Our readers would love to get to know you more Sofya. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I'm a high school student now and after I graduate I want to continue study and work in the tourism and entertainment industry.
Sofya, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I aspire to seethe the whole word and create a charity fond that helps children to be healthy and happy.
My way of modeling started with an experiment with one make-up artist, and I liked this experience, so I got a diploma of a professional model.
Who is your inspiration in life Sofya? How do you keep inspired?
I draw inspiration from nature and ocean and, of the cause, I'm inspired by successful projects.
We all make mistakes Sofya; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I had no difficult situations with my colleagues, but in the future, no one has not immune to them and, of course, I need to be more tolerant of other people.
Sofya, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
It is very important that the agreements should be fixed in writing form as clear as possible, and, of course, all of the agreements should be completed on time.
Please tell us Sofya, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I think that the next five years are my most productive time for achieving the goals and realizing in the profession. It will be a time for studying and working; it's difficult but very interesting.
Sofya, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
Once I worked as a model with the make-up artist who made one vivid image based on a combination of my red curls and a wine-colored dress, and the makeup I proposed was used.
Sofya, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My career at the beginning and now I have a few implemented projects, so each of them gave me an important experience, and I'm proud of each of them.
Sofya, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
One of my projects was in a completely new image for me. I needed to feel like a more experienced woman and create an image of the inimitable Bridget Bordeaux. It was not easy, but the result surpassed the expectations of all and became for me an incentive to continue the way as a model.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
be very patient, stress-resistant and ready to work very hard
