Manâl Ayoute managed to reach the final of Top Model Europe scheduled for February 17 in Brussels. At 19, this is the first beauty contest of the beautiful brunette.
« It’s my cousin who insisted that I should roll in. We both attended and we were selected. But I admit that initially, I did not think for a second that I would be selected because I was not prepared. I went without really knowing what I was doing, at least in the beginning, » said the young Belgian of Moroccan origin. The casting was held on September 18, before trainings started and semifinal were held on October 7.
For Manâl Ayoute, it all seams like a fairy tale. Today, the young woman is a high school senior and works with Rituals cosmetics during school holidays and weekends from time to time, as she explained.
Manâl views this contest first and foremost as « the opportunity to be spotted by fashion professionals and agencies and book a fashion session abroad to boost our experience, she says. You know, I’m already delighted to have come so far and proud to be able to represent my country, Morocco, through this competition. I want to make the most out of it because these are unique moments to live, while waiting for an opportunity to continue this great adventure « .
