How discovered:
I was planning to enter a competition with my friend, then I found another one on Facebook, so we both entered it. At first I didn’t get a callback, so I re-sent my application – and I found out later that they didn’t get my first one! My friend finished in second place and I won the competition, so happy endings are always good!!

Favorite things:
Badly obsessed with rings. I’m collecting them, and trying to get one from each city I am visiting.

Favorite music, band:
Placebo, Lykke Li, Bastille, Florence and the Machine, anything that fits my mood

Favorite movie, tv show:
Lord of the Rings, Cruel Intentions, watching way too many series, can’t say one favourite

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I would love to start an agency and help out all the young girls and boys to find out how things work in the fashion world, cause I would have appreciated it too if somebody had told me what to expect. At the same time I would love to write a lifestyle blog for a magazine.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Collecting useless things is a bad habit of my family, luckily I don’t have spare space in my luggage that I’m carrying around the world.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
Opening Ann Demeulemeester for my first time I ever attended fashion week. I’m going to always be a fan of her and her designs! The other one, when I found out that an artist tattooed one of my portraits on the shoulder of a man…

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Having my family and my friends around, and all of them feeding me with my favourite things

Favorite artist (any kind):
My good friend Oleg Borisuk who also did my first test shoot. Audrey Kawasaki who does amazing paintings on wood

Place you would love to visit:
Australia, South Africa, South America… I could keep going cause I would love to travel almost everywhere :)
