At Elite Model Look we say: “your differences make our world”. What makes you different?
I’m the kind of person who really goes for something once I start. I never do anything by halves. If I do something I do it with everything I have! I just want to meet new people, learn languages and be as good as I can be.
What is your passion?
I love sport. I’m not someone who can sit around on the computer all day! I need to be busy and on the move. I love swimming, it has been my passion since the first day I started until now!
Do you have a favourite figure in the fashion industry?
At the moment, my favorite is a Czech designer Adam Kost. He is young, interesting and I think he is a good designer.
What is your favorite…
Singer: Ed Sheeran. He has some awesome songs; his lyrics feel real, and I just really like him!
Musical instrument: I play guitar. At least I am trying to! I like playing guitar, because of how it sounds, and I like that feeling when you play a song you love.
School subject: I like sport, I did a lot of sports and I believe that movement is very important for everyone. It is good to move, especially if you have to sit down a lot for work or school.
Where are you happiest?
It is not about where, but with who. I am happiest when I am with my girlfriend. Anywhere, just with her!
If you could go anywhere in the world – where you haven’t already been – where would you go?
I would love to go to New York. I always wanted to go there. I want to see Central Park, the Empire State Building and it seems like a really interesting place.
How does it feel to represent the Czech Republic at the 35th Elite Model Look World Final?
It feels awesome. I never expected to win it and I am so glad that I won! I heard about the competition from my mum, she encouraged me to apply. I went to a casting, and I got lucky! I had no idea that I would win when I applied, I just wanted to give it a try. I believe that if something’s meant to be, it’ll happen. I never planned to win, not even in my wildest dreams. I’d love to be a model, I think you’d meet lots of interesting people and it seems fun!
Tell us about the Czech Republic!
Czech Republic is known for beer! Our breweries make the best beer in the world. I love our culture. We still have some villages that keep our traditional culture alive. People there still wear traditional clothes and have celebrations just like our ancestors did. I’m proud of being from Czech Republic because we are small but still quite strong and independent.
