1. Tell us about yourself. 

I’m an ambitious 22 year old Croatian girl trying to make it in the UK. I’m a HUGE animal lover – I adore dogs, wolves and foxes. I love video games and meeting interesting people.

2. What is your childhood dream? Did you make it happen? 

I think my childhood dream was to become a singer because I was obsessed with Shakira. I don’t know why though because I literally can’t sing at all! So luckily that didn’t happen!

3. Describe how you first get into being a model? Is being a model your full time job?

Yes, modelling has now become my full time job. I’ve always had an interest in modelling and kept getting offers to shoot but was always too nervous to actually do it. Once I actually did it, I realised how much I enjoyed it and how much I missed out on.

4. Do you have other passion to pursue?

Modelling is definitely a passion of mine. I love getting ready, wearing fabulous clothes and creating fantastic images with talented photographers. But I also have a huge passion for video gaming and wish I could do both modelling and gaming professionally but that is almost impossible!

5. What type of model you would describe yourself as? Any tips for being a model? 

I’d say I’m a fashion model, I guess. I enjoy too many different styles to define this at the moment. I suppose I’m still trying to find my absolute favourite style to shoot, but I do love portrait and fashion.

As for tips, I think the best thing you can have is confidence. It really shows in photos and makes a huge difference if a model is feeling happy with themselves. A model can rock any look as long as they embrace it!

6. What does the word success means to you? 

Success to me means being able to do something you love for a living and keep improving at it. It means being happy with the effort you’ve put in and the results you gained with it.

7. What is your mantra for living?

My mantra for living… I suppose I’m just trying to take it one day at a time and make the most of it. I try to keep positive no matter what. It’s hard when I’ve been let down or put effort into something and not got anything out of it, but I try to remember those just weren’t meant to be and I should focus on something else.

8. If you are given a million dollars, what would you do with that money?

I’ll start with the greedy bit – I’d probably get a car and a nice place for my partner and myself! As for the more humane bit, I would help out my family in Croatia and use the money to try stop some horrible things going on in the world. I won’t get into detail but I know having money makes these things a lot easier.

9. What’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought in your life? And why?

I don’t really spend money on expensive things, to be honest! I think the most expensive thing I bought were plane tickets to visit my family and of course, lots of presents for them!

10. What is your proudest achievement or accomplishment you have achieved in life?

My proudest achievement is getting the courage to leave my country on my own at 18 to get a good degree in the UK, and to start my life as an independent young person.

11. Can you name some of your favourite model and why? Who would you love to collaborate with?

Barbara Palvin is by far my favourite model. She’s gorgeous and she can pull off any look she wears and she definitely inspires me to be a better model. I also look up to the MUA Johanna Herrstedt because I’ve been following her since she started out and she’s grown so much and proves you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it. I think she makes young girls embrace their natural beauty which is exactly what they need for their confidence. I would love to collaborate with Daphne Groeneveld because I love her natural beauty and I think meeting her and working alongside her would teach me how to embrace my own as sometimes I still struggle to fully embrace it.

12. What would you say that is the biggest challenge about being a model?

I think the biggest challenge about being a model is ensuring you’re in the right state of mind for the industry. I don’t think just anyone can do it, models have to know how to stay strong and do their best no matter the circumstances.

13. If you are given a chance to invent something, what would it be?

Invent anything I want? Hmm, I would have to go with the cheesy “teleportation”! It would just save so much time and money.

14. If you have a magic ward, what is the one thing you would ask for and why?

I would ask for good things to happen to good people. Then we would definitely know who’s worth trusting!

15. What advice would you give to other aspiring model out there? Any general advice to those have big dreams? 

Models, keep doing your thing and don’t give up. Your look is unique and will get recognised by someone that’s worth representing you. Dreamers, if you really want it, it will happen. Do your best to make it a reality.
