Could you introduce yourself in a few words?
My name is Nadine Leopold, I’m from Austria and I’m a model.
How long have you been modeling for?
It’s been over 10 years now! I started at 14.
Where are you isolating and with who?
I’m isolating in London with my boyfriend and two dogs.
What is your number one way to pass the time during the quarantine?
I have a podcast called 'I Choose Me' so I’ve been taking time for that!
What do you do to stay positive?
I spend time with my dogs. A lot of Zoom catch up with my friends and family and that helps.
Did you improve your cooking skills?
I’ve been cooking a lot. Especially my healthy banana bread. It’s oat flour, bananas, vanilla extract, coconut sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and wild blueberries.
Have you done any new form of isolation shoots?
I’ve been trying to get creative and bought a ring light and have been working on some shoots. It’s been interesting.
What is the first place you want to visit once the world opens back up?
Italy!! I live the people and food.
Do you think the world will ever be the same?
I don’t think it will ever be the way it was, I think people will be a lot more conscious of body contact.. also I can’t imagine concerts, etc.. but I’m sure there will be a new normal that we’ll adapt to really quick as well.
