Soraya Naomi: Career start with Germanys Next Topmodel
FIV: Hi first of all dear Soraya. We are happy to have the opportunity to interview you today. In 2017 you were a contestant on Germanys Next Topmodel. How did you get the idea to apply there?
Soraya: My family gave me the idea back then and encouraged me to take the step. I myself would never have expected to be allowed to take part for the first time and then to get so far.
FIV: Do your plans for the future include a modelling career or do you want to go in another direction?
Soraya: I would like to continue working as a model and be successful there. Modeling is my great passion, so I couldn’t imagine a more beautiful job for me.
FIV: Also in 2017, you uploaded your first YouTube video. How did you get started?
Soraya: I want to be close and authentic for my community. That’s why I try to share my modeling life with them as much as possible. I find YouTube to be a good channel to place the video footage of my travels and share it with my followers. Unfortunately, I have neglected my YouTube channel a bit lately, but will soon upload videos again regularly.
Tips: Skin Care & Makeup
FIV: You have several makeup videos on your YouTube channel. What are your ultimate tips that you would recommend to every girl?
- A good skin care with SPF or even a sunscreen as a base
- A BB Cream instead of a foundation
FIV: You also share skincare tips on TikTok. What are your tips for clear skin?
Soraya: Four tips for good skin:
- Cleanse the face well every evening, but not too aggressively.

- Drink plenty of water!

Soraya: My highlights were that I spent a lot of time with my family and I became more creative. I also got my vocational baccalaureate and my driver’s license this year.
FIV: You are also active on TikTok and your most watched video has almost 800,000 views. What is your recipe for success?
Soraya: I think my recipe for success is that I am who I am. I never pretend and share even the funniest moments with my followers.

FIV: What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re offline?
