Friends and family were my inspiration plus I’m into fashion and shopping. I always like to be up to date with the latest trends.

INfleur: Let’s get a bit personal. Are you seeing anyone? Married? Kids? How do you balance your love/family life with modelling?
Khaled: Actually I’m single. I love making friends more than lovers and in my free time, I always try to stay near my family because they are my backbone.
INfleur: Tell us something nice you have done for a follower before.
Khaled: I try to be close and in contact with my followers as much as i can. I read their messages, comments and I answer their questions.
A month ago, I was on vacation at one of my favorite cities. I was grabbing coffee with friends and suddenly one guy came to me and asked, “Can i take a photo with you? I’m one of your followers on Instagram and I always follow your stories and updates. I found out through your story that we are in the same city and my wish was only to catch up with you for a photo”.
For sure my answer was, “Sure! Come, lets take a photo”. He made my vacation.
INfleur: Who is your celebrity crush?
Khaled: Haha, that’s easy. Megan Fox. I love her! She has an edgy look, which I like, yet she’s sexy!
INfleur: If you were stuck on earth alone, name three things you must have with you.
Khaled: A Cellphone, Internet and Water
INfleur: Finally, what is the goal for 2018? Anything big coming up? Something you would like to share with us?

I love making friends more than lovers
