Meet Ceval

Tell me a bit about yourself
My name is Ceval Omar, I'm 24. I am from Norway. I work as a model and have loved fashion since I was a child. I've been dancing since I was 6 − ballet, dancehall, hip hop and modern dance.
My mother had a restaurant with Italian and African food when I grew up, so I learned to cook by the time I was 9 and started to work in her restaurant.
I've lived in Trondheim, Oslo, London, Nairobi and Saudi Arabia and speak about five languages fluently. My star sign is Leo. I love animals and nature.

What makes you proud of yourself?
I have developed a strong sense of self confidence, with genuine kindness. I’m also proud of my love for life, and my understanding that life is short and precious.

What is the greatest challenge you are facing?
That many people around the world do not understand people like me, being transgender, and do not want me to exist. And helping them understand that we are all alike and equal.

What are you strengths?
Being an empath, my confidence and intelligence, my sense of self and my understanding of life and humanity.

What motivates you?
To hopefully, in any shape or form, make the world a better place by having better conversations, and through openness and understanding.

When you were 14, what did you want to do with your life?
I wanted to be a dancer and a creative director for a big magazine.

What do you wish you knew back then, that you know now?
That I always had it in me, and that we are all equally lost.

What pressure do you feel under – if any?
Being the first to do so many different things, because there has never been someone like me in this business. I represent so many people and I want to do right by them and do well. I want to open up for better conversations, so that we can educate each other.
