Interview: Model Eliz Dyachenko (Poland)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Eliz, I`m ukrainian living in Krakow, Poland. I was born in Ukraine, in near the sea town in big family of doctors and I have two brothers and a sister. When I was 18 I decided to leave my parent`s house and moved to Poland for studying. I think it was a kind of destiny choice because in Poland I am realizing my plans, career an found real friends.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
At this moment I don’t want to chance anything. But I think changes are taking place with everyone by themselves, not only in appearance but more in character or world view.
How did you start modeling?
At first it was just hobby, because about a lot of time I didn’t have mother agency, I worked like an independent model for look books or just art projects. And than one day I received an offer of contrakt in Mango Models (http://www.mangomodels.pl/), after that I made some good works and it motivated me to work harder, so now it is one of my jobs.
What do you think of the work as a model?
It`s realy hard and amazing work. From one side you work a lot physically because it`s a lot of travels, little sleep and you always must be in a good shape, but finally it is perfect way to see a world, meet new interesting people an find new experience in life, new inspirations. Eventually I like to see beautiful pictures of myself, for me modeling it kind of art.
What is your beauty regimen?
Be in harmony with yourself and eat properly.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I’m a hard worker. If photographer tells me to pose in cold water in bikini, standing on my head or will be hanging on a rope - I will do that. Or if photographer tell to be sexy, smiley, charming and I’m not feel like that I will play it. Modeling is work, so if people give you work they expect something you should do.
What are your plans for the future?
I`m just planning to be happy as now :) travel a lot, work at jobs I love also I would like to be mom one day, but it's not too soon haha :)
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Maybe the most favorite was shooting for Cosmopolitan and “Douglas”, because I love this pictures. But also very memorable for me was travel to Japan, it`s like a travel to another world! So interesting and amazing country with totally different view.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
May be I will tell: „Cool! You brave and crazy person!”. The most important advice is to believe in yourself, but not forget that there is a real life also.
What do you think of the magazine?
I definitely like it, because it is great platform to share new talents.
