You have a sig­nif­i­cant fol­low­ing on In­sta­gram. How has so­cial me­dia af­fected your ca­reer?

In the be­gin­ning, I had no fun us­ing [In­sta­gram], but now, it’s like my port­fo­lio. I’m cre­at­ing a cer­tain look for my page and am al­ways think­ing what my next post will be.

You’ve worked with ma­jor brands like Re­volve, Luxe Car­tel, and Beach Bunny Swimwear. What’s the best part of be­ing a model?

Trav­el­ing. I love to ex­pe­ri­ence new cul­tures and try new food.

Fit­ness rou­tine?

I work out be­cause it makes me feel good, and I love to do it in the morn­ing be­cause it gives me en­ergy for the day. I need to be pushed, so I com­bine Pi­lates and per­sonal train­ing at Anatomy at 1220 (1220 20th St., Miami Beach, 786-213-1220; anato­myat1220.com).

I like the vibe there.

Cheat meal?

I’m the big­gest foodie ever! I can’t say no to pizza and ice cream. Ben & Jerry’s is the way to go—i’ll get a whole pint for my­self!

Who in­spires you?

I look up to so many beau­ti­ful and suc­cess­ful peo­ple, but my big­gest in­spi­ra­tion is my fam­ily. I’m very close to my younger broth­ers. When I’m feel­ing stressed or down, I al­ways call them.

You’ve ac­com­plished so much at just 20 years old. Any ad­vice to as­pir­ing mod­els?

Work on your body and your spirit. You need to have more to of­fer than just your looks; it’s very im­por­tant to have a great per­son­al­ity.

“In­sta­gram is like my port­fo­lio,” says Magic City model Lena Radonjić, who is equally at home on the sands of South Beach as she is in front of a cam­era.
