Please introduce yourself to our readers.
My name is Sandra Carina Khachab. I am a social media manager and model with a huge love for friends, family, fashion and travel. I was born in Germany but live in Lebanon.
Tell us about your education.
I grew up studying at the German school in Lebanon and pursued my Bachelors in Fashion Design and Fashion Business.
How and when did you get interested in modelling?
My interests in fashion, beauty, creativity and photography since I was 14 are what got me into modelling. Keep in mind that it is not my main career but modelling gives me good opportunities and experiences.
What was your first job? How did it feel?
My first ever job was shooting for a clothing line. It felt natural to me.
What was your most memorable shoot?
My most memorable shoot was shooting a music video with two class A famous singers in the Middle East. The video is to be released soon.
What does your role as a Social Media Expert entail?
It entails creativity, understanding business, communication skills and, most importantly, social media management.
What is your beauty regime?
My beauty regime is very simple – getting enough sleep, treating my skin gently and protecting it daily, eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, and trying to manage stress.
How do you stay in shape?
Due to my high metabolism I am able to control my weight, but I work out once a week with a personal trainer to stay healthy and active.
How would you define your personal style?
I now find myself loving more classic pieces that always stay in style and sometimes switch it up with body-con dresses, slit dresses and crop tops.
How many languages do you speak?
Three – English, Arabic and German.
What are some of your hobbies?
Travelling, exploring and learning new languages.
What are your favourite hang out spots in Beirut?
I just love trying new places in Beirut and I enjoy multiple places in Downtown Lebanon. It’s a classy and great area for shopping and dining.
What’s your favourite food?
Italian food would be my ultimate favourite.
What is your favourite city and where do you like to hang out there?
I can’t truly say which city is my favourite because there are so many wonderful cities! However, I do prefer cities with beaches and lovely weather.
What’s your favourite book/film/music?
My favorite book is, What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey.
I tend to read books or watch movies that either make me laugh or help me learn and grow stronger.
What are your future plans?
To learn, travel and explore more.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Forgive yourself for not knowing what you didn’t know until you lived through it. Trust your journey, learn, grow, evolve and become.
