24FashionTV had a chance to sit down with a winner of Mrs Russian America 2021, a 30-year-old Russian-born Ekaterina Koltunova who is an acting student living in Los Angeles.

24FashionTV: Were you shocked when you won Mrs Russian America?

Yes I was shocked and I was very happy. It was like a dream. I saw people were standing, applauding and cameras were flashing. It was unbelievable experience, and I am very grateful that I have had it.

Was it your first pageant?

Yes it was :-)

Were you nervous on stage?

Yes just a little, because the stage gave me an enormous adrenaline rush, and that definitely made me nervous.

Did you always want to be a model and win pageants?

I always wanted to be an actress, but I like modeling too, but I can say that I did not dream about being a model because I always thought that models should be very tall, and I am only 5 feet 6 inches. But now days fashion and views totally changed

What's next for you in your career?

I would like to continue pursuing my career as an actress and I would love to play in theater.

What role do you think social network plays in the modeling industry?

It plays a huge role cause now everything comes from internet.

Do you think having a large following on social media helps to find more modeling jobs?

Yes I do think so. It is sad, but mostly companies want to work with people who are famous, so thats why they can get more clients to their businesses. But I think when something goes from inside it will give you more values than just quantity.

What do you enjoy doing the most in your spare time?

I like to watch movies, listen to music and read books.
