How discovered:
My sister has sent few pictures to my mother agency, I went to meet them in person and we have clicked!

What was your first modeling job?
I have debuted for Gucci Resort 2018 in Florence, which was such an incredible experience in a gorgeous city… Even days later it still felt like a dream.

Favorite things:
I love nature! I am in love with bouldering which I recently I got back to after 8 years of break. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends…and I can’t live without music (!)

What are you listening to at the moment?
I’m a huge fan of old school hip-hop, such as Gang Starr. I used to do break dance, when I was younger, so I could say there is “a connection from early age with Hip Hop and RnB”.

Favorite movie, tv show:
My most favorite movie is “The Prestige”, which I have seen about 10 times, I always find something new that I haven’t seen there before. As a lover of Hip Hop, one of my favorites TV show is “The Get Down”, but when “Stranger Things” was released, I couldn’t wait for the new episode!

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
It is so hard to tell, because every designer has its own “language”, there is always something unique about them, but if I should mention any, I could say that I love the collections of Gucci, Dior, Prada, Ermenegildo Zegna. All are really special; there is a twist and surprise in their designs, which blossoms with personality. Right now I feel “obsessively” connected to Dior’s Sauvage.

What were you doing before modeling?
I was attending University near my hometown.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
In that scenario, I would be probably still continuing in being full time student, but I’m super-grateful for the opportunity I have got, I absolutely enjoy what I do…It is a bless!!!

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Honestly? Sleeping! I can really spend a day in bed and not to move at all! And play PS 4 for too long :)

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I think that it is still Gucci Resort 2018, which was also my first job… I felt like in a totally different, but a cool “world”, surrounded by awesome people, made a lot of new friends and oh my…the venue, the clothes…Florence is an unbelievable city!

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
We do have such a beautiful nature, also the traditions started to mean a lot more to me after I have explored different countries. My hometown is really small I can walk from the centre to the forest in less than 15 minutes, which is super-cool. I love how calm it can get. But most importantly nowadays whenever I hear “hometown” I think about my family and friends.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would really love to work for Raf Simons and Calvin Klein! And work again and again for those brands I already had the opportunity and pleasure to work for. Hoping one day my “wishes” will come true :)

Place you would love to visit:
I always wanted to visit Japan, thanks to modeling already happened, but I definitely would love to come back. On my wish list still are Thailand, New Zealand and Australia.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
“The Witcher Stories!” I can’t stop! I have read 4 books about “The Witcher” in a month and I want more…

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
To believe in myself, but to stay with my feet on the ground! To stay focus! To be always polite! Who would like to be around a grumpy face?
