MSJ: Okay so Fabienne when did you decide you wanted to become a model?
FK:!And then almost 3 years ago I met a photographer who was interested on taking pics of me, first I laughed and then decided to give it a try. And I loved it, it was heaven! A dream comes true! Was so ecstatic , finally I was doing it. I did 4 shoots with that photog and just decided after that to pursue it, I might be old for the industry, I am not there to make money, I am not blind but I am having the best time of my life.
MsJ: What is your Motivation?
FK: When I was 14, i wanted to be a model ( see album sweet 14 on Facebook) but my parents were against it so to please them I stayed in school, but I always dreamed of it, runway was my favorite thing!!And then almost 3 years ago I met a photographer who was interested on taking pics of me, first I laughed and then decided to give it a try.Always recorded any fashion show, tire up pages from magazine with my favorites models etc...
