You’ve probably already seen her picture once or twice somewhere on social media. We’re so happy to have Meta Gewald as one of our New Faces. Time to get to know this pretty girl a little bit better.
Tell us a little something about yourself?
I live in Haarlem but I just moved there this year. In fact I lived in Leiden for 14 years. Before that I lived in Ruurlo (somewhere in the countryside). Something that you might not expect is that I was born in Gaborone, Botswana. My parents lived and worked there at the time. We still go back sometimes in the holidays.
I’m in my second last year of my high school, Stedelijk Gymnasium Haarlem. I enjoy going to school, besides just hanging out with friends. On top of that I really enjoy shopping.
Are you a cat or dog person?
That’s actually a really fun question! Because on one hand I love dogs and I would say I’m a dog person, but on the other hand I share my home with 4 cats… So I’m not sure what that makes me.
What’s the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?
First of all I watch a lot of tv and Netflix. But to answer the question I think I watched Master Chef Australia the last time I watched tv. I didn’t put much thought in deciding what to watch. The beautiful creations, creativity and suspense catch my attention.
What is your favorite song in your playlist right now?
This question is way too difficult. Right now I don’t really have any. It changes every second depending on how I feel. But I will give you some of my all time favourites: Billionaire ( Bruno Mars ), Don’t you remember ( Adele ).
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
I can’t think of a specific moment. But I always end up talking to mannequins and strange people in stores when I think I’m talking to my friends…
If you could be any tv character in the world, which one would you be?
Blair Waldorf, because she has a never ending motivation.
Who is your favorite model?
Cara Delevingne! But I also just love Lily Rose Depp.
And last but not least, what if you would walk outside right no and find a lottery ticket that ends up winning €10 million. What would you do with it?
I always fantasize about these sort of things, so I kind off have a list. Probably €3 million will have to go to taxes. I would give my room a make over. Buy an enormous amount of clothes. Travel the world from spa to spa. Buy a sphynx cat. Buy tons of blueberries and red fruits. After all this me spoiling me I would give money to my family especially my sister. And I would give some to my best friends. I would set 2 million apart for study and a house. I think this leaves me with 2 million I would either start my own charity or give it to the following: Unicef, Oxfam Novib, Stichting vluchteling.
