An interview with beautiful model, Olga Gittera!
How and when did you first get into modeling?
My dad took me to a local modeling school when I was 12. At that age I was very very tall (around 1 foot taller than all of my classmates) and really shy about it. At first, the plan was taking only 1 unit, but then I fell in love with fashion and studied more and more.. And then I won a Miss Siberia beauty contest as a Young Miss Siberia.
Who were some of your biggest inspirations?
I learned about her when I was 15. When I saw her pictures and especially videos I had nothing to say but "Wow!". At that time she was like an explosion of my ideas about fashion. She definitely influenced my style of modeling. She is Adriana Lima.
What has been your favorite gig so far and why?
It took me a while to find an answer! I guess it was shooting a cover for a Russian magazine Women's Health. I'm usually very serious and cold in my photos, kind of fierce you know:) But in that project I had to be a very sweet, smiley girl and honestly I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to do that. But in the end everything came out really good. I definitely had fun on that day.
What projects do you have coming up?
I'm working really hard on my dancing and acting now and I can say that I'm really excited about the upcoming projects because I'm going to use all of my talents together.
What are your plans for the future?
I want to be an artist and develop as an actress and singer. I want to do something new. I want to create. I want to break boundaries. I want to inspire people and make them smile. I want to learn much more about this life. I also, want to grow spiritually.
What is your advice to other aspiring artists?
Time is so precious and passing by so fast! So keep busy and work really hard if you seriosly want your dreams to come true. Never compare yourself to anybody else but always try to do better than you did yesterday. And remember that there is no one who desires you to reach your goal and no one who will do everything for you. No one but you!
