The first steps to a dream:
My first professional experience in photography occurred when I found out that my photographer was studying in my group. Agreed with him on the shooting straight in the university.
After this shooting, I realized that I want to become a model.
A new life and a way to a dream:
At the age of 21 I moved to Odessa, stayed in Odessa and graduated from the university in absentia.
In Odessa, I met many models, one of which became a very good friend to me.
In 2015, she invited me to take part in the photosession, after I received the photos – my desire to become a model turned into a goal!
From dream to goal:
In 2014 she visited the beauty contest “Miss Divina” where she performed with a dance giving it to all the contestants, having received a beautiful diadem in return.
Since 2016, has started active participation in various photo projects and social projects.
I started to create my portfolio that you see on this site.
In 2016 she visited the “Opera Classic – Spring” show in Odessa.
In 2017 I visited the show “Ukraine Fashion Week – Odessa”
From 2015 to 2017 she worked in a sanatorium as a settlement administrator in one of the buildings. Now I work remotely in the field of SMM.
I love walking, walking on city trip. Going to the movies or concerts. I like to take part in various projects, television programs. I like listening to music.
I am able to create products from quilling and self-hardening plasticine.
I like dancing.
I like table tennis very much (I do not know how to play myself but I will learn how to play in the plans).
I go in for sports myself to support and grow the body.
After all, as Alla Kostromicheva said, “It is very important for models to maintain sophistication, not to pump the figure.”
And with my problem, sports – this is important not only for beauty, but also for health.
