Well, I grew up in a small town in Russia where I was plucked up by a modeling agent and whisked away to New York…Just kidding!
I had a pretty normal life in Portland, Oregon but always knew I wanted way more than to end up working for Nike or Intel (Portland's biggest companies).
I signed with a modeling agency in high school and began working for local clients for look books and right after high school graduation I moved to sunny Los Angeles, where I’ve continued to model and transition into acting! I am now 21 years old and loving life.
My agency here is Wilhelmina, and some of the biggest jobs I've booked so far have been Gillette, Sephora, and Nike.
It's easy to lose yourself in LA, so I’ve brought over some of my favorite things from Portland, such as my PS4, Nintendo DS, and lots of books. I'm a nerd, okay?! I also make necklaces that I sell on Etsy.
I also LOVE pilates and kickboxing classes. Punching things always feel great, haha ;)
HiSmile has helped a lot! I used to use whitening strips, but this is way more powerful. I don’t floss, oops, but I am obsessed with mouthwash. Can we all agree that morning mouth is one of the worst things ever?
Every day or two, when I'm busy at home doing things such as laundry or dishes. I'm way too talkative to use it around people haha!

I drink A LOT of coffee, and I'm weird, I usually drink it with a straw (even when hot) to avoid it hitting my teeth.
I am always taking photos, and I can see subtle changes from shoot to shoot, be it bloated face, or less white teeth. So I guess I am my own motivation…I also follow a lot of fitness Instagram accounts, so if I'm sitting on my couch and a ripped girl comes on screen, I'm like “okayyyyy I'll go do some abs”
This is simple, and random, but I found it the other day from Angelina Jolie "If I make a fool of myself, who cares? I'm not frightened by anyone's perception of me." Because really, who cares what people think of you! I realized long ago that everyone is going to judge, so let them, and live your life the way you want to, happily.
- Girls, lifting weights does NOT. MAKE. YOU. BULKY. I avoided weights for so long cause I didn’t want to look muscular, I thought you could turn that way overnight! I started doing bench presses and such, and I now look better than ever. Weight train!!!
- You need to do more than run on a treadmill for 45 minutes to see changes in your body. Do other types of cardio, like box step-ups. (10 times each leg, 3 reps, with lunges in between each set.)
- Wear Nike over any other brand ;)
- Pilates and Barre are models favorite workouts because they create long, lean muscles.
- Don’t be afraid to step into the weight room and train like the boys.
The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you.
I would send them to Boulder, Colorado! I've been to the main US spots such as NY, LA, Chicago etc, but Colorado is such a fond memory of mine. The mountains are beautiful, it's always snowy when I've been, it feels small town yet big town if that makes any sense! Great food too!
Nomophobia!! I am SO scared of my car dying somewhere without service and not being able to call for help. I'm getting all freaked out thinking about it!
Knowing that my job and paying rent depends on it hahaha
