So tell us..how did you start modeling?
I’ve never dreamed of being a model, but a lot of people have always been telling me that I should…And just about half year ago, when I’ve been working at Bose Corporation as a software tester, one of my colleges, who’s hobby is photography, asked me to pose for his portfolio. I said “why not?”:) When I moved to NYC one of my friends offered me to send some photos to a casting for a fashion show, I just sent pictures from a photoshoot with my ex-colleague, and they’ve picked me. After that I’ve started to receive a lot of offers for photo shoots with photographers, that’s how it all started.
What made you want to get into modeling?
To be honest, it’s beautiful photos, love for fashion and style, ability to meet and socialize with new interesting people and visiting different places.
Do you think that modeling is a good profession?
It depends… I think of modeling as more of a hobby vs. a profession, and can provide a good experience for a career in a related field, like design, cinematography and so on.
Who is your favorite model right now?
That’s a difficult question to answer for me, similar to my favorite movie, actress, book and so on. There are a lot of beautiful and attractive models, but if I’d have to pick a girl who is more interesting to me it would be Nataly Osmann. She is a model and co-founder of FollowMeTo project. Nataly is a blogger and writer as well, and I like to read about her travels around the world. Her page on Instagram is not just beautiful, but also interesting, inspiring and motivational. She is beautiful inside and out.
What do you do in your free time?
It depends on a season and weather. I like activities like skiing, skating, mountain biking, roller skating, and hiking. But above of all, I love traveling, visiting new interesting and beautiful places with historical significance or natural attractions. I like to spend time at home as well, reading a book or cooking something new.
What’s the biggest city you’ve been to?
New York City is the largest city I’ve ever visited.
What’s your most favorite city to visit?
Boston. I fell in love with this city at fist sight. I couldn’t believe that its part of the USA, this city has a unique atmosphere, beautiful architecture, parks…Boston is always different and amazing at any time of the year.
What city do you have on your list to go to before you die?
This list is so long, and I think you will get tired of reading it all. My dream is to travel around the globe. My “must see” list includes Europian destinations such as Venice, Portofino, Paris, Prague, Oslo, London, and some cities of the USA which I haven’t seen yet, like Washington, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco and San Diego.
Do you like pets? Do you own any?
Of course I like pets, but I haven’t kept one since I left my parent’s house two years ago. My mom has a dog, it’s of a Chinese powderpuff breed, a year ago she gave birth, and my parents decided to keep one puppy. My mother made an Instagram account just to see my life in the USA, but then decided to post a few pictures of her dogs and gained a lot of followers cause they are charming and cute 🙂 I like dogs very much, but my dream is to have a cat in my own home.
What instantly gets you excited?
Lots of things, like music, food or even a new dress or a pair of shoes, but most of all it’s new places to visit, like national parks with beautiful landscapes.
How do you see yourself in 5 years?
Life is too unpredictable, and it’s difficult to plan ahead even a year in advance. But if I had to pick now, in 5 years I want to be a happy woman who can successfully combine family, work, and my hobbies.
What is your main goal in life?
To realize my dreams and to be happy.
