1) You are a very beautiful woman, certainly you receive many propositions from men, how are you dealing with that?
Answer: I appreciate every email or letter I receive, It is pleasant if people show you attention. Given that It is known that I am a married woman, I did not have an unpleasant experience with persistent or unpleasant mail in this way.
2) How do you keep your live private? Since you belong to well know celebrities…
Answer: Yes, people recognize me, but often they don´t remember where from. But it is cute and I cant tell that I would have a problem with my fame.
3) How did you find yourself doing this kind of work?
Answer: I was studying glass technológie, but since I was little I have had my dream, m world in which I was living in. I loved to pretend to be a news anchor, I used to sing, dance and I liked to perform in front of my class.
I have gained my experience with the microphone in the regional radio, which was my fate for many years. Gradually I have been gaining more and more experience as a anchorwoman on culture events and after that it was a small step into television. I have went for an audition, first I was hosting a morning broadcast, after that a knowledge based game called Duel, regional news reporting and after that came the offer to host the main RTVS news.
4) When does a news anchor come to work?
Answer: Well I don´t “go to work” just before the airtime as would many imagine. I am in work at 1pm- 2pm. If I have to get prepared for the noon broadcast I will come sooner, If evening I will come later.
5) How do you spend you free time?
Answer: I enjoy my time spent with a good book, or I with my friends and family, but what I love are the walks in forest where I am gaining back my strength, or cycling which is also a friend of mine if I need to relax.
6) Do you exercise?
Answer: Yes, I visit the gym regularly
