What do you think of the work as a model?
A lot od people think that it's easy work. I hate this opinion. It isn't only looking good in the front of camera and smiling. Model always must be in a good shape with good skin and well cared body.

A lot of laugh and a lot of feelings in posing. We made many good pictures and spend great time together. I fell in love in Sweden, I want to come back there soon.
