Such an absolute honor to have you on Playboy! Tell us about your daily schedule as a model, do you have a routine? Thanks to Playboy keeping me very busy! Things have changed a lot ever since I came to Playboy Centerfold! I have insane travel schedules, so my daily schedule changes depending on my trip. During the day you will see me (when I am not doing photoshoot or phone call) wearing leggings and T-shirts, exploring around my hotel holding takeout coffee, or emailing any cafe near my hotel. Often I have lunch with assistants or friends. I try not to do too many tasks daily and try to prioritize important tasks, and work with assistants. 

How do you like to begin your day? No matter where I am, first thing in the morning I have to drink a large cup of water and eat fresh fruits. Then I put on leggings and go for a morning walk. 

What are some of your biggest dreams you hope to achieve? I have dreams with a timeline. Last year and this year I have achieved my biggest goal – bringing my Playboy page to the top level. I have been featured on Playboy network multiple times and offered to work with top agencies. My next goal is to bring the highest quality streaming on Playboy. 

What helps you decompress and relax? I found out that deep religious practice helps me the most when I am overcoming and feel exhausted from everything. 

Who has been the most influential person in your life and why? There are several people who have had a huge impact in my life. It’s very difficult to pick just one. I have learned so much from them. I always appreciate being able to meet them in my life. 

How romantic are you? When I have enough time to prepare, I could be the most romantic person on the planet believe me. It is VERY important to give enough time to your playmate such as, give notice ahead when we are traveling to the same city or same country. Well… nowadays I feel like I almost gave up 🙁 Why is everyone so busy! 

What is the most memorable date you’ve ever had? Lately, I have learned something very new! Many restaurants in the United States take apple pay! I went out on a date during the event (Yes, I sneaked out so that I could go on a date) and my date took me to a Korean BBQ restaurant. My date lost his wallet and paid for dinner with Apple Pay. I also didn’t bring my wallet, so it was memorable. When we met a second time, we just ordered room service and I put the dinner bill on my room service tap because I thought he wouldn’t bring his wallet. That was also memorable because it was my first time ever paying a dinner date bill in my life. I don’t think I did properly say goodbye. I just let him go because I was too afraid of being seen together and getting him in trouble. I am still learning this – protecting my date and friends’ privacy. It is really important to me. 

What was the biggest lesson from your worst breakup? Everything is a lesson. I am trying very hard not to repeat the same mistakes. I consider having a relationship is almost equal to running a multi-million-dollar business. Relationships require a massive level of understanding of each other, and it is very important to love a person as who he is, not trying to change the person. Also, I was not mature for the relationship. There is so much understanding needed for dating someone, also I have to understand the nature of the person. 

Would you rather be loved, respected, or admired? -ha-ha I’m not sure I think not in any of those.

Are you a city traveler or nature explorer? I am both! I have traveled to 4 different countries already this year ( going to travel more) and I am traveling city to city every week. 

What’s on your travel bucket list  Egypt! (You will see why when you see photos in this month’s Playboy New Zealand).
