As a fellow second-year law student at Regent, Olga encapsulates the saying, “Beauty and Brains.” She is incredibly bright and motivated, while also having incredible fashion sense. In my two years of getting to know her, I have never seen her represent anything other than style and grace. In her own words, “External beauty is what gets you noticed; however, internal beauty is what gets you remembered.”

When asked about fashion:

“I've had a special love for fashion for as long as I can remember. Even as a child, I didn't just love dressing up, I could even name all the famous designers, models, and recognize clothing name brands. So, having a job in a fashion industry would definitely be a dream for me. Unfortunately, I wasn't gifted with the talents required to be a fashion designer. So, through the years, I have been involved with other fashion related jobs: I did a little modeling, fashion blogging, worked for a customer-made suits company, and started an online store. Then, the idea of being a lawyer in the fashion industry came to me (this would involve working in the trademark and intellectual property fields). And, this is how I ended up in law school.

Currently, I'm not sure I will end up pursuing fashion law; however, I know fashion will always remain a part of my life because it brings me great joy. My favorite brands include J.Crew, Rag&Bone, and Christian Louboutin—I love to mix different styles in my outfits. When I run out of space in my closet, I normally sell my clothes on my eBay store, www.NothingToWearShop.com.”

On personal motivation:

“My dreams motivate me. Also, small accomplishments, and achievements along the way, definitely motivate me to keep working. I draw inspiration from the world around me: some people (some that I know personally and some inspiring public figures), travel, books, movies etc.”

Favorite Clothing Item: “Blazer, because it’s so versatile. I have a collection!”

Favorite Makeup Product: “Definitely red lipstick! It can dress up even the most casual outfit and it's such a time saver! When I don't have time to do my full makeup, I just put on some red lipstick and my face looks ‘done.’”

Favorite Quotes:

  • "I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." --Audrey Hepburn
  • “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” --Muhammad Ali
