Adrianna, great editorial from you and Lou here shot in Chicago recently. How and when did you get started modeling?
I started modeling two years ago and I totally fell in love with it. I always start things but tend to quit since I get bored very easily. However, modeling definitely stuck with me and it is a passion of mine. I have been featured in VS Chicago Russian Magazine, Express Magazine (which is worldwide), Chicago’s Bridal and an LA Tan Billboard. You can still see it on I90 when driving towards Schaumburg from Chicago. It is definitely something to be proud off since you don’t see yourself on a huge billboard every day.

What’s been going on recently with your career?
Recently I have tried out for MAXIM’s hometown hottie 2013 however only reached to top 100 which I still find as an achievement since it is the top 100 of United States. Even though I may not win everything, or accomplish things the way I would like them to, I always look at the bright side and realize that I have a lot of things going for me and this is just the beginning. “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”.
Support from my friends and family really means a lot to me and that is what really makes me strive even harder.

What do you do in Chicago when you aren’t modeling?
Currently I work full time as a promotional model and I am a Junior at University of Illinois at Chicago where I study Business Management. I sure cannot wait to graduate next fall. I have worked a lot of events for Bacardi, Grey Goose, Miller-Coors, American Express, MAXIM, Maybelline, Toyota, Ford, Absolut Vodka and many more. I love this job because it gives me total flexibility when it comes to my schedule. I am never stuck in the same place over and over again, and I get to meet new people and make long lasting friendships.

What do you do when you get away from work and modeling?
I was born in Poland and came to United States when I was 11 years old. I go back as often as I can to visit my family and friends. My second passion (right after modeling) is traveling. If I won a lotto I would not buy clothes or cars, but instead visit all the places possible. So far I have been to Italy, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, France, Mexico and Germany, but there is a lot more world left for me to see. My next big trip hopefully (keeping my fingers crossed) is to go to Brazil for Euro Cup in 2014.

Any advice for guys looking to date a model?
As far as dating life I don’t think I ever had a bad date. Most of the guys I dated I guess you can say were pretty “normal” haha Biggest turn on for me is gorgeous smile with nice teeth and knowing how to dress well. Turn off on the other hand, cockiness and bad breath. If you are trying to come off as rude and ignorant and trying hard to get, than you can walk yourself to the door because there is nothing else left for you to do.

Any advice for new models just starting out?
One thing I would tell just starting models is to believe in yourself and do not let anybody let you down. I am sure everybody has heard that before, but trust me it will either make you or break you. You need to embrace who you are and be confident of what you have and flaunt it. You have big ears? Show them off, You think your eyes are too far apart? Use them to separate you from other models. It is about personality and confidence in the end. There are tons of gorgeous girls out there but some of them lack personality and that something that nobody else has. If you got it, use it.
