Remember when Justin Bieber posted a photo of a girl on Instagram with the caption "Omg who is this!!"?

The singer's fascination with the previously unknown girl ended up becoming her ticket to fame. Her name is Cindy Kimberly and she has landed her first job in fashion, starring in online British retailer Very's SS16 campaign. The 17-year-old currently studies in Dénia, Spain and used to earn £3 (approx. RM17) an hour as a babysitter, according to Daily Mail.

"When I saw Justin was asking about me I got very emotional because I've been a fan of his for more than six years," Cindy told Daily Mail. "It seems like a fairytale. A friend of mine often used to joke that one day I'd be one of the girls he talked about and I didn't believe her."

"My life's changed positively since Justin appeared in my life. At the beginning I felt completely overwhelmed and didn't know how to deal with it but now I'm getting used to it. I've had a lot of job offers since all this happened. I'm constantly receiving calls offering me things, but I'm focused on my studies and fashion commitments I'd already made," she added.

With her good looks and JB's help, it wouldn't be a surprise if Cindy becomes the next big name in the modelling industry (watch out, Kendall and Gigi).
