Model of the Week: Maja Lorentz
Hailing all the way from Denmark.
We caught up with the Danish beauty, Maja Lorentz and asked her a few things about her home town.
A-Z: Hello Maja! Welcome to Australia! Can you please tell all of us Aussies a little bit more about yourself?
Maja: My full name is Maja Lorentz Hansen, and I am 19 years old. I am from Denmark and my home is a small town called Greve. It’s south of Copenhagen and I have lived there all my life. When I’m at home I like to play music to relax. My parents taught me to play guitar and piano as a kid, which I am really grateful for today. One of the things I love the most is food. Even though I eat healthily, I like treating myself too by trying new and different types of food when I’m traveling, and to be honest - who doesn’t love food? My agency in Denmark is Unique Model and I am also with Sight Management Studio in Barcelona; ACE Models in Athens; Silent Models in Paris and Chadwick Models here in beautiful Sydney.
A-Z: How were you scouted?
Maja: I was scouted the first time when I was thirteen by 2pm in Copenhagen. I was really confused about why they wanted me to be a model? I was a young, insecure girl and I wasn’t into fashion or makeup at that time. I was with the agency for a couple of years but I wasn’t ready to work as a model at that time in my life. In the summer of 2017 I was scouted by Unique Models, which became my new agency. I started working as a model very quickly; and that has been one of the best decisions of my life. I really enjoy modelling and working with everyone on set.
A-Z: And now you're in Australia! How are you finding it?
Maja: I love being here. I knew right away I was going to enjoy it. The people I’ve met so far have been really friendly and kind. I live near Bondi Beach, in Tamarama, which is one of my favourite places to hang out. It makes me feel at home to be here, and I cannot be anything but happy.
A-Z: Have you tried vegemite yet?
Maja: Yes! I bought a jar because I had to try it but I don’t know what to think about it… I kinda like it, but at the same time, it tastes strange. But maybe it will grow on me?
A-Z: Favourite thing about your home town? Do you miss it?
Maja: I’ve lived in Greve all of my life. My favourite thing about Greve is definitely the memories and my family who live there. But I do stay in Copenhagen a lot when I’m in Denmark because there is not much to do in Greve. Whilst I miss being home I really enjoy being here in this beautiful city.
A-Z: What has been the highlight of your modelling career so far?
Maja: For me traveling has been the best part of modelling so far. I love seeing new places, experiencing the culture and food and meeting new people. I have had so many experiences that I wouldn’t have if I wasn’t modelling. It’s exciting and I am always learning. So far I have worked in Greece, Denmark and now in Sydney, and I hope to travel a lot more in the future. My Instagram is @majalorentz , which is where I post pictures of most of my work and my everyday life.
