Hey everyone, I am Stephanie van Burk, originally from Switzerland but living in LA. I am a model for more than 30 years and an activist through a movement named #freeyourfear . I am here to help people feeling more self-confident with themselves and help them to deal with some difficult aspects they can go through.
Which is your proudest achievement so far?
I got scouted when I was on vacation at the age of 13. My first real job was a billboard for Mac Donald’s. However at the age of 6, I got casted for the European commercial of Milka chocolate. Then, I moved overseas and signed with Ford Models in NYC. I started traveling and working as a model all over the world.
What is the best compliment you have received?
The best compliment I received is that I am inspiring.
How do you motivate yourself?
My fans motivate me mainly. Well fans is not the right term, they are my friends. They are full of talent, kindness and beauty. Each day when I connect on social media, I have the most amazing messages awaiting for me. It cheers me up and in a second they already make my day.
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t had the time?
Discover the entire world. I have travelled in many countries but I haven’t visited it all.
If you could change one thing of the world, what will it be?
I would like to free people from their fears in order for them to live their life to the fullest as it should be. Fear brings up anxiety, insecurities, and many more negative aspects in the life of people.
Would you rather have the ability to fly or invisibility?
I would love to fly as I love to travel.
What do you not get about the opposite sex?
I don’t get why the opposite sex has more than we do. Women haven’t yet the same rights as men in many ways. After all those years, women aren’t equal yet.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Stephanie. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I would define sexy by being you.
