Such an absolute honour to have you on Playboy! Tell us about your daily schedule as a model, do you have a routine? Not much, my life is crazy with all the travelling I do and I love it. Having a routine would get me bored really fast, I need the excitement, see new things everyday, meet new people.

How do you like to begin your day? I usually start with a shower and a healthy breakfast such as fruits and yogurt, and if I have the time for it I like to go out for a walk.

What are some of your biggest dreams you hope to achieve? Someday I wish to work with art, like having an art gallery.

What helps you decompress and relax? Self care. A long bath, getting the hair and nails done, a nice massage.

Who has been the most influential person in your life and why? My father. I’m so thankful for the opportunities I’ve had because of him, such as learning many languages as a kid and having a good education. That opens so many doors

How romantic are you? Very. I always try being thoughtful, doing the small things that show you really pay attention to what the person likes and needs. I love surprising my boyfriends with romantic trips too

What is the most memorable date you’ve ever had? I told him I felt like eating Italian food so he flew me to Florence for pasta and one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted. I love spontaneous people that randomly make fun plans and just go for it.

What was the biggest lesson from your worst breakup? Being in love and being together for convenience are two very different things. Make sure you find one that is truly in love. Also, don’t ever settle for the bare minimum.

Would you rather be loved, respected, or admired? Admired. Respect is more about the others than you and anyone can be loved – every jack has his jill. Being admired is different, it requires a good personality, having great success, being really good at something

Are you a city traveller or nature explorer? City for sure. Impossible to get bored with the endless things to do, restaurants, bars, concerts, events, museums, cinema. Also the convenience of delivery and cabs are things I can’t live without.

What’s on your travel bucket list? Asia, like Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand.
