Ania, we are glad to welcome you to Instyle Moldova, you are a successful girl, a model and influencer, what is the most interesting and difficult thing in your profession?

For me, the most interesting thing is the travel. I love going to new places and enjoying the culture and meeting interesting people I may not have met otherwise. And, the difficult part for me would probably be balancing everything in my different careers being an extremely active commercial real estate agent modelling acting and being active in the community . Sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day! But I would not trade anything … I love it.

Tell us about the most interesting model project in your life.

That would have to be the photoshoot I did wearing a «Je Suis Charlie» shirt, displaying my support for the fight against terrorism in honor of Charlie Hebdo and for the protection of freedom of speech after the horrific incident in Paris. It was the most fulfilling project … helping to bring attention to something I felt very strongly about. If I can somehow make a small change in the world, I am all over that!

Is it easy to be a beautiful woman in the modeling business?

Nothing is easy… unless you make it that way. I always take anything I do very seriously and put my heart into it completely. Otherwise, I don’t do it. Beauty has many levels, and it has different meanings. I think being a beautiful person, can translate into a successful model.

Tell us about your model project ands.

I am always taking on new projects. Some of which come from my own ideas. But, I am always open to projects that I feel comfortable with. One of my latest was something new for me… having my likeness used for a video game. It’s always fun for me to explore new things that I have not done yet

Tell as about Canadian fashion industry?

We have a great scene up here!! I live in Toronto and we have many events and great boutiques!! Everyone come up and tell them I sent you!

Let’s talk about your hobbies, what helps to develop your femininity?

I wouldn’t consider myself overly feminine. I love to dress u and do girlie stuff, but I much prefer sweats and chillin. I’ve always been really into playing chess … ever since my childhood. And I listen to music … I love all types of music.

Do you have places of power that fill?

I get my power from f=my family and close friends. They are the most important to me. And from within … I feel power when I can make something better for someone.

What inspires you the most?

Changing the world!! I like to raise a strong voice for causes I believe in. And take action however I can.

You look great, share your top 3 beauty secrets?

Pretty simple really … I stay active and try to at least break a sweat every day, and I eat well and use good skin care products. Shout out BluBerri Beauty!!
