New York (Tadias) – Sarah Nuru, who was named Germany’s Top Model this past spring, hopes to make her New York Fashion Week debut in September.

It is rumored that Justin Timberlake may offer the 19-year-old a modeling gig for his fashion label William Rast, best known for its quality jeans.

Nuru said Timberlake had seen her photo and is very impressed:

“He has a photo of my view. This has given him so much that he immediately wanted to work with me,” enthused the model from Munich, whose parents immigrated from Ethiopia.

She beat out 21,000 contestants to claim the coveted Top Model title in Germany.

Tadias: Sara, thank you for your time and congratulations on your tremendous
accomplishments. How does it feel to be crowned Germany’s Next Top Model?

Sara: Thank you very much, I feel very happy. Yes it is quite amazing what is going on right now. It will probably take time until I really recognize this amazing development. But so far, it is a wonderful experience and right now a very exciting time for me.

Tadias: What does this title mean for your future career?

Sara: To be honest, the title is a great door-opener but I will not lay back and enjoy the title . I have a great chance to make the very best of my benefit. Since the 21st of May, the day I became Germany’s next Top-model, I was hardly at home, worked day and night and really enjoyed my new life as a model! That’s how I imagined it.

Tadias: This is historical in a sense that the media is saying that you are the first black person to be crowned Germany’s Next Top Model. Did you feel additional pressure because of your cultural background?

Sara: Well, I feel honored that you call it “historical”, but I wouldn’t make a big thing of it . For me, it is of course fantastic to be a black model. I’m very happy that I became the winner of Germany’s next Top-model beside so many beautiful and talented girls. I’m Ethiopian through my parents that’s a fact and I’m absolutely proud of it. But I can’t imagine that my skin color had a big effect for my victory at this show .

Tadias: Where do you see yourself in a few years?

Sara: It is quite difficult to predict a career, but I have a reliable agency and already great jobs and four big campaigns to work for. Of course, it is desirable for every model to be successful in the international model business. But I am someone who is down to earth and I, of course, will work hard and be calm and serene in attending to my ways.

Tadias: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

Sara: Thank you to everyone who believed in me. And, yes, just like I said stay true to yourself and never forget were you came from.

Tadias: Good luck Sara.

Sara: Thank you very much and all the best.
