Upon graduation, she accepted the invitation to model during the Euro-Asian Fashion week in Russia where her charm and unique looks quickly made her the favourite choice of Russian designers. Subsequently, she was invited to participate in the largest Russian International Beauty contest where out of 500 pre-selected participants she was voted the audience’s favourite and placed in the final top four contestant.
