Who could look at this Hungarian guy and not fall in love with him, even though it's just his pictures, but Ferenc Mate is all real! Modeling isn't what Ferenc is all about though, he's much more than a healthy face, he's the kind of a guy who strikes for education and glamour, giving the business world a pledge of his college degree, making him a bachelor of business administration, and giving education a glamorous attendee, yet striving for the master degree in business. Ferenc, 25, is right in the pulp of Hungary; he's like us, a city Cosmo guy, and not any city, the city where beautiful people get born, Budapest... And while worrying about introducing your friends to your embarrassing parents, Ferenc is the guy to take to your mom back home, playing soccer with your dad, as he used to be a semi-professional were he was assigned as a midfielder giving the rest of the team a scary boost! While this Hungarian piece of art sets a high value on eating a healthy nutrients, his goal is optimized on becoming an executive director in a huge corporate group, wearing all the fancy suits he once wore on runways after he became a successful model in the industry. My.Kali.mag was up for the gladness Ferenc gave us as he was up for the questions he gracefully answered, as to be our Mr. August and one of My.Kali.mag's eye candies!
Of every country, have its own original people, with a signature beauty. What do you think of the beauty of the Arab world?
I think the beauty of Arab people is really unique. I prefer dark hair, and green and dark eyes myself, and off course perfect tanned skin, and that's what the Arab world possesses. Arabian beauty is exotic, especially hear in Europe.
Tell us about the beauty of your country's people?
In my opinion the beauty of most Europeans come from Eastern Europe, amongst others from Hungary (my country), the Czech Republic, Poland, Bulgaria, and Serbia or from the Ukraine.
What do you think this world needs, to be in a better place?
The entire World has to realize that we only are able to deal with the major problems if we get united and put economic growth in the background and focus on the environmental protection, Africa (hunger, civil wars, and children) and the unrealistic number of overpopulation in Asia
What are the issues that matter the most to you? Tell us why, and if you've done anything toward it?
It’s definitely protecting the environment. We have to preserve Earth for the next generation, because if things keep on going like this there will be neither healthier environment for the next generation to live, nor a beautiful nature to witness and get provided from. I do what I can, I separate my waste, I never buy nylon bags in the grocery store, and I try to reduce my water and my energy consumption.
Tell us, how do you deal with your downs and lows that pop in your journey of life?
I’m a lucky guy, as I love life, and don’t get sad by every little setback I suffer from. I find joy in everything I do, whether it’s studying, playing soccer, working or training in the gym, I’m generally a happy person.
Life is filled with obligation and fun-out times. What about yours? What do your acting persona is like at work? And what is it in your fun out times?
At work and at university I’m very ambitious and dynamic; the same is true for my fun times. I always try to be the best-(it’s not always a positive attitude)-, in sports, work and school as well.
Well, What do you do for fun anyways?
Playing soccer, training in the gym, or at home with the skipping rope. I love to visit spas and strands, and spending my hot summer days near the water as known as the beach!
Whose your favorite Model (male/female)? Why?
The female one is Heidi Klum, she’s gorgeous, perfect face, and sexy body, and she’s got nice curves, not like the majority of successful models, who look like a beanpole. The male ones are Eduardo Verastegui and Tyson Beckford, they are handsome and have a muscular bodies and are tall.
Define the words sexy, attractive, hot, cute and pretty in your own dictionary.
Sexy= if you get “nasty” thoughts by catching sight of the respective person
Attractive = it doesn’t has to be in a sexual way, but you feel attracted to the person
Hot= in my definition the same as sexy
Cute= if someone has a nice face
Pretty=if someone looks to the best advantage in his/her clothes
your skin and body looks so amazing. What is that you do to take care of them?
I’ve got good genetics [laughs]. I started to play soccer in a club at the age of 6. At the age of 16, as I felt I should make my body more masculine I started to visit the gym and gain muscles. I do two hours of training four times a week in the gym. I eat proper food, a lot of chicken breast, rice, and vegetables.
Well Ferenc, Have you ever been to an Arab country?
No, unfortunately not, but I’d like to, or simply, not yet!
What are your future views? What do you see yourself doing in the future?
I want to have successful modeling career, but my dream is to be the face of a big brand, and to have shootings abroad.
Tell us about your hard work, to be seen in the fashion-bus?
My experience so far is not that big, I did several hair shows for Schwarzkopf and L'oreal, and I'll be in a new magazine in Hungary which will launch in autumn, and I consider my appearance on My.Kali.mag is a big opportunity for me to be seen in the fashion bus.
What's Ferenc's good quality that makes him think it could make him a positive role model for others?
I’m always a gentleman, I’m honest and diligent. I’ve learned a lot of things in sports that are useful in life: to help other people, to be able to deal with defeats, not only victories. And to accept whatever comes to me and try for the better.
