Hi, I’m Cecilie.
I was born in a small town in Denmark called Hillerød, growing up on the country side with my loving parents. Despite living in a small city, I always knew I wanted to do something big and being a little girl with a strong spirit, life was full of options.
At the age of 5, I was at a photoshoot for my parents and discovered exactly what I wanted to do. Sitting in front of the camera with the photographer humorously trying to guide my movements, my soul came alive. Without even knowing what a model was, there was no doubt in my mind that it was everything I was supposed to be.
Many years passed and I put my dream aside, influenced by Janteloven, the Nordic set of social rules that say one shouldn’t dream big or do anything out of the ordinary. Then, at the age of 9, I came across the TV show “America’s Next Top Model” and my inner spark was once again re-ignited. This time, the only obstacle was my own self-image. I didn’t feel as beautiful as the models in the show and wondered if I ever could become one.
Despite this, my dream was always in the back of my mind in one way or another. At the age of 18, I applied to some agencies and did a few jobs, but was nonetheless planning on going the safer route: education and a formal job. Until one day I could no longer bear having an unlived dream inside of me and decided to change my Life drastically.
At the age of 21, I moved to Spain to find myself. Still not fully believing that my dream could come true, I tried many different paths, but it was thanks to deep, daily meditation and intense inner work that buried memories surfaced and brought me clarity.
Living on new ground, separated from everything familiar, I relied on my own drive, vision, intuition and ambition to slowly create a new Life for myself, from scratch, in a completely unknown country. I gave up a normal, safe Life to pursue a dream but what I’ve gotten in return is simply incredible.
Having a clear direction for my Life has changed my mindset drastically. I know that achieving my goal has all to do with self-love and acceptance, and I’ve found a purpose in creating the most amazing Life for myself in order to inspire the world and everyone I come across. It has become a very spiritual quest to me, a Higher Purpose that pushes me to grow and move forward on a daily basis. My daily motivation is being a role model and positive example for all the girls and women around the world with unlived dreams. I know exactly how you feel, and I really love you all. This is for you!
After choosing my direction, I’ve been blessed to meet some very special and unique people who’ve helped me along the way and pushed me to become the best person I can be, both professionally and in my personal relationships. Finding true friends and mentors in my industry is helping me stay grounded during my journey. With the help of these people, my career continues to grow and change, forcing me to take one day at a time.
With my goal of moving to NYC and working with Victoria’s Secret, there’s still a beautiful path full of growth and adventure ahead of me. I know I could not do this without all the Love and support in my Life from the people around me, who continuously inspire me to become a better version of myself. Many days I still wake up feeling like the little, insecure girl with a dream, overwhelmed with gratitude for the journey I am on.
Despite my glamorous career choice, I’m still happiest and most comfortable being alone with myself in my early morning runs and hiding away in the mountains for a meditation. I love everything business related, entrepreneurship, growth, health, nutrition, dance and fitness, and continuously finding new ways to keep my body, mind and spirit in top shape.
I can’t express enough thanks to the people in my Life who believe in me, to my follovers and my family. Your daily encouragement and care are what keeps my spirits up and puts a smile on my face.
