Parallel Radio Interview :
Can you tell us a bit about you?
I’m a girl who grew up with a single mom of 2 in Post Soviet Latvia, who left her home and country at 16 years old to travel the world and make money being a model in Europe and Asia, with the minimal English and no money in the pocket or support from family, made it quite well and came to America at 22 years old, worked hard and made it to where I am now.
What other career could we imagine for you?
Business woman in the beauty industry.
Favorite project you worked on?
I love projects where I’m in charge of the creative. I’ve worked on some campaigns for start up companies where I had control and input in the creative and production and I’ve been able to see how my input and participation has helped these companies grow and profit from the campaign directly, so those types of projects are my favorite.
What music means to you?
Music is tuning me into certain moods, I use it to help me get into the state I want to be in – inspired, or relaxed, or enjoying the drive, or sing my heart out.
I always have exciting and unique social media projects evolving around me and non of them are the same. It’s really fun to be a part of the Instagram Marketing era.
…What were you doing Saturday night?
I was in bed by 10. I love to use weekends for chilling :).
What do you have in your pockets right now?
Scrunchies and a tube of watermelon BreathRox – my new addiction 🙂
…A last word in french for our readers?
J’adore les crêpes au Nutella. (Why in French by the way?)
About Julia Lescova :
Julia Lescova was born in small town in Latvia. With her mother and older brother Maxim, Julia experienced a difficult upbringing that would influence her drive to succeed. Although modeling would be a natural progression for the Latvian beauty, she found a passion for dance and performing at an early age. Her mother enrolled her into a ballet school at the age of 5 and into musical school to play piano at the age of 7 where she excelled in both. She flourished at the arts for 7 years studying Latin American and ballroom dancing before taking an interest in modeling.As a teenager, Julia Lescova knew she wanted to be a model and realized her dream when she was noticed by Latvia’s most prestigious modeling agency. Within a year, she was working consistently and could finally help to support her mother with her flourishing career. She landed her first cover for a national Latvian magazine at age 16. This was incredible exposure for the Latvian teenager.
At 17 she traveled to Milan which would take her career to the next level. Still in school and determined to graduate, Julia Lescova would travel back and forth from Milan to her home to finish her schooling. But she was up for the challenge and would complete in 3 weeks what other classmates were doing in twice the time. And in between she was traveling to all of the major cities where she worked with a laundry list of top designers.
