It was like a ˇ´american dream´  I started dreaming about my model carrer  when i made my first steps. But preferring to spend my  time in modern gymnastic and dancing. I frequently participated in modern gymnastic competitions before I suffered an back injury which prevented me from continuing me hobby. When I was thirteen years old, i was discovered by model ´s scout of Chzechoslovak models, during I was shopping in centre of Prague with my mother. The scout told me, come to the agency and we will see. I was so happy, that I bought my first high heels and  lipstick as a big model . After this my agency sent me to model competion ´´Model of the year´´ and I won it. This was really start of my carrier, but despite a few successes in modeling career, many offers from clients, interests of foreign agencies, I decided first focus fully on my studies. After graduation of the University of Economics in Prague, I threw myself back to be fulltime models. I am working in many European countries such a Italy, France, Monaco, Germany, Austria, Great Britain, I also worked in China. Now focus on American market as a Los Angeles and New York, where i made a big campings and walked for many fashion weeks.
