1. How did you get into modeling?
I’ve been always passionate about fashion and modelling and I remember enjoying posing for my parents and photographers at a very young age. I’m still very proud of some of my first photographs from holidays. I became aware of my interest for modelling when I started putting more effort into my Instagram profile where I found a lot of inspiration and connected with like-minded people. Even though I’ve never done any professional modelling, I think that I have learned a lot and I hope and look forward to new opportunities.
2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?
I’m a graphic and UI/UX designer. I graduated from the Academy of Arts in Banja Luka as the best student of the 2018–2019 academic year. The vast and extending area of my profession provides me with an immense space to explore, solve problems and create in both artistic and scientific ways. One of my greatest interests is simplification and conveying complex information and ideas. I believe that art, especially fiction, can be the most effective means of education and way of finding truth, which should always be one of our primary goals. When I’m not immersed in art, I usually revolve around fitness and nutrition or watch movies.
3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?
Now that’s a difficult question! Trusting someone covers all of the above and it’s usually one of the most difficult things in life.
4. What’s your life motto?
Always choose love.
5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!
If I had to choose only one word to describe my style, it would be timeless. I try not to keep up with any trends. My favourite brand is Versace because they have such a strong character, a mythical narrative embodied by its bold design. My favourite fragrances are Eros by Versace, Le Beau by Jean Paul Gaultier and BOSS The Scent by Hugo Boss.
6. What genre of music best describes you?
Music is also one of my greatest interests and I listen to it as much as I can. I love all genres of music, but pop and instrumental/movie music are some of my favourites. Some of my most played albums right now are Californian Soil by London Grammar and Evermore and Folklore by Taylor Swift.
7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?
I live in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and it wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Just walking down its streets filled with trees and sunshine on a spring morning would be more than enough to experience.
8. Name one celebrity you’d like to get naughty with!
I believe that getting to know someone, their deepest secrets, their best and their worst, is the naughtiest thing ever. So, I’m not sure whether or not I would like someone beyond their physical appearance, but I can say for sure with whom I would love to hang out. Those would be Taylor Swift and Chris Evans.
9. Do you have any special Talents?
Some people say that I can sing. I love singing but I think that I haven’t been using my voice in the proper way so I try to work on that as well. I also write.
10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?
That’s easy. This interview is the most interesting thing online at the moment. Other than that, I think that enjoying movies and music online is always a good idea.
