How did you get into modeling?
When I was 12 years old, in my town was model agency casting, there I was noticed and asked to come back when I get older. After two years I sent them my photos and after couple of months flew to work in Tokyo.
What’s the best career advice you’ve received?
“Be charismatic and never beforehand hang your nose”.
What advice would you give to aspiring models?
Do not think that modeling is easy. It’s the same job as everyone else’s. You can not sleep all day, eat badly, and you can not complain, because you are at work. You will often miss your loved ones, but there’s nothing you can do about it either. Before sending your photos to the agency, make sure that you are patient enough and this is exactly what you want.
How is your stay in Tokyo so far?
I’m in Japan for the fourth time, so I’m all familiar here. I have a wonderful family and friends who always support me, I’m always in touch with them, so I do not cry at night, that I want to go home. I live in the heart of Tokyo, everyday I can walk on Shibuya and rejoice at this. I love my job, I always find wonderful clients.
What is your best modeling experience so far?
In this matter the main thing is the knowledge of English, patience, charisma and punctuality, the ability to restrain yourself.
What else are you interested in, besides modeling?
I’m shooting a video, and in the future I want to start a channel on YouTube, but I’m not so sure that I will find my audience. All is still only in the plans.
