Something you can’t leave home without?
My phone. Not too original I know, but that little thing runs my life.
City where you live and where you suggest to go there?
At the moment I live in Rotterdam, depending on your plans you should check out the Witte de Withstraat for food, the Kralingse Plas for summer chillz and a sneaky dive, BAR or BIRD for live music and for clubbing Villa Thalia is pretty cool.
You are obsessed with … ?
Singing. I do it non-stop. 🙂 And music: The Weeknd, Lana del Rey, Tove Lo, Lady Gaga, MJ… This music is the soundtrack to my life, and I’m adding on a few of my own as I go.
Name a female hero you admire?
Dr. Jane Goodall, a famed primatologist, she’s also an advocate for global environmental and humanitarian change. A truly inspirational woman who spends 300 days a year travelling this planet to encourage humankind to solve the problems it has imposed on the Earth!
Night in or night out?
Tough… but I’ll choose a night in, working on my music and chilling in my studio with the occasional malibu cocktail to keep me nourished. 😉
What motivates you?
My own endless passion and creativity is pretty motivating in itself, but besides this the many wrongs and problems in the world motivate me to work for positive change. Using my voice and talents to share, inspire and awaken others.
Components of a good day?
On the perfect day I’ll do 30 mins of exercise, dance/sing another 30, drink 2 litres of water, collect some UV rays, cuddle with my kittycat, create some amazing new music in the studio, or design some pieces for my Star Dust lingerie shop. On a good day I manage at least one of these!
Your favorite quote?
“The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.”
Your favorite app at the moment?
Spotify, I don’t really use many apps… but the music is always on.
Describe wallpaper that is on your phone?
A picture of myself from a previous music video shoot. I believe visualization is a powerful tool and so I make sure to see the version of myself I want to be whenever I unlock my screen.
