We asked Olena a handful of questions in order to get to know her a little more. See what she had to say below and check out our previous installment with Lucette Van Beek.

Who or what are you currently inspired by?

I’m always inspired by my sister and friends and family.

What was the thing that first got you interested in fashion?

It was actually my sister who encouraged my interest in fashion. She gave me the confidence to do what I want and continues to inspire me to work as hard as I can. Nothing is impossible if you work hard and want it enough!

Describe your current style.

My style generally changes with the mood that I’m in – generally I like to be in jeans with an oversized T-shirt and sweater.  It’s all about sneakers too.

Tell us about your day to day.

Day to day I work in modeling on myself. Modeling was originally something I thought would be a hobby and I’ve been lucky enough for it to become my full-time career. It’s important to take it seriously – make the most of all of the opportunities that are presented.

If you weren’t in your current city, where would you live? Why?

That’s a hard one – I’m not sure I could choose just one place with all of the wonderfully and very different places that I’ve been lucky enough to visit.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Never give up and never stop believing in yourself.

How do you relax?

I like to relax with a cup of tea at home. If I want to clear my head I love going to the gym – it’s a great way to focus your mind.

If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?

I would never be tired again!

What is something you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time, but haven't yet?

I’d love to try surfing!

What album do you currently have on repeat?

My playlist is full of totally different sounds and music in general, but it’s always about my mood (like my style!).  Right now I’m listening to a lot of Jonas Blue.

Where do you want to be in the next five years?

I’ve like to have a permanent base but still have the ability to travel all of the world doing a job that I love.
