Shardul Pandey Talk To Violetta Solonko
Shardul Pandey: I welcome you Violetta at SANGKRIT.net, please tell our netizens about yourself.
Violetta Solonko: My name is Violetta Solonko, I am 21 years old. I come from Chernovtsy, a beautiful city in the West of Ukraine. I am Ukrainian with Russian origins by the paternal grandfather. I lived in Ukraine until the age of ten. Since 2003 I live in Italy with my mom. As a child I always dreamed. I loved to fantasize about the future and the great thing is that, as soon as I have a free second, I still continue to do so. I have been practicing different types of sports from tennis to swimming, from football to volleyball. But my greatest passions have always been dancing and rhythmic gymnastics. I practiced dancing for thirteen years, since I was 4 to 17. While rhythmic gymnastics has been a real challenge for me. I do not really believe in myself, but when after only two months of training I placed second in a race. From that moment I began to practice at a competitive level for four years. I loved going to train, to prepare the choreography for competitions and for the wise. Every time I could not wait to set foot in the training room where I spent entire afternoons. When we moved in the south of Italy after two years I decided reluctantly to leave trainings because unfortunately there was not a lot of organization.
One of my dreams has always been to get into the entertainment world. At age 15 I remember my first experience, a casting for a well known agency in Rome, which has its headquarters in Milan. I was taken, but had to refuse because of studies. A month later I participated in a beauty contest Miss Amantea and then from there it all began. I took part in fashion shows, commercials, photo shoots and a beauty contest “Miss the most beautiful in the world” where I came fourth in the final, winning the national title of “Miss Telegenia” . I love so much this world! I always have a lot of fun! By the end of October 2013 I started a blog about my lifestyle, fashion, wellness and recipes. Something that packs a bit all the feminine sphere. In just two and a half months I have almost 5000 people who follow me onViolettas.altervista.org. My readers write to me from abroad and even from other continents such as Brazil and Canada. I could not be happier in this wonderful period of my life. I thank God every day for everything I have. For the fantastic family in which I grew up, for the values transmitted, health and love. I have the best boyfriend in the world. I will never stop thanking my readers for their love and endless support. Every day they give me a lot of joy.
Shardul Pandey: What were you doing five minutes before this interview?
Violetta Solonko: Five minutes before doing this interview I wrote an article for my readers on my blogViolettas.altervista.org.
Shardul Pandey: What made you want to pursuer a modeling career instead of any other career?
Violetta Solonko: The modeling career has always been one of my biggest dreams. I could not even call it “work” because it is a passion that gives me many satisfactions. It makes me happy, makes me travel and allows me to work in the fashion world. Like almost most of the women I have a little soft spot for fashion. Of course, I do not lose my head to the clothing, but I love to customize my own style and go shopping. I also love to pose for photo shoots and take part in fashion shows. A career that I would like to take is that of a fashion designer. I love designing the clothes, the dresses and especially the wedding dress. I would like to create a collection of my own. In addition, for some months now I have discovered another world in which I find myself very much at ease: the world of fashion bloggers. I created a blog of my own that I take care of every day. I write my thoughts, feelings, and of course I talk about fashion. It a kind of diary open heart to help in my small way , to make this world better. I have readers from all over the world, and the message that I would like to pass them is that they keep the feet firmly on the ground and appreciate the little things because it is the most beautiful and special thing that there may be. The fame and wealth are nothing in comparison.
Shardul Pandey: What do you feel that separates you from other models that are in the game right now?
Violetta Solonko: I am just at the beginning. I believe that each of us is special and I wish the best to all people. Unfortunately, the entertainment world is not a world at all easy.
Shardul Pandey: Where have you made appearances? (video, print, etc)
Violetta Solonko: Surely with the press. Every time came out a few article with me in the newspaper or magazine I had the phone that was on fire from the phone calls, the cell phone was flooded with messages and free from junk mail.
Shardul Pandey: Out of all the work you’ve done so far, which was your favorite video or photo shoot?
Violetta Solonko: All photo shoots were very funny and entertaining, but my favorites are two! The first is without a doubt when me and my boyfriend have done testimonial for a grand hotel dressed as bride and groom. And to think that we were together for less than a month, haha… Now we find ourselves catalogs and mega billboards throughout the region. The second one, always with my boyfriend we have been chosen to act as a testimonial for a chain of pools. We had fun as hell to spend the entire day going from one pool to another!
Shardul Pandey: What projects are you currently working on?
Violetta Solonko: Currently I work with a lot of love to my blog site in reserving many plans for the future.
Shardul Pandey: Is there anything else you want to do outside of modeling?
Violetta Solonko: Outside the world of modelling I’d love to become an entrepreneur. I’d like to have my own business.
Shardul Pandey: When do you feel most beautiful?
Violetta Solonko: Enough to please me very much, haha… I believe that self-esteem does not depend on how much you are beautiful, but how much you love yourself. Everyone is gorgeous!
Shardul Pandey: What’s the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night?
Violetta Solonko: The first thing I do in the morning is to prepare the green tea, and the last one I do before I go to sleep is call my boyfriend.
Shardul Pandey: What makes you laugh uncontrollably?
Violetta Solonko: Definitely my boyfriend! He is the perfect man and make me laugh to tears is one of his strengths.
Shardul Pandey: What do you do to de-stress after a bad day?
Violetta Solonko: The company of the right people is the best way to relax. Whether it is an evening at home or outside, the important thing is to have people who love you truly!
Shardul Pandey: What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re with your friends?
Violetta Solonko: A nice dinner out in the company of an excellent chitchat.
Shardul Pandey: What inspired your passion for modeling?
Violetta Solonko: No doubt the Victoria’s Secret Angels and the desire to appear on billboards.
Shardul Pandey: What excites & motivates you about modeling?
Violetta Solonko: As I said before, it’s my passion. But it is also an area where you have to go always with feet of lead. It very easy to “fall” or meet the wrong people.
Shardul Pandey: What does your career do for you?
Violetta Solonko: My career gives me a lot of satisfaction.
