— What are three interesting facts about you?
I love novelty; I can’t do one thing for a long time, I can’t communicate with one circle of people for a long time, so I have many social circles and each friend of mine is different from others. I have tried many different directions in my life; I was engaged in theatrical art, drew, sang, practiced various sports, the most important thing in life for me is to get new skills and knowledge, to improve myself. I managed to work in different places: a waiter, a barista.
— Who is your favourite entertainer?
My favorite actor in early childhood, Leonardo DiCaprio. He always amazed me with his charisma, the ability to be different, to reincarnate in different heroes and even with his not same-type roles it is very important. For something else, I love him so much because of his emotionality. I am a very emotional girl. His facial expressions and gestures are very active in the subject.
— What is something you wish you knew more about?
I want to plunge into the study of psychology. Since knowledge in this area is very useful in life because life is endless communication with people. Communication is very important in any job, especially a model. I have often been convinced of this when I worked as a waiter.
