The 2018 MAXIM Australian Swimwear Model of the Year YANA VOZHAROVSKAYA makes her cover girl debut…

Santi Pintado
Hello, Yana, congrats on your MAXIM cover. How does it feel?

I’m extremely happy to see myself on the front cover of MAXIM Australia. This is my first cover for the magazine and, of course, I’m beyond ecstatic that I’ve received such an opportunity.

What do you love most about this photo shoot?

We shot this on the Gold Coast on an amazing Horizon E94 yacht. The whole photo shoot took 10 hours with the most amazing and friendly team who are professionals at what they do. I absolutely enjoyed the process and loved the atmosphere around me.

Well, you look gorgeous. When do you feel you are at your sexiest?

I believe a woman is a creature who can attract a man’s attention with her eyes and impress and arouse regardless of the place, mood and state. This is why I always try to look well-maintained, worthy and moderately sexy.

What’s your best asset?

Purposefulness and aspiration for self development. It’s extremely important to constantly motivate yourself. Physically, I’d say my best asset is my body shape — thanks to genetics for the slim waist, rounded butt and long, straight legs.

Tell us a bit about yourself, Yana.

I was born and raised in the far east of Russia in the capital city called Khabarovsk. I consider myself to be an all-rounded creative person. Since the age of four I participated in many activities like painting, singing, dancing... you name it, but I never really gave all of myself to one particular thing. I enjoyed doing my degree at a university in Russia and loved what I was doing, but circumstances made me put it on all hold to move to Australia which I’m very happy about.

As a newbie to our country, did you find it hard adapting to Australia?

Yes. It took me a year to get used to new surroundings and it was hard mainly because of differences in people’s values and perspectives on life in general. However, after re-analysing the way people live here, it made me overlook the way I was thinking and made me love Australia even more and want to spend my life here.
