Hi Erika it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Hi SimplySxy, it’s an honor to be here. I’m Erika Kristensen, a 21 year old Filipina-Danish fresh college graduate and model from the Philippines.
What is the best compliment you have received?
The best compliment I have ever received was when someone told me that I had a big heart. I won’t ever forget that, and it inspires me to do more for people.
Do you have any hobbies?
I do! During my free time, I usually watch movies and shows, bond with my dog, spend time with the ones I love, do fun shoots, and go to the gym!
How is your fashion style like?
My fashion style would lean towards being comfortable but also stylish, much like the brand which I’m an ambassador in, SM Youth! So a lot of jackets, denim, statement tees, funky polo shirts. It’s important for me to wear something I’m confident in but at the same time, comfortable so that it makes things easier for me to do what needs to be done during the day.
Which is your most memorable life experience so far?
My most memorable life experience so far was definitely winning the Second Season of the SM Youth Go See here in my country. It’s an online show which tests 14 finalists, if they are capable of being one of the Brand Ambassadors for SM Youth, a really hip clothing line for the youth. So every week during the season, we are tasked do to different challenges in relation to being a Brand Ambassador. It was such an honor to be part of the show. It was definitely a whirlwind of emotions, but the thing that I really cherished the most was being able to create long lasting friendships with my co-contestants.
Not once did it ever feel like a competition to me. I was just in awe of how much camaraderie and teamwork there was despite us being in competition with each other. And now since the show, I’m just really grateful and humbled to be representing the brand, most especially the Filipino youth of today. My ultimate goal was really to inspire the Filipino youth and hopefully I did just that. I’m proud to be a part of this family that incorporates and celebrated individuality into their brand – their campaigns always have a purpose behind it and I’m thankful to be a part of that feat.
Is there a food or drink you can’t live without?
I cannot live without chicken hahaha! Any kind of chicken, I eat it. I love chicken.
Where is your dream holiday destination?
Definitely South Africa! I love nature so much. I’m always down to go on long walks in forests and beaches (much like what I do when I’m in Denmark), go trekking and hiking, visit different animals. And I know that I could do all these in South Africa.
Funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
The first date should always be for getting to know your partner so a simple dinner in a nice, quiet restaurant where you guys could talk is the ideal first date for me.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Erika. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy for me is not about how you look, but rather the way you carry yourself. Confidence, wit, intelligence, action, purpose, and knowing what you want is what makes someone sexy.
