Where are you from?

I'm from Siberia, Russia.

How did you become a model?

As my sister is also a model, my family asked me to give modelling a try. It seemed interesting, so that was how I started.

What is your favourite modelling experience?

I've been modelling for two years now, and I did everything from runway, fashion shoots to fittings. My favourite experience was having the opportunity to be on a runway show which appeared on national television.

What is the one thing about you that most people don't know?

I don't drink, smoke or party, and I prefer to do sports, being in the nature, and fishing.

What is the best piece of advice someone has given you?

To do whatever you can do. Try to be perfect in everything you do and everywhere you go. Even if it's just a casting, you have to be better than anybody in the room.
