"My dreams change as I move through life, but one dream I have for the future is to be able to look back on my life without regrets."

ELENE

My name is Elene. I’m a model, wife, and good friend. I’m from Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. We all have people and places that, for better or worse, help create the person we are today– the city I was born and raised in has a rich culture and big history, and it has definitely had a positive impact on the person I am today. 

I’m a very loyal, hard working, and family-oriented person. I give big credit to my friends and family for all the opportunities that I’ve had in my life– they have definitely helped shape me. Some favorite items I have are photos of my family, and jewelry that was given to me by my mother and grandmother– these have the most sentimental value for me.

I love to learn and educate myself about subjects I was not aware of; that’s what pulls me out of bed in the morning. It’s very important for me to start the morning early. I drink water, make coffee, play music, check emails, the news, messages, and then head to work. I look forward to growing every day. 

My personal beauty ritual starts with washing my face every morning followed by applying serum. I then follow with a little bit of concealer, blush and lip balm.

Beauty for me is the presence, confidence and kindness of a person. This goes far beyond looks. I’ve learned over the years that inner beauty is the only kind of beauty that matters. True beauty is born from our actions, aspirations and the kindness we offer to others.

I personally feel most beautiful the morning after a good night’s sleep. I feel most alive when I’m in nature, though. Nature has so much positivity that leaves me feeling refreshed. When I feel tired or run down, I always try to do some activity. Go for a bike ride in nature, meditate, or simply workout. After a long day, I like to take a hot shower, get in comfortable clothes, put on a LESSE face masque, and play music. Or chat with family members and just watch movies.

“I’ve learned over the years that inner beauty is the only kind of beauty that matters. True beauty is born from our actions, aspirations and the kindness we offer to others.”

Lately, I’ve been practicing becoming more understanding and less judgmental towards other people’s actions, and toward myself too. I’ve learned to put myself in other’s shoes– it helps me easily connect with people. I wish I had found this ability years ago.

I have no idea where life will take me, but I hope to be more comfortable with myself. In a better mindset, living in a better world. My dreams change as I move through life, but one dream I have for the future is to be able to look back on my life without regrets.

My greatest hope for humanity is for us all to be closer to nature and develop positive relationships with each other. Have the courage to live a life true to yourself, not the life others expect of you.
