„I met Paulina at Rotterdam Fashion Week and was truly impressed by her charm and amazing designs. We stayed in touch and even collaborated on a photoshoot, which I absolutely loved.

My dream was to walk the runway at Paris Fashion Week as a model, and thanks to Paulina, it happened even sooner than I expected. I admire how she creates unique fashion pieces that not only work on the runway but also in everyday life. Her fabrics are so distinctive that you can easily spot them in a crowd.

As a professional model, I am thrilled to walk alongside women who may not be in this field. I believe that every person is uniquely beautiful and has the power to express themselves in any way they desire, and it’s Paulina who beautifully showcases this to the world.

It’s an honor to support PAULINA’S FRIENDS and be a part of such a unique project!“

What is the bravest step you have taken in your life?

The bravest step in my life was allowing myself to be me and following my dreams. I could have had a completely different life, doing an office job and regretting that I gave up my dreams of being a model and building my own business.

Your profession? If self-employed: what were the biggest challenges and learnings? What would you recommend to young entrepreneurs?

As a confidence coach and model, the biggest challenge has been breaking traditional stereotypes in the fashion world. My advice to young entrepreneurs is to stay true to your vision, persevere in the face of challenges, and surround yourself with a supportive team who shares your values.

What is your next goal for your company?

My next goal is to expand my brand. I want to create an academy that helps individuals, especially those in the fashion industry, build and radiate confidence and live their dream life.

I am a self-made model at the beginning of her great career. I aspire to be a role model for those who believe in the power of self-assurance. To achieve this, I just need to keep doing what I do: believe in myself, be proactive, and enjoy the process.

What does beauty mean to you?

Beauty, for me, is a reflection of inner confidence, self-acceptance, and positive energy. True beauty is not confined to physical appearance but is illuminated by a radiant personality.

„Real diversity“ is about acknowledging and celebrating the richness of different backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences, where every person can be their true self.
