Ever get tempted to get pulled into the party scene?
Meeli: Of course I like to party sometimes. But I never go alone and I'm very-very careful.
Have you developed any new interests since you started modeling?
Meeli: Learning new things. I guess modeling has encouraged me to be more experimental and try new things.
What are your favourite things to do in your free time?
Meeli: At the moment I don't really have free time, because I'm finishing high school right now. But normally I love spending time with my friends and family, reading, walking, having conversations with interesting people and there are many different kinds of sport that I just love.
Out of all the places your career has taken you, where was the most memorable?
Meeli: I think my all-time-favorite is Tokyo. It was the first place I went to and it was just an amazing experience. The people and the culture there are so different, but it's still easy to settle in and I'm hardly ever homesick there. I just love everything about it!
Do you have a mentor? Who? What is it about them that affects you? Why?
Meeli: I guess there are many of them. I try to learn from the people I respect and admire. Where do you see yourself in ten years? What could be your next career? Meeli: It's really difficult to say, but I hope that I'll have a happy family and I'll be doing a job that I love!

What would you want people to know about you?
Meeli: That I really assess open-minded pople who actually have something to say.
Any advice for new models? What advice would you give other models starting out?
Meeli: You'll have to deal with a lot of rejection, but that doesn't mean that you're stupid and ugly, you just may not be the exact type for the job. And also, it might be a competitive job, but don't be mean to each other.
