We often went out of town to a small village in the countryside to visit my grandmother and great-grandmother,” she said. “I was walking on the street with my mother in Budapest, near where I live, when Balazs, who’s now my manager (Icon Model Management), saw me. He asked me if I could go to their office and took some test photos. Then I started modeling.”

Here’s my number.’ And she didn’t message me for six months.”
