DJ, producer, painter and model
Tell us about your education.
My first education was in Tour Management and Tourism because I loved history and travelling. My second masters degree is in sociology. I love people and try to understand their minds.
What came first? Modeling or deejaying?
First came modeling but for a short time only. I was in a relationship and my ex-boyfriend was too nervous about. I left modeling and started to search myself in other field and I found myself in music. After we broke up I started modeling once again.
Tell me please how you begin with music and deejaying?
I had passion for music since childhood and I even played piano. When I was 18 years old, I visited parties and I saw DJs. I wanted to try deejaying but felt shy and I was thinking It’s not for me. After few years of searching myself I finally tried it and was very happy. It started as a hobby but after few months I got a good job as a DJ and I shifted completely to music.
What were some of the main challenges and goals when starting out as a DJ and how have they changed over time?
In the beginning I didn’t imagine myself that I would play at music festivals and on big stages abroad on the best clubs and restaurants. My goal was very simple. I imagined myself as a cool DJ who plays techno at my favourite club in Kiev. Because I loved this kind of music and I was too young and emotional, I got in a fight with some guy, who was in good relationship with owner of that club and I got into problems of course. I couldn’t even visit that place and I was crying long time and then my friend told me why don’t you come to work in another country. Same day I got offer to work aboard in very fashionable places in Asia and in Qatar. I worked with famous stars on one stage as a INNA, TYGA, Jax Jones, David Vandetta, Nicola Fasano, Jeremiah, Artbat, Pete Oak, and Tom Boxer. I started to grow up in music and played new genres. I eventually started to explore myself and believe that a positive attitude towards failure opens the way to true happiness. Nowadays, I’m thankful to God for bringing me on a new level of my life with huge goals.
Being a female deejay, how it looks like?
I think it’s look sexy, isn’t? I’m always in attention. People see me on stage, they expect not only beautiful sexy girl but also great music. It makes them high and happy. It’s a creative job. I always have to create new impressive ideas and recording new DJ mixes, produce new tracks, searching for new music, be in trend, look stunning, care about my costume and body.
