Interview: Model Anastasia Vershinina (New York, USA)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Hi,My name is Anastasia Vershinina, originally I am from Moscow, Russia, and now I live in New York City modelling full-time.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I don’t want to sound selfish, but I don’t think there is anything I’d like to change in my appearance. I guess I could work on being more patient and stress less about things that are out of my control.
How did you start modelling?
I was scouted through social media about 5 years ago and since then I've been working professionally as a model. I had been scouted a few times before, but modeling was something I never really considered to do. I wanted to finish my education in Hospitality Management first ... modeling was kind of like "okay, ill try it!" and here I am, doing it full time!
What do you think of the work as a model?
I love that this job gives me opportunity to explore different sides of my personality, play different roles on set depending on what’s the story we are creating with the team. I like the schedule (that it’s not a 9-5 job). I love the process of creating beauty and working with talented people.
What is your beauty regimen?
I actually think beauty regimen starts from the inside! I am trying to eat clean and healthy, I’m vegetarian. So proper nutrition, peace of mind and a good sleep and the key to my beauty.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I am very energetic person and I always bring this energy on set. I am hardworking so you’ll never hear me complaining that I’m tired or bored. I am an easygoing person and I love meeting people, working with people which is very important for the industry I’m in.
What are your plans for the future?
I try to set new goals for each year so it is easier for me to concentrate on them. For now, my goal is to continue my career as a model and book the jobs that I want the most, to be happy with what I do.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Life itself!! :) But speaking about my career, I feel the best is still coming!
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
Stay humble, be respectful, do your best, never be late, never flake, don’t take rejection personally.
What do you think of the magazine?
I think it is very inspirational. I love all the success stories from models all around the globe! As well as all the beautiful editorials that are published here.
