Models 1: How did you get into modelling?

Adam Refoufi: It was quite a lengthy process. I was travelling with 4 friends around Thailand, Australia and Bali, and while in Australia I was scouted by an agency over there. My sister is also a model so that also opened my eyes to it.

M1: What were you doing before this?

AR: I was on a gap year after college where I studied business. But I didn’t really know what I wanted to do so that gap year turned into two.

 M1: Where do you like to go out?

AR: Anywhere that there’s good live music. I’m new to London, at the moment I go out in Dalston mainly, but I’m open to most places.
