Interview: Model Ira Malachyn (Ukraine)

22 Jun 2020

Can you tell us a little about you?
I'm Ira, and I' m 19 years old. I was born  in a small village in Ukraine.
I have always been a very active and curious girl and always dreamed about better life. From the very beginning I always felt that my place was in the big city, full of life and  opportunities for self-improvement. Furthermore, my mom always said that the small village we are from is not really a place for me, because of the capacity and ambitions I had. . 

At the age of 14, I left my home and relocated to Poland alone. Thus, since my early years I know what exactly autonomy means. Personally I love dogs, books, travels and mountains.
I have two older brothers and wonderful parents who are first of all my friends, but also my great support. Despite of their little abilities they have done a lot for me and helped me to end up where I am now and have what I have today. I enjoy meeting new people and communicate with them but also sometimes I prefer to stay alone and to reflect about my life. 

 

If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
Initially I wanted to highlight a couple of qualities, but no. I rather wish to improve myself than to change... Every single day I discover myself more and more, so it's very likely that the qualities I mentioned wouldn't be relevant on the day this interview will be published.

 

How did you start modelling?
For as long as I can remember I always loved to be photographed (my dad and brothers even joked and never understood the reason I needed so many photos). I loved to pose as well as to take photos (but then I realized that the first one is my real passion). I was posting photos to my instagram and one day I got an offer for TFP shooting from a photographer, then another one and another one... and somehow it turned into something more serious.

Through this cooperation, I began to implement my ideas and did it every time better. Eventually it gave me the opportunity to work as a model, to make a good portfolio and to start receiving my first offers  from the model agencies. 

 

What do you think of the work as a model?
Of course I love it, more than that, I aim to get a job like that. Jadore the process and the possibility to create, to meet interesting and artistic people. For me, it's not even a job but something more, it's a real joy. Most people don't take the modeling as a serious job, but they often forget that the picture we see as a result sometimes takes much more effort and time than it seems.

 

What is your beauty regimen?
Well, have a good sleep, inner harmony and self-love. I also keep an eye on my diet and train 3-4 times a week, lead an active lifestyle and prefer to walk. And if cosmetics then minimum of, cause I prefer to look more natural...

 

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
My ambivert nature and my sunny temperament, which allows me to take a better look at life no matter how difficult things may be. My kindness and probably some childish naivety about the kindness of other people. The ability to find something good and useful even in the saddest situations.I also hear from others that I am very conscientious notwithstanding my young age. .

 

What are your plans for the future?
Upgrade my modeling skills more and more and become better every single day. I do want to travel a lot and maybe I wish to start my small business one day.

 

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
For me probably that’s the most difficult question. I would definitely say that my life is full of beautiful people and memorable moments. Notwithstanding my young age I am proud of all my experience I came through. Both positive such as negative one. Each of these moments are incredibly precious and important for me. So I just cannot emphasize the only one exceptional thing. I appreciate small things and consider that every moment that happened in my life  was necessary, crucial and amazing in its own way.

Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
Firs of all your confidence. Don't be afraid of beeing funny and diverse, no shyness in front of the photographer! I also recommend not to be embarrassed to pose or to give out ithe deas that occurred in your head, because most of the times it is exactly what you need. At least I often had it. I felt afraid to show what I imagined and it turned out to be exactly what they expected from me. And if it is possible, listen to more experienced, skilled and competent people.
 And don't try to be just beautiful, in photography there' s something that matters more than just a simple beauty.

 

What do you think of the magazine?

The concept of the magazine allows models, photographers, makeup artists of different backgrounds not only to show themselves and their works, but also to present themselves. I definitely like it.
