Interview: Model Anna Tkach (Ukraine)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Hi everyone. My name is Anna, I’m from Ukraine. I’m 22 y.o now. I was studying politology in Poland, now I’m studying on faculty of child psychology and I really like it. What else? I just like to enjoy the life: beautiful landscapes, tasty coffee, charming sounds, discover new and wonderful, learn to live positively. I call it harmony. Try to find out it everytime and everywhere.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would say not change but improve. I would improve my mental side. To have more strong personality. I mean constant development. To become like an Indian guru, wise and calm, outside and more important - inside myself.
How did you start modeling?
In the school when I was near 13 years old my English teacher said that I will become supermodel in the future. Honestly, it was big surprise for me, I didn’t think about modeling before. In the age of 15 I had my first shootings and shows in Ukraine. In 17 I started to work as a model abroad.
What do you think of the work as a model?
didn’t like my first contract abroad. But with every year, with every new contract, every country I’m gain experience and like it more and more. It’s a great opportunity to visit different countries, meet interesting talented people. It’s really not only about modeling, models are like nomads, new day - new place, you never know exactly with which people you will work, where, how it’s will be, it’s not typical stabile job, you need to be prepare for that.
What is your beauty regimen?
More activity: sleep enough, eat healthy food - in generally it looks like this. I’m doing cardio (running, walking) in one day, next day for strength trainings, next day it’s yoga. Prefer to cook by myself and be sure that every ingredient is natural. And I’m a fan of porridge: it’s the best start of morning for me.
I like to eat “beautiful” - enjoying of every piece of meal, with pleasant atmosphere around. And be happy - it’s the best and the simplest way to be beautiful.
What are your plans for the future?
I’m planning to do so much things! And not only in the modeling. I prefer not to tell about my plans but I can open few.. First it’s development in models career, I’m working for some projects and I hope it will be successful. Secondly, I wanna create my own little confectionery. I love to make cakes. With low calories or classic. Like to collect sweet recipes from over the world. It’s can be like a little cafe where people can come and drink cap of cappuccino with piece of tiramisu, for example in cozy atmosphere.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
We are all unique and we need to remember about this. Distinguish from other.. probably I don’t wanna be somebody cool. I like simplicity in relationships with people, don’t try to impress somebody. Never blame people, try to understand them. I’m not drama queen)
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I can’t to point out some concrete things. Life is mix of occasions, good and bad that create our individual personality. So much lessons I got for my 22 years old and so much I will take in the future. The most exiting moments were for example visiting the highest building in Shanghai which is 632 meters. Also scuba diving in Mediterranean Sea. I like extremal moments.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
You need to remember that modeling it’s a business first. Every client has own vision, style, so if client didn’t choose you in this time it doesn’t mean that you are worse than any other model. Be responsible person, stay positive, keep your body in shape and your face fresh, create your own style that will represent your unique personality. Be wise and mentally adult, people around are not always acting right. Gain experience and create your own conclusions about modeling!)
What do you think of the magazine?
I love magazines like your is. Like esthetic side also I like to read different stories about modeling. It’s interesting, fresh and attractive. Easy to read but in the same time serious. Thank you for inviting me to become a part of your magazine. And thanks readers for your attention.
