The world of modeling isn’t always the easiest to get in to and it demands a certain type of person to have their appearance so closely monitored at every turn. While Cristina Samohvalov always knew she was beautiful, taking the plunge and stepping into the world of modeling was a scary one, to begin with. The good news is that she took this plunge because we now get to witness her growing in strength with every shoot she does.
As a highly creative person, the world of swimsuit modeling suits Samohvalov down to a T. Not only does her creativity hold her in good stead for achieving the most incredible shots, she is also highly resilient. As she openly says herself, the worst thing about modeling is “The fact that it can get so negative and full of jealousy and hatred from other people towards you.” It takes a special kind of woman to take the negativity and insults on the chin, however, with beauty and talent like hers, it’s easy to see why she doesn’t let other people get to her.
Although she’s only 20, Cristina has a wise head on her shoulders and is currently studying for a degree in medical bioscience. It’s not very often that you meet someone with talent, beauty, and brains, however, Miss Samohvalov has them all in abundance and isn’t afraid to show it.
Cristina Samohvalov is the kind of person that sees beauty in the smallest things in life and is able to enjoy the finer things in life. When asked about what she sees as beautiful she says “Sunsets and kind people”, the kind of answer you might expect from someone twice her age.
While she sees good in most things she also knows how difficult the modeling industry can be, especially for young talent that is rising through the ranks. One of the nastiest and bitchiest industries on the planet, it takes someone with a hard shell to move into it in the first place. Her advice to newcomers would be the stay true to yourself and be grateful for every opportunity that comes your way. It isn’t always easy to get into modeling but finding a way of dealing with the negative things people say is imperative to success in this line of work.
Cristina Samohvalov is one of the freshest faces we’ve seen on the swimsuit modeling scene in a long time and with her beauty radiating from the inside out we expect we’ll be seeing a lot more of her over the coming years. A truly stunning individual in a world where negativity and jealousy is strife, she fully deserves to be this month’s Swimsuit Model of the Month.
