Interview: Model Olga Storozhuk (Ukraine)
Winner of the month
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Olga and I’m a model and actress based in Kiev, Ukraine. I’ve been travelling all around our planet for the past 7 years. I combine two of my biggest passions - shooting and travelling, this makes me truly happy.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
If I could sleep 4 hours a day and still be able to look good, I would definitely do that. There is always so much to do and so little time.
How did you start modeling?
I’ve started modelling years ago in Kiev with Karin Model Management. I always wanted to do acting, so my journey to movies and films started with a modelling career and I still can’t give it up.
What do you think of the work as a model?
One of the best things about modeling is meeting many talented and inspiring people from all over the world. You fall asleep in the airplane and in the morning you are shooting on the beautiful beach in Bahamas, Thailand, Maldives or doing a music video in Miami. And the next day you are back in Europe on the movie set. They say life is a motion, in my opinion it’s true and working in this industry makes you move and live to the fullest.
What is your beauty regimen?
I love eating healthy food and doing sports. I go to gym as many times a week as I can, sometimes everyday when I’m getting ready for a particular project. I also do pole dancing twice a week and wakesurfing whenever I get a chance.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I love people who are responsible, positive and motivated. I do my best to be professional. Many young models who are just starting their careers treat modeling just as a fun time, not as business and this is very frustrating. I’m never late to my shoots and expect that from others.
What are your plans for the future?
My major focus is acting, so I hope I will be able to continue my career. We are shooting a very exciting and fun project in Ukraine at the moment, it’s a fun sitcom called Super Cops, I hope it will be very successful. I also dream about acting in Europe in arthouse films. My biggest dream is to get a chance to work with Alejandro González Iñárritu!
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
One of the best experiences was flying a jet as a second pilot. I’m very interested in aviation and hope to get a license one day.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
If you want to be successful be unique. Don’t try so hard to look like everybody else. This world loves originals, not copies. Learn as much as you can. Be professional and know your goals. Don’t only dream, work hard to make your dreams come true.
What do you think of the magazine?
Modellenland is a unique collection of quality images that inspire. Inspiration is everything we need. Keep it up!
