04.03.08 MODEL OF THE WEEK: JOSEFIN HEDSTRÖM The Swedish teenager climbs the charts and snags a Benetton campaign with David Sims along the way
Josefin Hedström (Ford NY) Age: 17 Hometown: Gothenburg, Sweden Discovered: By an agent from Modellink in Sweden when I was with a friend in a mall. Favorite food: Since I live on the west coast, we have excellent fish. So my favorite food would be any kind of fish. Favorite drink: Diet coke and water Who are your heroes? I don't really have any heroes but I admire people who have goals and know what they want in life. I admire my sister who is smart, beautiful, and has a great sense of humor. What is your earliest fashion memory? That would probably be when I was fifteen and went to Tokyo all by myself. That was my first real travel as a model and I loved it! Where do you see yourself in ten years? In ten years I have no clue what my profession will be, but after I have finished school I hope I can continue my modelling and get new experiences. Since a model's career isn't life-long, I want to go to university afterwards and probably move back to Sweden after a few years abroad.
