On moving to the U.S. at age 15:
"when you're 15, you think you're the s**t and know everything. I look back now and realize I was a child when I came to the US. I lived in New York and was looking for modeling work. I didn't speak a word of English. I didn't know anything. Modeling was my dream since I was very young. When you're 15, and you're excited to have your dream come true, you kind of figure things out."
On the difference between being a woman in America and a woman in Russia:
"I love America because everyone can make it here. Both sexes are pretty equal in America. Men will always be men but there are a lot of powerful women here. In Russia it's hard to achieve what you want as a woman. Men in Russia are very traditional. I was raised with the mentality that men are the providers. I never really had a chance to date many Russian men, but I love American men very much."
On if she ever gets insecure about her looks:
"Like every single woman, I have my good days and my bad days. My job has taught me how to embrace myself. Being a model, how I look is the most important thing. I think God created you the way you are for a reason. You have to learn to embrace what he gave you. I've lasted in this business for 11 years, which shows there's something special about me. You have to embrace who you are."
On whether her job makes her intimidating to men:
"I'm a model but it doesn't mean I don't have heartbreaks or feel lonely sometimes. We all go through the same things and we all want to be loved. Some men may be intimidated but I am pretty easy going."
