"It's very easy to loose concentration, to be frightful, to disgrace someone or to be disgraced. But, if we want to succeed in life, we must be and stay professionals."

About: I started working as a model in 2015 when I signed up a contract with my agency in Greece; ACE Models. My first photoshoot was for the A/W 2015-2016 campaign of a Greek shoe label with the name Minato. Since then I've been working as a model a lot.
I have also worked in Austria for an Austrian clothing label named Mothwurf.
Recently, I also was in Serbia for a commercial shoot.
A while ago, I got the lead role of a Greek movie by Costas Zapas. The name of the movie is "Frankenstein Rec" and is an international co-production by Minus Pictures (Greece) in conjunction with Dreamfilms GmbH (Germany), Options (Bulgaria), Pappas Films (Greece) and SEM-S SA (Greece), and it's been supported by Greek Film Centre.
Tell us something about yourself. What you do, passion and aspiration in life?: I'm a model, an actress, a ballet dancer and a pianist. My aspiration was all about managing all my passions that I have in my life with a way in which I will be able to survive in the everyday life.
Thankfully, my passions and hobbies are my professions.
What is the most challenging part of your profession?: The most challenging part of my profession is to stay professional. It's very easy to loose concentration, to be frightful, to disgrace someone or to be disgraced. But, if we want to succeed in life, we must be and stay professionals.
How old do you have to be before it can be said you died of old age?: In my opinion, people start growing old, mentally of course, only if they stop have dreams and aspirations about their lives. One day we are all gonna develop wrinkles, but that's only the outside effect. And yes, usually time passes quickly when we are older, but it's because of the time that goes by. We define time. We must never forget that time was created for human beings just only for survival reasons. Imagine how the world would be if there were no time. It would be a disaster. That's why we should have dreams. Cause if someone tells me that I only have few minutes or seconds before I die, I won't feel sorry for myself. I won't die to be miserable or sorely disappointed with the fact and the idea of death. I won't die to regret about things that I did or didn't make. I will die happy, because I had dreams and I worked every single day of my life to pursue them.
