Could you describe your personality?
A Few words about me, I can say I am friendly, I know what I want in my personal life, I am a hard worker and I am really ambitious!
For how long have you been a model and how did you became model?
I started modeling 6 years ago and I really didn't want to be a model because I didn't consider myself beautiful! Then a friend of mine persuaded me
to participate in a beauty competition just for fun, I said –let’s do it!
Many international agencies were there and agencies from Paris choose me immediately!
A few days later I was packing my luggage and I was ready to experience my first trip as a model in Paris!
If you were not a model which job did you like to do?
Actually I wanted to be a teacher! Geography or literature!
What are the most difficult things for a model?
I think modeling is a tough world indeed but you travel a lot which is amazing, You meet new people, make new friends, speak and work with the best photographers, get dressed by the best designers, you learn how to be independent and strong really fast; the worst part is that you don't see your family as often as you wish!
What is the best part of being a model?
There are so many interesting things to discover, it involves quite a lot of meetings. It is hard to pinpoint my favorite aspect of modeling.
And your worst?
The worst meeting was with a rude photographer who treated me really badly, because I am Romanian, he started to say bad things about my country, I took great offence to this so I promptly took my book away from his hands and I just let him speak by himself!
To maintain such a body do you follow a “special regime”
I don't have a special regime, just eating healthy, love vegetables
Do you use specific tips to keep such a nice skin?
about my skin I can say only to use hidratante cream and no makeup outside jobs if it’s possible!
Would you change something about yourself?
I would’t change anything about myself, I...just feel comfortable with myself as I am!
Do you prefer photo shoots or catwalks?
To choose between showroom, catwalks and photo shoots I prefer photo shoots indeed!
So far what are you most proud of?
I am proud of my success in the career choice I have made. I want to make my family proud of me if they are happy, I am happy also!
What is your goal?
Yes, I started to write a book and I hope I am going finish it soon...It’s going to be about my life especially how everything changed from the first trip as a model...more details I can't give you yet :)))
