My contact:

Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Slovakia (former Czechoslovakia). I came to the United States at age 22.

If not LA, how big of an adjustment was it moving here?
It was a cultural shock. Nothing made any sense to me. I grew up in a socialistic country where all we had was each other. We have learned to be happy with nothing but very strong family values. I grew up in a one bedroom house with no running water right by the train tracks. If you have seen the movie Borat you can imagine. Very similar.

Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I believe life is what you make it and that there is no destiny and there are only choices. Life unfolds in front of us as we go. I have made all my dreams come true so far, and I wake up every day being grateful for it. Since I am a Sagittarius, I love freedom, I am very independent, intense, creative and deep. My fans call me a motivational supermodel. Many of them reach out to me when they go thru struggles in life.

How long have you been acting/modeling?
I have been modeling for about 7 years. I have done over 40 magazine covers worldwide, national print campaigns and commercials. Recently I shot a small part for Entourage, and I am the 2009 St. Pauli Girl spokesmodel. You can also see my layout in the current issue of Muscular development and Fitness RX for men. This year I am heading to Slovakia where the TV network Markiza is going to make a story on me, and if I get lucky I will shoot the show Dancing with the Stars, also in Slovakia.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I see myself owning a makeup line. I have big plans with, it and I have been working on it since the beginning of this year.

What other activities/hobbies do you enjoy?
I love life so I try to live it to its fullest. Traveling is my favorite. I love the LAX, it's like my favorite place to hang out. I love to drive and I don't mind traffic.  I constantly have to learn and educate myself so I read all kinds of educational books. I have a huge passion for music so I let loose at a good rock concert. And I am also an amazing cook.

What do you look for in a guy?
I love men. I've had a very good relationship with my father,  so I treat men right and with respect. I am attracted to men who are very deep and compassionate. Men who can cry and are not ashamed of it. Men who can stand up for what they believe. Unfortunately Los Angeles is full of boys and not men.

What do you like the most about yourself?
I love my strength and honesty. I don't play games, always look at things from a positive angle and I am not afraid to face the truth. I have never sold my dignity, always worked hard and I can also get very wild. Lol!

What do you like least about yourself?
The fact that I overwork myself a lot and that  many times take more on my shoulders than I can carry.

What is your favorite quote or motto to live life by?
“Life is what you make it” and “If it's no fun, don't do it”.
