Read excerpts from the interview below:
On her personal bio-data:
“I was born January 19, 1991, to a family of three, as only girl and the oldest child. I study at University of Belgrade in the Republic of Serbia, in the Faculty of Political Science – Department of Social Policy.I am on scholarship and busy with my masters at the moment. I am working with a non-profit organization for education of women and children in Third World countries and I am planning to start one myself. I also work as a translator. I fluently speak five languages (including pidgin). I am ambassador of DFNG’ fashion line from London. From time to time I do modeling jobs, but I really don’t take them too serious. Not my priority.”
On how they met:
“We have one mutual amazing friend, a girl called Oma. She was just too sure that me and IK would make one perfect match. She introduced him to my Instagram page, then he did the rest of the work. He asked for my BBM pin, next thing he got me on my phone 24/7.I got to discover a male version of me! It feels too right.”
On what they have in common:
“We are too much alike. If we were from the same country, I would never doubt that he might be my long lost twin brother. He knows how I breathe! First time I met a human being that is capable of reading my mind. We share same vision and points of view when it comes to life, love, success and family. He is my pal of life.”
On her parents’ reaction when they first learnt about Ogbonna:
“They all adore him cause of his amazing personality, big heart and the fact that he treats me like a real man should. Every normal parents are happy with their children’s happiness.”
On how long they have been dating:
“I have a feeling like it’s been a whole life or two. If you want to enjoy real beauty and power of love, don’t be so busy proving each other right/wrong.We helped each other cure from all negative feelings we carried from the past, we got mature enough to understand that love is really drama-free and selfless and it must be based on unconditional trust. We don’t hide phones from each other, we don’t spy on each other. He is making me feel so confident, like there is nothing I can’t do.”
On her feelings about being an expectant mother:
“Excitement! It’s quite magical to have another human being growing inside of you that is half you and half the person you love. When the doctor announced i was pregnant I had a panic attack for a minute, although we saw it coming. It’s all natural.”
On their plans for marriage:
“I was never the type of girl desperate to get married. Even though my opinion about this changed since I met a man I want to spend my life with, I still prefer to have one intimate, personal ceremony, at the place that makes me happy with people that truly care. When? It might have already happened, but how would you know?”
On her rocking African designers’ outfits:
“Ankara, yeah? I love it. It’s so colourful, feminine and it gives you space to express your creativity when it comes to designs. It could be very elegant, traditional or quite casual and modern. I need to sew some more.”
