We are happy to introduce you to model Caroline Dittmann. She was not only discovered while living in America, but she has been intent on putting her education first. We got to learn more when we spoke with Caroline.
You got started in modeling during your Au Pair year in the US, around 2007, and while living in Vermont. Share with us more about that time.
I came to the US for my year as an Au Pair; the modeling happened coincidentally. I was approached by a photographer in Burlington, Vermont, who offered to take my first pictures for my portfolio. He connected me to a boutique, local modeling agency. I started with a few small shoots for them, for example a fitness DVD. It was a lot of fun meeting new people, and it gave me the opportunity to travel around New York State.
When I got back to Germany, I felt I wanted to continue working on my portfolio and apply to modeling agencies, but I also didn’t want to neglect my education. I started my bachelor of arts in science of education and later my masters in media education.
I was able to take on modeling jobs during my studies, and, in my semester holidays. I even went to Turkey, London and Cape Town for a few months.
Did you receive any advice early on in your career that has carried you through to now?
