Belarus native and international model Valerie Vivier has blossomed in Los Angeles. We caught up with Valerie just before returning to her homeland and had a chance to ask her some questions about modeling, Belarus and men.
Q:Tell us about your experience as a model?
Growing up in Belarus every girl is encouraged to model, so my mother enrolled me to the most famous agency when I was 12 years old. Being a daughter of a military family and only child I was always extremely disciplined so it was a good fit. I’m a bit of a perfectionist so even the most difficult shoots were a great challenge that I embraced.

Q:What’s something about yourself that might surprise people?
My appearance and inner world do not fully correspond with each other; I may look like vanilla girl, but really I’m a lover of adrenaline and thrill seeker / adrenaline junkie, and love action sports. I bungee jump, skydive, kick box, surf am a champion jet-skier. I don’t procrastinate; if I want to do something I DO IT .. I don’t believe in waiting.

Q:Tell us a bit about yourself?
Traveling a lot as a child I’ve lived in almost every country on the EU continent, China, Africa, Asia. Last year when I visited Miami and Los Angeles I decided to study acting and pursue my dream. Acting has always been my choice profession; even as a small child I promised my childhood class that one day I would say “hello” from Hollywood. Plus I’m incredibly good at it. ; )
