How and when did you know you wanted to become a model?
When I got a phone call while in high school from my agent, who had discovered me a week before, asking if I want to go to Tokyo!
Where were you discovered?
Ironically… in McDonald's!
What do you like most about being a model?
Travelling, learning about different cultures, finding out things about yourself, like how you can cope with things, new environment, situations and being alone.
What has been the greatest experience you have had so far?
To be able to travel to exotic countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Japan, Singapore, etc.

What is your fashion dream?
To go back in time and model in the early 90's.
What was your favorite city you traveled to work to?
I have so many special cities on my list, but the place I see myself living now is London. I am always inspired in London, I love english humor and the people are nice and more genuine than anywhere else.
Who is your fashion icon?
I love Scandinavian style. At the moment I follow two Swedish bloggers: Elin Kling and Columbine Smille. I think these girls are so smart and they breathe good style. I also like the effortless coolness of French women like Emmanuelle Alt and Carine Roitfeld.
Who is your favorite artist?
Damien Rice.

What is your favorite music band?
I don’t have a favorite band. My music taste changes constantly. I always love oldies, but lately I listen to a lot of music from home. I'm so proud of my fellow Estonians "Evert and the 2dragons ". They do great music and they are the first band from my country who are becoming successful worldwide.
What are your goals in the next 5 years as a model?
I only moved back to Europe last year after working for years in Asia. Now I'm focusing on establishing myself in Europe and New York.
What are your secrets for a fit and healthy body?
I go for dance classes regularly, try to walk everywhere, drink lots of water and have a low carb diet.
What is your favorite part of your body?
My eyes and eyebrows.

What makes you feel sexy?
What is your favorite piece of clothing?
Leather jacket.
Is the fashion world what you expected it to be?
To be honest, I don't remember how I thought of it before becoming part of it. It's definitely much harder work than it seems.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I love to go to museums, theatre, cinema, read, spend time with my boyfriend and friends, dance and travel home to Estonia every chance I get to spend time with my family and friends.

Experiences and memories. I don’t collect things.
