Тhousands of likes & comments, magazine features, popularity... But where did all that come from?
Ok, so first of all if you already read the "About" text, you will know that I'm an art-person. To make my wish come true I first needed to grow, to develop my skills. Actually, I never knew how exactly to realise my dreams. The only thing I knew was that it belongs to me. And I belong to it. So I was just a girl with a lot of potential, but with no directions.
From a young age I started to invent and create my own clothing designs, with a lot of practice I learned everything by myself. Also I started to experiment with the makeup. And while growing up I earned self confidence and owing to this I wasn't affraid or constrained to show who I am, what I love, to do what I want. By saying this, I mean that I really love the Gothic culture and the Gothic fashion, but I live and used to study in a town where people are not so open-minded and every single day I get negative comments, but little by little it stopped worrying me. I really was, and I still fleeling wonderful with who I am. I just love to go out wearing what I want, with extravagant makeup on a daily basis. And no, that's not haughtiness, it's called Freedom.
So I had self confidence, skills in makeup, skills with the sewing machine such as creating my own clothes, accessories and other things, and also I had been practicing posing...and then what?
Well, we are living in such a modern world where communication is the easiest thing. So I noticed one person in a social media, a very talanted photographer, who had amazing photographs of very beautiful girls. But not just portraits of beautiful girls, his pictures always have some kind of mood, some of them bring peace and calmness, some of them certainty and confidence, pain or happiness, but no matter what they bring to the audience they are always a piece of art. Then I wished to myself to work some day with him. And after a few days he left me a message, which was an invitation for a photo shoot. I was... No, I really cannot explain the feeling, but surely I will never forget it! It was more than amazing! So, in May, 2014 The Greatest Team was born.
Well, as you can tell by this story, what would I do with all of my passion, with all of my dreams but without the person who showed it all to the world? What if that person wasn't there? Now that's why I am, and I will always be so thankful to him, and respect him no matter what. Not only that, he also became my closest creature. I know I can trust him, I know I can share everything with him. And owing to him I am who I am now - as a model and as a person, because he's a very wise man, I've learned a lot from him and I'll never forget what he's done for me.
And what would I do without all of my fans who drives me forward? What would I do if there is no one to like me, no one to like my work? And yes, I'm really thankful to the people who notice my pictures and give it some attention (commenting, sharing, or hitting the "like" button) and of course to those who leave such nice messages, to those who spent their time to draw my face... Thank you so so so much guys and don't stop believing in your dreams!
And here's a video, which the amazingly talanted photographer made for my birthday. It's a set of short videos that we captured during our work together and some of the photo shoots. And just look at it... I'm always smiling ^^
That is the most wonderful birthday present I ever had!
