Interview cover girl Ewelina Horoszkiewicz
Can you tell us a little about you?
I am 21 years old and currently live in Uppsala, Sweden. I was born in Poland and moved to Sweden at age 11. I play violin in a band called Past Recedes. I also sing and play guitar and piano. I love dancing, drawing and painting. I have a dog and a cat whom are very important to me. And when I am not a model or musician I work as a personal assistant.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would like to change how my mind works like; give myself more self-confidence and stop comparing myself to other people.
How did you start modeling?
I always wanted to become a model, it was my dream when I was little girl but then I gave up on that dream because of a scar I have on my face... Then in 9th grade a teacher said to me that I look like a model and should give it a try, so I did. I went to a meeting with Elite Model Management Stockholm and I got signed. That’s how it all began although I am not signed currently.
What do you think of the work as a model?
It’s not as easy as one could imagine but it’s hell outta fun. It’s all about meeting new people constantly, learning new things from those people, gaining new friends and experiences. I always end up with some sore spots on my body after a shoot though. Sometimes the soreness lasts up to two-three days.
It can also be very rough psychically; Constantly being reminded that it is my looks that matters. Although it’s way better when you work as a freelancer or for an agency that cuts you some slack. Where you can look the way you want and not have to follow rules when it comes to your look (rules about your size, body, haircolor and so on…). Also you don’t have jobs flying in you need to do some looking for them yourself, be your own manager.
What is your beauty regimen?
A lot of good quality sleep and eating healthy and with healthy I don’t mean a diet, I mean eating varied food and not excluding anything, eating regularly meals, a lot of fruit and food that is homemade, but also the most important; not forget to treat yourself sometimes. Feeling well and being satisfied is the best beauty regimen.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I am a very honest person and have nothing to hide and that’s why many people find me as an open book. Also I am very stubborn and don’t give up easily.
What are your plans for the future?
Study music in London or/and vet-program in Sweden. I am also considering moving to Australia in the future.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Being on stage is always one of my favorites even though I do it quite often nowadays but nothing can beat snorkeling with wild dolphins in red sea and touching one of them even if it was just a couple of seconds. Becoming an aunt was also one of my favorite experiences so far.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Don’t be afraid, give it a shot! You’re either photogenic or not. And if not there is still a lot one can do with practice! Just be yourself and have a good time on set.
What do you think of the magazine?
I think it’s a professional and high quality magazine. Very good for publication and spreading the work you do across the world.
