How did you feel the first time you were hired as a model, and what was the occasion?
I was scouted by my agency in Ukraine when I was 15. By the age of 16 I went abroad for my first across borders contract. When I first stepped onto the plane for my destination, it was like a dream come true: the beginning of my own fashion adventure! Everything seemed so surreal and all the successive new experiences were incredibly exciting. Despite feeling nervous, I had faith that this was going to be an amazing journey, although it would not always be easy.
What’s your best memory linked to this profession?
I was beyond excited to shoot my first magazine photoshoot in Paris, near the iconic Louvre
Museum. Going there for a few days was truly a dream come true! What I hadn’t expected though, was just how beautiful and magical the city would be in real life.
If you were a mood, what one would describe you best?
I would describe myself as ‘joy’ because I always try to look at the bright side of things. Life can get tough sometimes, but I like to focus on all the good that is happening around me. Even when dealing with difficult situations, I try my best to make sure my attitude and outlook are positive.
