1. Please tell us about yourself.
I was born and still live in Russia, a city of Kalininrad, which is the most western region of the country located between Poland and Lithuania. (my parents live in Kalinigrad, my sister and her family live in Canada). I have a beloved man, we have been together for many years. We are planning to have children in the near future.
I support and try to promote healthy lifestyle, do a lot of sport, take care of my eating habits – I am a vegetarian.  Once a week I do a water free fast.
For more than ten years I have been working in banking. I am a startup manager. I started and developed three banks in the Kaliningrad region. At the moment, I am a head of Pochta Bank in the Kalinigrad region, which is the biggest bank in Russia, part of VTB group. I have more than 160 employees. The branch I am in charge of has been recognized to be the best in the company several times. In the year 2017 I was on the top three list of the most effective managers.
I am a member of Association called Businesswomen of the region, which unites women and helps in different business and social projects: support of the disabled, charity, socially responsible business, healthcare, environment. For all my life I have been involved in self- education and development. I have done numerous specialized programmes and courses related to business as well as health and lifestyle. Participation in the pageant encourages work on myself and improvements in different areas.  I enjoy being able to realize myself in new areas. Besides, there is a stereotype that a woman in business has a hard personality with typically male character traits. However, taking part in the pageant lets demonstrate by many sides of female nature.
2. Please tell us about your pageant history
This is going to be my very first time of participating in a pageant. However, last year I became a runner-up in a contest “ Business women of Russia” organized by an international consulting company Ernst and Young. Also, more than once did I become the winner in professional contests within my company.
3. Who is your role model and why?
I do not have a particular role model. I always rely on myself and every day try to be better that on the previous day. Of course, I am guided by the world and people surrounding me. Each of us has something good and important that inspires me to develop. What is more, I love learning about success stories and biographies of great and meaningful people. Oprah Winfrey is one of such women for me now. And her motto is get ready today to the opportunities life can give you tomorrow.
4. Who inspired you to represent your country and compete in Mrs Asia Pacific Beauty Pageant 2018?
During a charity event organized by Children’s emergency fund ”believe in miracle” that I actively support I met a winner of several beauty pageants. She inspired me to try something new for myself and do good for the people around me.


5. what is the first thing you wish to do, if you win the top 5 main international title?                                                                                                                                                                                            Relax. That is a joke. To begin with, I will thank everyone who helped me to prepare for the pageant. And of course, I am planning to use the title to develop projects related to mentoring and charity work.

6.  What is the biggest challenge you face as a working woman today?                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Time management. Effective combination of the most important things in life and finding a good balance among health, family, friends, career, self-development, hobby, travelling, art.

7.  if you have the power to do anything you wished to improve the status of women in our country, what would you do? And why?                                                                                                                  I would increase the amount of social allowance to young mothers. I would also redirect finances on the country’s level to children’s education. I believe that education is the basis of state’s development and humanity on the whole.
