INTERVIEW / KOKO NTUEN
Who are you going to be for Halloween?
I’m thinking of dressing up as Jem from Jem and the Holograms. I haven’t decided yet though.
What is your dream Halloween costume?
I have no “dream” costume. I usually end up dressing up at the last minute. But one thing I strive for is dressing as something other than what people expect: sexy nurse, sexy vampire, sexy athlete…you know the rest.
What is the last song you listened to?
“Tangled Up In Plaid” by Queens of the Stone Age
What do you think of reality tv?
It reinforces stereotypes and promotes an audience of passive thinkers and receivers of media messages rather than active thinkers that construct and deconstruct media messages of what is being represented. Sorry for that.
What is your dream campaign?
I haven’t asked myself this question before. But thinking right of the bat I think it would be Givenchy. I think I would make a right model for their campaign. ;D
What do you do other than model?
I’m a psychology graduate student, currently in my final semester of my doctorates studies.
What is the scariest movie you ever saw?
THE SHINING. It kept me in suspense during the whole film.
What is the scariest thing that ever happened to you?
I think I am lucky to say that I haven’t lived through many “scary” experiences. The most recent that I remember happened a couple of weeks ago when after a late night class I got to my car to find out that a window was broken and some stuff was stolen. I had parked it in a dark place and when I noticed the broken glass in the backseat my mind started imagining the person who broke in hiding in the back trunk. It was a very scary moment where I felt very vulnerable.
What are you going to do on Halloween?
Going to a house party whose hosts celebrate Halloween every year with the best party.
If you could stalk anyone who would it be?
I don’t think that it would be fun to stalk on anyone. But maybe it would be fun to go around with some who travels the world as a living having the opportunity of meeting new people and new customs. Hmmm, can’t think of someone now though.
Who is your favorite celebrity?
I don’t have a favorite celebrity. I don’t tend to follow on other peoples lives and prefer to focus on my own experiences. Someone I admire though is Sara Ziff for her efforts on creating a community for models (Model Alliance) where their needs are heard and public policy is demanded.
What do you do in your free time?
I have little free time between my studies, my job and the modeling. So in my free time I like to share it with the people I love doing the things that make us happy.
