Meet 17-year-old Kendall Masolva, our featured cover model in Vanity Teen Online! 

Born in San Carlos (a beautiful paradise in the northern region of Costa Rica), Kendall has received local attention after being discovered through social media. A casual picture of him unexpectedly became viral on Twitter and he was later scouted by The One agency. He started his new modeling journey recently, but he’s already achieving many of the goals he set himself.

A brief talk with Kendall:

How did you end up being a model? I was scouted through my Instagram profile, after it started to attract social media attention.

How would you describe yourself in three words? Extrovert, self-confident, happy!

What type of music do you like to listen to? Do you have any favourite songs? Even though I listen to a wide variety of music genres, I really like trap and rock. When it comes to rock music, I love Pink Floyd and The Artic Monkeys. My favorite songs from them are “Wish You Were Here” and Do I wanna know?” from those bands respectively.

Would you say that your life has changed since you started this new modeling journey? Yeah, it’s changed a lot! It’s been a complete new world for me, it’s super interesting and I REALLY like it.

What’s your favourite place? Are you a mountain, city or beach guy? I love the mountains, they really help me clear my mind but I also love going to cities.

Is there a model you really like right now? One you’d love to work with in the future? Barbara Palvin!

How would you describe Vanity Teen in three words? Authentic, spontaneous, professional.
