Model Sigrun Eva Jónsdóttir has worked as a model in New York for almost six years. She's been registered with model agencies Wilhelmina Models and now Women 360 Management and has appeared in commercials for Rag and Bone, Adidas and GAP to name a few. 

"I was discovered on vacation in New York with my parents. We were shopping in SoHo when a model scout spoke to me and gave me his card. I met with Wilhelmina models shortly after. The following summer, when I was 19, I worked as a model and then moved back to Iceland to finish college. After completing college I moved back to New York."  Jónsdóttir now has an American boyfriend and she's happy with her chosen career path.

"I love working for GAP, I was in a shoot for them in Los Angeles in November. I ultimately enjoy most when I get to work with interesting, nice people. "

„I've lived here for six years and I love working in New York. The money is good and there are plenty of opportunities.  I like the fact that now companies are starting to use models of all kinds of shapes, colours and sizes. "
