the moment to me that you're the most beautiful.
17. Name one thing you are really good at
I'm really good at acting. It also makes me really happy.
18. How do you balance your work and personal life?
That is really hard actually, because modeling can be very unpredictable. I keep telling my friends how the industry works and after 4 years.. I think they start to get that it is what it is.. It's not the easiest job to combine with family and friends.
My goal for modeling would be a campaign for H&M. When I was a kid, I loved this brand so much and I always thought... how do they choose these girls in the campaign..?? Now I know how this works and I would love it to make mini me happy.
Next to that.. I would love to be in a tv-commercial for a perfume or make-up brand.
20. In 10 years.. where do you see yourself?
In 10 years..... to be honest.. I don't know. I live from day to day and I will see what the future brings me??!
