I could simply say “I just do what I love” and include within that simple sentence, the most important message of my work. I felt however, that sharing a little bit more about myself would encourage others to follow their dreams.
I was born in Greece and from a very young age I knew I wanted to do something different. Something my family and I would be proud of one day. I was inspired by people living a life beyond the norm, those who stand out of the crowd, the ones who make the impossible possible.
Born a dreamer, I found it confronting living a conventional life and after acknowledging that, I committed to living my life the way I wanted it to be. I chose to step out of everything familiar and simply relied on my drive and ambition, pursuing my dream as I lived on my own overseas. I moved to Australia in 2013 and ever since then, I have been determined to build a career in modeling.
Given the existing industry rules and stereotypes at this time, I found it most likely that I would have a successful career in fitness modeling only. Despite this, I didn’t let the common perception define me and I focused on creating what I had in my mind; a style of modeling showing that fitness is not a niche but a lifestyle and on par with conventional beauty.
Having spent most of my life training, I consider being strong as part of the feminine beauty. I wanted my modeling work not just to reflect my athletic looks and abilities but also my personality, ideals and passions and I had a vision of bringing together my love of fitness and fashion into my current career. I’ve worked hard over the years on advancing my modeling skills blending my fitness looks with elements from the fashion and beauty world.
Most of all, I hope my story and work to give a more meaningful dimension to female strength and beauty; one that expands beyond the body image and reaches the knowing and the true inner power of a woman for creating opportunities.
All of my work and efforts started from literally nothing and I will always be thankful to the special people who helped me along the way and supported my journey to date, both professionally and in my personal relationships.
I can’t express enough gratitude to the fans who have supported me over the years. Your daily encouragement puts a smile on my face!
