Interview: Model Vita Goncharuk (Ukraine)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Vita. Originally I’m from a small town in the south of Ukraine.
Now I live permanently in Kyiv. I love my country and so proud of ukrainians. I could have become an engineer, but modeling has taken a big part of my life.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I would nothing have changed. I like to live and discover my life. At a certain moment, I realized that the outlook on the situation in life changes as you grow up and in this overcoming difficulties, you overcome yourself and rise to a higher level, which makes you a more complete person.
How did you start modelling?
It happened in the 1st year of the institute, when I had to prepare for the week of tests at the university. Instead of this I reviewed the American Top Model and learned from Tyra Banks how to “smile with eyes”.This show was so inspired and then I started my journey. By the way all the tests were passed fine.
What do you think of the work as a model?
It is very interesting and sometimes difficult. It is also a school of life where you learn how to be independent, to be a boss or performer, to be responsible and creative.
What is your beauty regimen?
My routine is everyday way of life that has been formed over by mistakes and discoveries. Sport has always been a part of me since kindergarten. As a child I went to rhythmic gymnastics, then various types of dances, enjoy running, fitness sometimes gym. When I traveling I do prefer to walk to locations rather than use public transport . For me foot has to be simple without processing, breading, sauces. To this boredom I will add that there is a place for sweet too.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I can’t say that it makes me better or worse or distinguish than someone else, I just know my positive and negative sides. I approach my work responsibly and try to give the best.
What are your plans for the future?
I love fashion as well. And recently started working on my own clothing brand.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Workshop in Berlin. It was dedicated to analog photography.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
It is important to explore yourself, your personality, likes/dislikes and based on this, step by step build your style. It is very important to stand out and bring some story to the photo in the movements, look, emotions, clothes.
What do you think of the magazine?
I would have called this magazine as a society that unites people who love aesthetics and beauty.
