1. Where you are from?
I was born in Jerusalem, Israel but I have lived in New York most of my life.
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
I love life and learning as much as I can brings me great joy. I am into dancing and currently am learning Salsa! I engage in tons of physical activity such as yoga, Muay Thai and swimming. I am also studying to be a doctor.
3. Favorite clients from the biz?
Oh this is a hard question to answer. I feel like every client has their own special magic and connection. There are clients that repeatedly bring me back because they don’t only love the outcome, they love the environment we foster.
4. Dreams/goals any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
I have so many goals and I want to do it all. My goal in life is to become a surgeon but of course also to be a more well-known model. I dream of closing a big international campaign.
5. Career highlights?
I have been a model for 10 years now. I have enjoyed doing NYFW runway walks for known designers in Lincoln center, did a Bobby Brown 20th anniversary shoot, worked with Estée Lauder, Smashbox, and traveled the world with L’ANZA. I have had the pleasure to be fit model with some of my favorite companies such as Mara Hoffman, Theory and Uniqlo. I have been really blessed in my modeling career and can’t wait to create more of these special moments.
6. How did you get into modeling ?
This is a funny story actually. I have been a soccer player for most of my life and in turn didn’t really feel like a pretty girl because I grew up in a family full of beautiful women. At one point I was a waitress and my best friend was modeling at the time and told me me to try it. She set up a test shoot for me, dressed me up and even had a make up artist for me. As soon as I was in front of the camera I felt as if I belonged. I fell in love and from there I did not stop learning and growing into what I am today. Life is really beautiful when you seize opportunities that come your way. Biggest lesson I have learned is to never give up and there is always more to learn about this beautiful crazy industry.
