How can a man catch your eye?
A man has to be well dressed and groomed. I like men who put some effort into how they look. But most importantly, he needs to have confidence and a great sense of humor.
How else can a man turn you on?
I have a weakness for men who can and like to cook. I am ready to start taking my clothes off as soon as he is cutting the veggies.
What’s your biggest turnoff?
There is nothing worse than jealousy. Jealousy shows weakness and lack of confidence. It is the poison that eats up the very foundation of a successful relationship—trust.
What is your ideal date?
I am old school. I like dinner, movies, flowers, champagne, hot tub, candles, and lots of sex.
Where are you from originally?
I was born and raised in Russia.
Where’s home, now?
I came to the United States 4 years ago and it’s been my home since. I have traveled within the country a lot and I love its unparalleled beauty and uniqueness. Currently I live in Washington D.C.
What’s your family background?
My family is in Russia. It seems that all my family members are either in the medical field or in art. I think they both influenced me to develop the pragmatic logical thinking of a scientist and the creative, uninhibited soul of an artist, LOL!
What did you study?
The battle between art and medicine finally was compromised for me by studying medicine and keeping painting as a hobby.
Were you in any clubs, sorority, active on campus life, etc.?
Studying medicine is a different entity of college life. The schedule is overwhelming. The program activities were community oriented such as the annual benefit run supporting free medical clinics and a Red Cross blood drive. We all did our best to be a part of these projects.
Now that you’ve finished college, how does it feel?
I feel like I have a fresh, new start now and I am excited to reveal my potential in modeling to myself and to the world.
What is it about modeling that excites you?
Ah!! There are so many things! Modeling for me is a form of art, especially the print work. It is a chance to connect through the lens of the camera with a large number of people and to carry the aesthetic pleasure of the beauty of art and sensuality to those people.
What do you think is your sexiest body part?
Not only mine, but every model’s sexiest part of the body is their face. The shape of the face, the lips and the eye expression creates that “chemistry” which stays with you after you stop looking at the person or a picture. That is the first thing we see and the first thing we remember when we think of the person.
What’s your dream job?
I’d like to be a professional palm reader… ha ha! No, seriously, I obviously would like to become a super successful model and to reach the very top of the modeling business. However, this business has deadlines. I think eventually, I would like to open a total makeover beauty center where I would have a team of plastic surgeons, aestheticians, personal trainers, dieticians, stylists and counselors to help my clients to achieve their best possible physical beauty, confidence and balance.
How long can you stay away from your cell phone without going crazy?
Unfortunately, these days, not for very long. About 6 months ago, I had a cheap plastic phone from Wal-Mart, which only had the capability of calling and texting. I was fine going away for a week and leaving it behind. Now with my smartphone, which can do everything but bring me coffee in bed, I feel like my life depends on its 5 inch touchscreen, LOL!
Name anyone, alive or dead, who you would love to meet.
I would like to meet Hugh Hefner to steal his heart!
Give us a fun fact about you.
Sometimes I sleep with a teddy bear.
What’s the most common question that people ask you?
Well, I think it’s 50/50 between “are your eyelashes real?” and “where did you get those shoes?”
Do you have a philosophy of life?
I believe in a power or the good energy. I am convinced that positive thoughts, words and actions make a real difference. I believe that there is nothing stronger than love, and love of one person can make a much bigger impact than the hate of hundreds.
Best or worst pick-up line used on you?
I was sitting at a café having a cappuccino and catching up on Facebook when this guy came right to my table and said “Do you mind if I sit here” and took the chair next to me without waiting for an answer. At first, I was not sure if it even was a pick up, but then I noticed 5 empty tables around us. Remember guys, aggressive approach only works in football.
Tell us at least one thing every man should know about women.
When you ask a woman “what’s on your mind” and we answer “nothing”, it’s a lie! LOL!
Are you a big partier?
Definitely! I love dancing. When I go out it is most often to a club.
Give a shout out to your fans…
Thank you so much for your support. It means the world to me. I love you all.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Running my total makeover beauty center, traveling the world and modeling!
