Daily Duo: Meet Kseniya & Max

Kseniya

Who:

Kseniya Piatsevich, 175 cm / 5’9″, Belarusian, born February 13th.

We Asked:

What was your most embarrassing moment?
“I was 9 and played Winnie the Pooh at primary school gala concert. And I completely forgot my lines at the most important part, blushed red and had to improvise jumping around the stage. My mum says it was one of the sweetest moments but I felt super embarrassed. And by the way, I dreamed of [having] the part of the Roo instead of Winnie the Pooh.”

How and when did you become a model?
“I was scouted online when I was 16. One day I came back home from the shop with a packet of my favourite sweets and had a perfect plan for the evening with sweets and movie. But I saw a message from my current mother agent on my social media account asking if I’m interested in modelling and can I send more materials and information about myself. So instead of enjoying my sweets, I spent the whole evening taking measurements and my first polaroids. That’s how it all started!”

What are your interests/favorite things?
“My favorite dish is my mum’s borsch (that’s what I miss the most when I travel). I’m afraid of spiders and doctors who draw blood from me. I like making drawings on my T-shirts so they are one of the kind and have fun with my younger brother and sister.”

Max

Who:

Max Taggart, 188 cm / 6’2″, Canadian, born October 15th.

We Asked:

How and when did you become a model?
“In high school, I always had an interest in posing in-front of a camera. I always wanted to try that extra step and try out something like modeling where you are being surrounded by professional photographers. Being surrounded by cameras always made me feel like I was in my natural zone and I always dreamed of doing shoots for some of my favourite brands. One day I decided to contact a photographer in my hometown for my first test shoot and if I liked it, the photographer agreed to send my photos to one a mother agency in my city.”

What’s the most interesting thing about your family? Do you have siblings?
“I have two little brothers named Micheal and Matthew and my parents call us ‘the three M&M’s'”

What are your interests/favorite things?
“Ballroom dancing, kickboxing, gym and American football.”
