Nana has already experienced a lot as a model

FIV Feature X CM Models

Nana: Thank you so much for asking me to do an interview! I’m represented by McFIT MODELS now and I’ve had three shoots as well. One for JD Sports Fashion and one for the sports brand ADIDAS and I walked for Samuel Gärtner at the Frankfurt Fashion Week. I also found a very good PR agency in Hamburg that supports me in terms of social media.

Tips for GNTM contestants

FIV: The new season of GNTM is starting soon, do you have any tips for the new candidates?

Nana: My tip to the new candidates: approach the shootings and walks with confidence and don’t give up! I fell (yes) in the last season of GNTM and that went through the media. I then just got up and kept walking. That can happen, but it’s not the end of the world.

Naomi Campbell as inspiration

FIV: Has modeling always been your dream job and what inspired you to become a model?

Nana: Even when I was little, I thought Naomi Campbell was great. Models like her inspired me – models with a strong charisma and personality. Also, many friends told me to try it and I enjoyed it from the beginning.

These are the goals of Nana

FIV: You are still relatively new in the modeling business, what do you want to achieve as a model? For which designer or brand do you definitely want to model one day?

Nana: I like sporty brands but also high fashion designers like Dior. It would be great to walk on a Dior show or to hang on a poster for ADIDAS or NIKE.

Nana’s Fashion Must Have

FIV: On Instagram you inspire your followers with your cool outfits. What inspires your looks and what are your absolute fashion must-haves?

Nana: So absolute must have is a hair cloth with which I can design my Afro hair perfectly in different hairstyles. Most of my cloths are plain and black or if I’m after an eyecatcher: then Leo.

Will Nana be on TV more often soon?

FIV: Finally, a short look into the future, we are curious what you have planned in the near future: Do you have big plans like a move or something similar or is there something special coming up? Give us a little teaser of what your fans and followers can look forward to in the near future.

Nana: My plans for the future are definitely to continue modeling, if not worldwide. I would also like to do shoots, for commercials for example, but I would also like to continue working as a presenter, maybe on TV. I also find radio exciting, and I’m thinking about studying journalism.
