Such an absolute honor to have you onPlayboy! What is on the plans this year for you? Thank you for having me! It’s an honor for me too. I am currently working on a few very interesting collaborations with artists. Generally, my plan is to grow as a creator and produce beautiful quality content that audience will enjoy.
What is at the top of your list to achieve the most in the year of 2022? It’s a good question. I usually don’t make long-term plans to achieve something in particular, but this year I have set some goals at a personal level. I would like to develop certain habits – to get up at dawn every day and also improve my surfing skills. This is an activity that I got into quite recently.
What does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent, ambitious woman? For me, all these qualities basically define what a beautiful woman is. It is a woman who is passionate about life, expresses compassion, pursues knowledge, sustains a feel of adventure, knows her worth and does not give up. This woman creates that sense liveliness and energy that I see as beautiful.
What would you say makes you stand out in the industry? I think what makes me different it is that my approach as a model is not to just promote my own image or simply look cute in front of the camera, but to bring out the artist’s vision and breathe life into images we create together.
Where are we most likely to find you if not in front of the camera being
glamorous? You can definitely find me in a museum. I love art and go to galleries and fairs all the time. Of course, I spend a lot of time at the university library reading and writing essays, because I study art history.
3 ultimate deal breakers when it comes to men? Firstly, being too high maintenance would be a deal breaker. I cannot get along with someone who is always unsatisfied with the food in restaurants, or, never comfortable because he is constantly concerned about his appearance. Another deal breaker is passion for using a lot of cologne (I know this is a funny one). For long term relationship, I would not consider dating someone who has child-free views on life.
What are some of the things that attract you to a man? Sense of humor. Definitely the one of the most attractive traits. If someone can make me laugh if really gets to me.
Wheredo you see yourself in the next 5 years? I love New York, but I do think of a least partly relocating somewhere by the ocean and spend more time in nature. I also hope to meet a life partner and start a family, so where I am going to end up will depend on relationship situation.
What is the wrong way to approach you as an admirer? I would say, to be arrogant or over-confident. If someone approaches me by throwing comments about my looks, that is a wrong approach. Men do that a lot and I find it annoying, I have to say.
Where can our readers catch up with you and stay updated with your work? My Instagram and website is where I post the most. I have a link to my website in the Instagram bio. I post quite a bit of media content that I create on Instagram, and I post diary style notes in blog, which is on my website.
