Were you excited to shoot for Playboy? I was very happy. This is my second cover for Playboy after being on the cover of Playboy Russia. It’s always been a wish of mine. I’m very honoured and Amer is a terrific photographer. I’ve always been inspired by his work and finally, we got together for this amazing cover shoot.
Tell us something surprising about you? I am an ex-flight attendant. Despite my fragile look, I’ve saved lives on board of an aircraft.
What are some of your hobbies? I recently started snowboarding and went through so many training sessions. It’s an indescribable feeling, so I am waiting for the snowing season so I can go back in the mountains.
What turns you off the most? Irresponsibility in people annoys me.
Describe your perfect date. I had quite a few wonderful dates. Each of them was special in its own way. And since then, I don’t wonder what it should be, I just enjoy the moment.
What would you consider to be your biggest challenge as a model so far? I used to think that it was my height. I was worried because I’m just a baby at 164 centimetres. Now I think that this is not a problem at all.
Describe yourself in one sentence. A girl with a good upbringing, a strong character, and a pure soul.
What is your biggest turn-on? When a man dominates in everything. I find it insanely sexy.
