Can you tell us a little about you?
Hi ! My name is Biletskaya Arina. I'm 24 years old. I'm Aquarius. I was born on January 28, 1992. My height is 178. Recently I'm living in Saint Petersburg. I adore my city, famous for its history and beauty. I'm proud to live in such a beautiful city. I moved to St. Petersburg when I was 16 years old, graduated from St. Petersburg Politechnical University. Now my profession is a qualified PR specialist.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
If I want to change something in myself , it could be rather inner qualities , not external. It's my character - I'm a little bit hot-tempered. I'd like to be more quiet , more persistent for my goal achievement
How did you start modeling?
I was 15 years old when my first photo session happened. Everything started from Beauty contest in my city where I became the first vice miss of my city , later first vice miss of my country. I became university student when I was 16 years old and continued modeling at the same time of university classes. I was already working with several agencies of Russia, I was so exited of this. I was flying to Milan for vocation and spending whole summer working there.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Even if you don't become world famous model, you find many friends, improve your English if you are from Russia or any other country. You can travel, earn money and enjoy your work. Because you love it. This work opens your mind, liberates your personality in the good meaning of this word.
What is your beauty regimen?
Very important is to have good sleep. Healthy sleep makes your skin more smooth. Long sleep positively effects on your immune system. It's good to drink 2.5-3 litters of water daily , because water helps you to loose weight and moisturizes your skin.
Of course healthy food and sport are very important ether, even if you visit gym only 2-3 times a week. And of course your smile, good mood and positive attitude.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I think, it's being positive , kind. And love the whole world around you to set a goal and achieve it.
What are your plans for the future?
My plans for future - I see myself in more serious business to open my own business , school for models, teaching the right way of model walk; to be wife, mother because finally every girl dreams of building her family.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Model business was always for me not everyday work, but a joy and happiness. I'm in this business since 16 years old. The great experience for me was Milan where I worked whole year. I also remember beauty contest on the international level.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
of course if you want to see results you must love this business. You have to dedicate yourself completely and start working in it since early years of your life, because models age history is very short. Anyway, if you have a real wish you can start working since 20-25 years old as well. What is important , it is to set a goal and achieve this goal, sport and being positive also will help you.
What do you think of the magazine?
I learned about this magazine recently not long time ago. It's a very good magazine and it helps to make model famous, provides maximum information about model , which makes her closer to the readers.
This is a great advantage for the magazine and models as well.
Thank you for this interview and publishing this interview in your magazine. It's a great honor for me.
