About me.

I was born and grew up in Kazakhstan ( a place that many people don’t think exists). Studied well in school and college, but never knew what I wanted to do, and since I was 6 years old I always told my mum that I will live somewhere else. And as we all know, universe serves you exactly what you “ordered”. I entered a competition and after winning it, got a contract to work in London. And that’s where my story began. I started modelling for magazines like Vogue (Italy, Russia, Germany), Marie Claire, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, ID, Tatler and many more, walking runway shows and doing a lot of exciting shoots. It was never my dream, but it was the path that I chose.

I grew up very quickly. I learnt through trial and error how to be responsible, agile, persistent, courageous, imperfect and grateful. I strive to do my best every day and have so many dreams and goals to achieve. I am a dreamer. I love people and I love doing good for people in any way I can, be it giving the best advice I have, being a pretty good listener or just baking some cookies. I’m still growing and still learning, and I want to share all the great lessons I find along the way with the people who need them. And that’s what I want to write about, my life, and everything that comes with it.

Right now I live in New York and travel all over the world, looking for my purpose in life and doing my best at staying present and grounded. Where I’ll be in the next few years, I have no clue, but that’s the exciting part.

So this is me! I mean, there is so much more, but we can start with this. And if you do want to ask me any other question, however big or small it is, like what’s my favourite colour, am I a dog person or why I think the universe works with you and not against you, please do email me!

Love, Alek.
