Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Ilia. I’m 19 years old. I live in Gdańsk(Poland) and I love sea.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would lengthen my legs and make myself a natural blonde. I'm only 167 cm tall and that makes it really difficult for me as a model.
How did you start modeling?
Not so long ago I loved wearing princess dresses and I liked to have nice pictures in them. I came to the conclusion that posing for photos is cool (and I think it's going to work) and I really want to take care of it.
What do you think of the work as a model?
I think no other job would allow me to meet so many people and be in so many unusual places. I am saddened that many people underestimate how demanding this job is.
What is your beauty regimen?
I don't have any special habits in general. I eat a lot of sweets, and usually, I don't get up before 12. I play games and watch a lot of TV series. But I lighten my hair because thanks to it I feel nicer... I think my look shows how I feel that's why I focus on it.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I'm not sure I don't like to describe myself and I'm always empty in my mind when I get such questions.
What are your plans for the future?
To be a better model, to become a good (and the most beautiful) programmer and to travel more.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Probably a photo session with a Czech pair of photographers. It gave me a lot of motivation.
It was my first photo shoot with people who didn't speak my native language and I had really big problems with English then.
It was funny to drive for about 2 hours and walk 5 kilometers to get to the place where we wanted to take the photos. We had really big communication problems but it was really amazing. At the end we all swam in a cold sea. I remember that I have never come back so tired after the photo shoot as that one time.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
Try to find someone in your area who will inspire you and try work with them.
What do you think of the magazine?
I like the fact that I can find so many inspiring people in it.
