Agents from a modelling studio offered me to try when I was at school, that’s how I started.

Actually it did, a lot. Mostly because of this experience I decided to start studying fashion & management.

That’s actually what I love the most about modelling – walking in the fashion shows.

Not really, it just somehow happened while I was still just a teen.

Right now, fashion for me is a tough business, a future career field.
What is your must-have for the season?
Hmm, I think nothing specific in particular, just to have a pair of black boots and a leather jacket.
Fashion/ beauty icon that you admire?
There are a lot of people whom I admire, but some of them are Jean Paul-Gaultier and Elie Saab.
A fact about you that we don’t know?
When I was little, around 4 years old, I used to dress up in my mom’s most stylish clothes while she wasn’t home and her sister was taking pictures, as if we were having a photo shoot.
What makes you laugh and what makes you happy?
I think certain people and the jokes that they make is what makes me laugh the most.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Oh, lots of things – from museum visits, movies, music, art. Even stories that people tell.
How do you see Life through your eyes?
It’s a tricky question. You never know how to deal with this monster called “life”. 😀
