Marija moved to
She talks about her childhood and said “I was actually painfully shy for most of my childhood and I spent most of my time with my older sister. Our parents were hard working immigrants and we knew that our lives were tougher than most kids. All in all we stuck together as a family and we all turned out to be amazing individuals. I think the most special thing about it all is that my sister is still my best friend and it’s nice to know there is someone in your life who knows everything about you and will always be there.”
Marija’s childhood dream job was to become a dentist, but she has a lot of fun being a model, especially doing glamour shoots, this is her favorite type of modeling and it makes her feel great and sexy. She said, “This type of modeling usually works best when the photos capture what is already naturally beautiful about you, like amazing curves or a gorgeous smile.”
I was surprised when I learned that Marija had just recently dropped 20 pounds, she felt that she was a little over the healthy weight for her small stature. So she decided to loose it and it seems it wasn’t difficult at all for her. She said; “I run about 5k at least 5 days a week and do weights a few times each week as well. It is easy for me to do this because I actually enjoy the run; it relives stress and gives me time to listen to music! My diet is pretty simple, with mostly veggies, chicken, and light carbs. I never eat fried food or drink pop, and rarely eat sweets. It's incredibly tough but to be honest I was doing this even before I started modeling. It has huge health benefits on top making me look great.” I think, this is a great plan for anyone who is looking for a new lifestyle or to just get generally healthier and back in shape.
Marija is such a vibrant and happy girl, she loves to party, travel and go shopping. Although it’s not really easy on her pocket, I like that she wants to use any opportunity to have fun and be happy. She really cares about enjoying every moment of life and one of her wishes in life is to help people be happy and to not focus on the negativities in their life so much.
Other than modeling Marija is finishing her undergrad this year in Psychology and is in the process of applying to several universities for a graduate program in Occupational Theapy. On the side she loves playing tennis, reading, and watching basketball with a beer and a friend!
