YOU WERE BORN IN MOSCOW, IN A FAMILY OF SCIENTISTS OF THE ALL-UNION SCALE. HOW DID YOU DECIDE TO MOVE TO THE STATES AND BECOME A MODEL?

I have always loved and love Russia. I have the warmest relations with my family, but I wanted to live my own life, and not just be the daughter of famous parents. Already as a teenager, I felt an urgent need to choose, take responsibility, set goals, and learn – what I was interested in, not what my parents had predicted for me. In those years, I listened to the radio, various political programs, discussions – it was unreal, like a door to another world. Then dreams of America began. I was attracted to this country, but then I could not even think about going there because of the situation of our family in the USSR and the status of absolute secrecy of my grandfather and father.

TODAY, YOU ARE A POPULAR MODEL. HOW DID IT START?
