Hanna Baldursdottir started modeling, when she was 20 years old and lived in San Diego. A close family friend encouraged her to visit a modeling agency, where she ended up signing a contract.
For her modeling career, Hanna decided to move to Los Angeles and right after signed with another modeling agency in Milan, where she mainly did editorials and worked in showrooms for designers as Emilio Pucci.
"Although modeling can bring tons of opportunities and amazing work, I began to realize that it can be very testing in terms of self-worth. Constant rejection is hard on even the strongest of people. While it is definitely a love of mine, my long-term passions are health and wellness, specifically natural health and prevention. In addition to completing my 200 hour RYT yoga training, I am currently in school studying to be a dietitian. I am also doing an online interactive certification to become an Ayurvedic Wellness Consultant. I hope to use my platform as a model to spread knowledge of health and veganism!“
Hanna has been a vegan since June 2016.
„I began to open my eyes to the cruelties and injustices that are ever so present in animal agriculture and once I saw the truth, there was really no going back. Then I began delving deeper into the environmental, health and humanitarian benefits of adopting a vegan lifestyle and the culmination of all of these factors solidified my choice.“
