“Don’t get too upset about negative thoughts and comparisons. Be lenient with yourself. And if you want something, don’t waste your time: life is just one.” – Magnus
“I have abandoned the comfort zone many times: I left Antwerp for London; I launched myself into the world of fashion without a parachute and without knowing where it would take me; I faced the change of sex socially and surgically; the story on social media with extreme authenticity. I always try to overcome my limitations. The important thing is to make pit stops every so often, to check that the direction is right” – Magnus
“Being born a transgender is not a choice, nor a fault. Too often, minorities are exploited by an industry that does not really integrate diversity” – Magnus
