Born and raised in a small Belarusian city, Tatiana was profoundly influenced by the stories of World War II survivors and her grandmother, a brave veteran of both World Wars. Growing up surrounded by the scars of conflict, she deeply empathized with the pain, suffering, and resilience of those who had endured so much.
Facing adversity from an early age, Tatiana learned the art of survival as she navigated life without clear guidance or support. At 16, her determination led her to Paris to begin her career at IMG Models after participating in numerous competitions and castings, all while mastering English with just three basic lessons. Eventually, she found her home in the United States.
Tatiana recognizes the immense value of education and support for children from disadvantaged backgrounds, particularly those affected by war. Through her work with the nonprofit, she aims to ensure these children never feel alone in their struggles, empowering them to create brighter futures for themselves and others.
