I remain the same person despite my job.
Modeling is kind of like a sport. You need a lot of endurance and focus.
My most memorable show was my first big show and it was Stella McCartney.
To me, living in New York is like traveling without moving.
I have to say I like shooting on the streets more than in the studio.
I still feel Estonian, I'd like to buy a house there, but I'd rather live somewhere hotter, eg in Africa.
