Interview: Model Angela Olszewska (Poland)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Angela. I’m 23 years old. I am from Poland. I lead a double life but don’t be scared: I’m a model but also a co-founder and CEO at my startup. This means I have to constantly navigate through the all-different worlds of beauty and business. This duality extends to my private life, too. On one hand, I’m into extreme sports and an adrenaline addict, on the other, I enjoy my time at home with just a book or a video game… recently, I just can’t stop playing Civilization VI on my iPad!
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I’d like to be more evenly tempered. I get easily agitated over things that aren’t worth it and go through the day grumpy. Worst thing - I know it but I can’t help it, it’s just my emotional me.
How did you start modeling?
My lack of confidence was defeating me so I decided to counter this with something that required a huge amount of courage. So I signed up for Miss Poland pageant. Even though the whole thing wasn’t really my deal, I did enjoy working with the photographers and the photographers replied with words of encouragement and some really good pics. I followed with getting on the Poland’s Next Top Model, a tv show, and then it all somehow started to unfold.
