big_f1e605df1053a695Charming and cheerful Regina Gorlanova was chosen as the miss of the last winter month. Shortly after the registration, Regina has managed to break through from the newly-accepted participant to the leaders. At the moment she keeps the leading positions in the top 10 in Insta Asia beauty contest . In her interview miss February told us why Jakarta attracted her so much and that her ideal man should be quite far from ideal…

IFX: Hello, Regina. The final of the contest is quite far, do you consider the miss February nomination as your little victory?
RG:
Hello! Yes, I’m very pleased with that kind of attention from the management, thank you.

IFX: How did you learn about the InstaForex? Have you ever had any experience of cooperation with our company before the registration in the contest?
RG:
Actually, I’ve learned about the company only when I took part in the contest. My former classmate and friend, who is a Forex trader, proposed me to take part in the contest. This is new and interesting experience for me so I accepted this invitation with great pleasure!

IFX: What made you take part in Miss Insta Asia contest? Dou you really want to win or the prize is not the reason why you have registered in the contest?
RG:
Firstly, I was so excited that I checked the rating and comments every day. But as this contest is very long, I decided to let it take this course. This is an interesting experience; it is similar to an online game. I wouldn’t say that the victory is my sole intention; for me the participation itself is interesting.

IFX: Have you ever taken part in any contests including beauty contests? (If you have, then in which ones and what places did you take)
RG:
I’m not a gambler in my nature and I’m not very fond of contests and competitions. I took part in the contests only if my friends encouraged me to do so.

IFX: Tell us about yourself. What are your plans for the future after the graduation from university?
RG:
I do modeling and acting and this really inspires me. Thus, I’m not sure that shortly after the graduation I will work as graphic designer. Perhaps I will try myself in another field.

IFX: Do you like the long-term planning for years or at least months? Can you follow the plan precisely or do you take the most of your decisions spontaneously? Do you think it is important for a Forex trader?
RG:
No, I absolutely cannot manage the long-term planning! I’d better deal with plans for a week or even for a day. I like spontaneous events and decisions, as they give a lot of emotions. I like the unpredictability but sometimes the planning is necessary. Expectations can bring too much worry, so I to take it easy.

For a Forex trader it is important, of course, to elaborate its own strategy and follow it, to be aware of the peculiarities of the world market. A trader must know how to analyze and forecast events but it is also important to take spontaneous decisions and change one’s plans. Moreover, you should have a good intuition and not to afraid of risks!

IFX: Suppose you were invited to play a role in cinema, what character would you consider interesting to play and why?
RG: I like different genres of cinema and different characters. To reveal my actor’s potential and for my personal experience I would be interested in playing the opposite characters or the characters of different genres– from cartoon or comics to deep emotional drama.

IFX: Which of your qualities are mostly appreciated by your family?
RG:
It is quite complicated to speak of your virtues especially from the point of your family. But I often hear that my family appreciates my support, compassion, understanding, care, easy temper and sense of humor, I suppose. Without these qualities it is quite hard to live in this world.

IFX: You are quite creative person according to your hobbies and photos. As any creative person you must have some “peculiarities”, mustn’t you? Would you tell us about the strangest event in your life?
RG: The strangest event…that’s an interesting question. Something like eating salty crackers with sweet jam? It is quite hard to speak of your own peculiarities. I think other people see a lot of them in me…The only thing I can say is that I don’t like compliments as they make me laugh and I want to run away. It’s strange because to my mind every girl should know how to take compliments. I do not know how to do that yet and I can take them only if they are concrete and true.

IFX: In your questionnaire you mentioned that you like travelling very much. What places that you visited were the most remarkable for you?
RG:
Each place is special and dear to you in its own way…Certain meetings, events, atmosphere are remembered in your memory and heart. At the moment I can say the most remarkable for me was Indonesia, particularly Jakarta. This place is wonderful: there are a lot of nice and friendly people, interesting events, you can always do what you like. The place is perfect as it combines opposite things: wildlife and industrial architecture, wealth and poverty, work and entertainment. Though there are a lot of talks about Bali and how many Russians are there. I hope to visit this island one day.

IFX: What is your ideal man?
RG:
Ideal man…first of all he should not be ideal. Little imperfections make the person more attractive, either its individuality or appearance. I like smart and kind men with easy temper. Sense of humor is also necessary. I like men that can make you laugh and laugh by himself, men with eloquent eyes, cheerful smile and big beautiful hands!

IFX: Do you think that the beauty can save the world?
RG:
Absolutely, the beauty can save and it saves the world! But it is also necessary to consider not only the outside beauty but the inner beauty as well. If a person is beautiful inside, he will be beautiful outside. But whatever beautiful your face is, you cannot be attractive without the inner beauty. All people try to be beautiful but in different ways. You should choose the right one.

IFX: Your figure is perfect! Would you tell us your secret: is it sport, beauty salon or the nature’s gift?
RG:
I’m very flattered, thank you very much, though I don’t think so. Surely genetics is important for figure but actually any figure can be beautiful. The point is how you feel in your body: comfortable or not, whatever they say. It is important to show the advantages of your figure. But if you are perfectionist then you should do sport, eat healthy food and love yourself. This is the key to your success. Personally, I like sport and enjoy physical exercises; I like healthy food. But to be honest I’ve never been obsessed with this as the nature let me not to do so! And I cannot help eating something sweet, this is my personal passion and the secret of the good mood.

IFX: Regina, at the moment your rating is one of the highest. How did you manage to collect that large amount of votes in the shortest period? Why do you think the guests of the site vote for you?
RG:
Personally I have no idea of how do the people choose the one from the whole amount of these charming girls. Do they look at each one or immediately stop at the one they liked. So I cannot say anything on this subject. I simply hope that people enjoy my photos and feel a little warmer and energetic when they see my look. And I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me. I’m still surprised but I’m very grateful, it’s appreciating. Thank you!

IFX:Regina, we thank you for your interesting and informative answers. We wish you every success and let your dream –trip to Bali – will come true!

big_922384831b5a84aaA young mother, trader, financial adviser and author of a book for children – it is all about Marina Zhabina, a participant of the Miss Insta Asia beauty contest coming from Khabarovsk. She managed to be top-rated from the very first days of the contest. We decided to find out what it takes to combine all the above mentioned roles.

IFX: Good day, Marina. We would like to start off by thanking you for giving us an interview. Please tell us a little about yourself.
MG: I got a degree in the field of construction and programming, however, against logic, I work in the sphere of finance. I am a financial adviser, helping people get on well with their own money.

IFX: A constructor-programmer?
MG: Yes, an engineer-constructor and programmer. My speciality is automated building design systems. To tell the truth, I do not know what made me choose a truly male profession.

IFX: How did you come to work in the financial sphere?
MG: It was a chance that brought me to the world of finance! In the age of 20 I got an idea that even though we are taught many subjects, there is a huge gap left: we lack knowledge about our money. Presently, schools and institutes are introducing disciplines developing financial literacy. I have never been happy with following the “earn-spend-earn” principle, so I started to search for relevant information and people who could share their knowledge, and eventually I found them!

IFX: And then you became one of such people…
MG: Exactly! Money is an integral part of our life. Even though people say that money cannot buy happiness, lack of money troubles makes them much happier. I am glad I succeeded in solving these troubles.

IFX: In the profile you described yourself as “a creative yet mathematically inclined person”. How do you manage to reconcile the mathematical mind with the creativity? Is such duality advantageous in life or on the contrary?
MG: Since the age of 4 I have written verse and prose, painted pictures, attended a music academy and theatre studio, took dance classes; so by the moment of entering a higher education institution I had creativity overdose. That is why I chose a technical speciality. At that time I was in love with advanced maths: I could solve three pages of logarithmic equations in one go. However inclination to creativity overruled my zest for maths: I found a job in the TV industry and spent two years managing my own project. By the way, I am presently completing a fairytale. I can’t wait for my fairytale to be published.

IFX: Please tell us more about your book.
MG: Well, the book is titled A Little Big Secret. This is a fairytale which teaches to set goals and achieve them, believing in yourself. The book is a kind of practical guide for children put as a fairytale. I am planning to present part of the released copies to Russian orphan asylums as it is especially important for children without parents to find a source of self-efficacy belief.

IFX: In your profile you also said that you are an achiever, so you have a goal-oriented lifestyle. What is your main achievement in life so far?
MG: I am proud of everything I have today. In every sphere I am engaged I show results highly assessed by others. For instance, there are no people of my age holding a leading position in my professional field. Top managers thought it was impossible. But I did it, even though I do not attach prior significance to having a job because I have a year-and-a half old son. So, this is the achievement I am the most proud of. My friends keep wondering how I manage everything: raising a child, showing excellent results at work, looking after myself, cooking meals three times a day and exploring something new.

IFX: How did you learn about the Miss Insta Asia beauty contest? Why did you decide to participate in it?
MG: I began cooperation with InstaForex Company at the end of the last contest season. Then I decided to take part in the contest if there is another season. I am a woman, apparently, a beautiful woman. And I am a trader; I would be happy to employ the main prize in trading. The victory would bring me closer to the goal of publishing my book. I guess it is not worth mentioning charity which I do it regularly. Showing myself is not a real motive as well: there are many other ways to do it. I just came to win!

IFX: You also donate money to charity, don’t you?
MG: Yes, I do, for a long time. It is quite simple. I regularly transfer funds to accounts of reliable charity funds, sometimes to accounts of certain children in need for expensive treatment. It was a shock for me to learn how many children actually need support. Every little helps! This method is more effective than finding a person or an organization to pay for the treatment of someone’s child.

IFX: Our contest is called Miss Insta Asia. Marina, what does Asia mean to you?
MG: I was born and presently live in the Asian part of the Russian Federation. But real Asia is something more than just a place on the globe. Asia means seducing eyes of Indian women, wisdom and diligence of Chinese people, honour of Japanese samurai and passion of Caucasians. Asia implies a numerous contrasts. Moreover, Asia is home for 4 out of 7 billion people of the world.

IFX: To your mind, are women coming from the Asian part of Russia and from Asia as such different from European women?
MG: In my opinion, Asian women are true women in the ancient meaning of this word. They are real domestic goddesses. As for European women, they are mostly emancipated and independent.

IFX: What about you? Which group do you belong?
MG: I am fortunate to have such a good man beside as my husband. He makes me a true woman. After all, a woman’s greatest strength is her weakness. And I can be weak!

IFX: What was the starting point of your forex trading way?
MG: It was my desire to open up to the opportunities life provides. There was a certain period when I was considering all offers I got. I went through a lot of offers; Forex persisted.

IFX: What is your current attitude to trading on the foreign exchange market? Do you regard it as a permanent job or rather a hobby?
MG: This is my job which makes most part of my income. Besides, I am now strengthening partner relationships with InstaForex Company: I am planning to open a representative office in the city I live in.

IFX: It will be our pleasure to cooperate with you. Thank you very much for the interview. We wish you luck in both the contest and trading!
