Tell us something surprising about you? I would stay at home with a jar of my favorite Magnum ice-cream, watching a movie, rather than going outside.

Were you excited to shoot for Playboy? Yes, very excited, this is the magazine that, for decades, had the most beautiful women on the cover.

What inspires you? Strong personalities, and people that keep pursuing their dreams no matter what.

Why did you choose to pursue a career in modeling? It inspires me to look at my body and to strive to look good. I feel that the body is the one gift what we are given when we come to this world and it is up to us what to do with it. It is almost like a piece of art in the hands of each person and you can make anything out of it. 

Who do you look up to in the modeling industry? I absolutely adore the girls that stand out in their different way, not same typical look. Girls, like Tyra Banks, Ashley Graham, Anna Nicole Smith… they all are very different but also very sexy.

What are some of your hobbies? I love to travel to exotic countries, to take pictures of the sunset, I love dancing salsa, or to just listen to latin lounge music.

Name three things on your bucket list? That is easy, it would be all about traveling and I already have a few places on my dream board. I’d love to take a long safari tour through different parts of Africa; Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa. So far I have been to Kenya and it absolutely amazed me with everything. The nicest people, amazing hotels, and of course its gorgeous nature with all kinds of animals and birds… Marrakech, I have wanted to go there for the longest time and Udaipur, India; that place looks like it is right out of a fairy tale with the castles and living maharajas. 

Turn-ons… A good sense of humor, intelligence, and a deep voice.

Turnoffs… Being boring, selfishness, and indecisiveness.

Describe to us your perfect date… My ideal date would be when the guy plans for us to gosomewhere, he picks me up and surprises me with a new romantic restaurant that I have not been before. There should be a good and fun atmosphere with great chemistry between us – that’s a must… and then we see how the night carries on.

Which world capital would you most like to visit, and why? Singapore; it’s a center of innovation, one of the cleanest cities with an exotic culture, great food and fun nightlife.

What is your mantra? “Live , love, and laugh.”
