What was the biggest challenge for you? Hmm.. that’s a tough question. Well, modelling isn’t really challenging for me. I don’t understand people who say that being a model is difficult. For me, it is nothing but sometimes you have to be thick-skinned for sure. In what situations should you be thick-skinned? You need to know your value, be prepared and resistant to a lot of critiques. Even if clients at the castings don’t say anything mean, sometimes being rejected 20 times in a row can be quite disappointing. But come on, it is normal that not everybody will like you! Also, working at the commercial markets may be very annoying. In Europe being a model has some kind of value and charm while in Asia you are just a walking coat-hanger or even worse - a good looking white mascot, trust me that’s how the thing is in Asia. How does your work look like? If it comes to my work it is not very spectacular. The only big brand I worked for was Prada. I did showroom for them, then there was John Galliano and some smaller Italian brands. After Milan, I started going more often to the East. Turkey, China, and markets there are really commercial so there is nothing worth mentioning. Do you find posing difficult or is it just a piece of cake for you? To be fair, I don’t have any problems with posing. I have always been quite a shy person so I thought I was going to have some problems with working in front of the camera. However, it turned out totally different. I am comfortable with shootings. I also found out that is vital to get along with the photographer and people who work on the project. Why? Because if the atmosphere is fine it is easier for everyone to do their jobs. Saying in a nutshell, I am having fun while posing and I really like it. How does it feel to see yourself in a magazine? O God, I hate it and I am literally trying to avoid looking at my pictures as much as I can. I just don’t understand their style and act of beauty. Extraordinary face, perfect body etc. That’s what comes to my mind when I think of a model.
