The mystery girl who caught Justin Bieber’s eye has admitted she feels like she is ‘living a fairytale’ after she went from being a normal student to a catwalk model.
Cindy Kimberly was catapulted to fame after the Canadian superstar/man-child posted her picture on Instagram and creepily asked: ‘OMG who is this!’
His legion of fans soon identified the girl as a 17-year-old student from Denia, Spain, who the Daily Mail report was earning just £2.90 an hour babysitting.
Now, Cindy has revealed how the chart topper’s attention has changed her life.
The teen, who is still at school, explained how she has been plucked from obscurity to be a model and will be making her catwalk debut at Madrid Fashion Week next month.
It has not yet been revealed who has asked Cindy to model for them at Spain’s premier fashion show.
When I saw Justin was asking about me I got very emotional because I’ve been a fan of his for more than six years. It seems like a fairy-tale. A friend of mine often used to joke that one day I’d be one of the girls he talked about and I didn’t believe her.
My life’s changed positively since Justin appeared in my life. At the beginning I felt completely overwhelmed and didn’t know how to deal with it but now I’m getting used to it.
The teenager has gained hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram after Bieber said he’s a fan.
However, she says she intends to keep her feet on the ground and is concentrating on her studies despite all the attention she is receiving.
I’ve had a lot of job offers since all this happened. I’m constantly receiving calls offering me things, but I’m focused on my studies and fashion commitments I’d already made.
Cindy did joke though that she was sad that Bieber isn’t following her on Twitter. Come on Biebs, sort it out!
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
