„Beauty is a feeling. Beauty is something we can’t touch just like that, materialize it. Beauty is me smiling to my dream. Beauty is a confident walk in the morning to the metro station. Beauty is crying your soul out. Beauty is art.“

Virna H.

„Feelings are the tools who drive our body fluids. At the moment I took my bag and went on my way to You, Konstantin, I was excited and scared. The lost girl was rescued with a friendly wave across the street. Smiles. Two warm smiles. I felt safe. I started to trust you and my beauty. I saw in your eyes my beauty. Trust. Adrenaline. Loved my hair. My body. Let my reaction flow. Fluids control our body. You swam, not against them, you find the flow. We made it to the waterfalls. You found the oasis in me. „

What were your thoughts when you saw your portraits?
„Oh, am I that gorgeous? Is that what my people see? Is that my skin or is the light? Hm, I may consider try modeling. 😀 I found my peace with my surface. I new the worth of my inner beauty and now I am more conscious about my beautiful cover. The black and white is also something that showed me that my blue eyes can shine without all their blueness. I need this for my dream, for my book cover by KM. That one I like to send my Grandma. Oh, and that one is for my 90yearold self. Hm, that could also be my Tinder profile pic. 😀
Danke! 

Looking and seeing, two activities which differ. I look, observe and process facts. I feel and emotionaly conclude who I see.
I am proud of you Virna. I am proud of you how far have you come. I see you better and more real then ever. I needed this photography mirror to remind that I am so close to my dream. I saw me. I saw the whole picture of me, my soul, my work, my dream, my love, my art, my body, my peace and future. „

Do you use makeup? / What does beauty mean to you?

„I never used make up till my first job day where I thought it should be like that, you wear makeup when you start working. And I was 23. The first and last day at work with make-up make-up. I then just used a bit of mascara, to get my eyes pop. But there is also the sustainable point of view, and animal friendly products etc. too toxic in so many ways.

Beauty is a feeling. Beauty is something we can’t touch just like that, materialize it. Beauty is me smiling to my dream. Beauty is a confident walk in the morning to the metro station. Beauty is crying your soul out. Beauty is art. Art is something that not everyone understands. Let’s keep it that way. Every one needs to find its own beauty and live it. „

Please tell us more about yourself!

„Hi, I’m Virna, an enthusiastic youth worker and a proud nerd. Teaching is my passion and non formal education together with Erasmus+ are my magic stick to motivate young people from all around Europe. But Mathematics is my love. Books are my best friends. Did my European Solidarity Corps volunteering year in Austria. Fell in love with Wien and decided to stay… Let’s see how that works out… I am an altruistic soul, a wannabe poet and artist. Art is something that lasts, not something that should happen fast. In order to cherish that idea I started a project about Fast Fashion and its consequences on our lifes and out planet A. (the planet B is not a solution). The Slow Down Your Design Project is only the first step on my way to a greener world, that’s the reason I am starting my masters studies in Eco design this semester.
How olde am I? The relevance of our age or the presence in this Form in this era is questionable, but I know it says something, something statistical. Okay, I am a 28year-old Gemini, born in beautiful south Europe, in small, but fine Montenegro. My roots are bit mixed, Bosnian blood, Turkish and ofc blue drops are going through my body.
The only child in my life is me from time to time I forget that I am grown-up woman.“

What would you tell your 14 year old self?

„Keep moving forward. You are so amazing. Believe in you dreams and trust your mother. Hey, you will live one day in Vienna. And don’t color your hair when you turn 17th, don’t need it, you have a beautiful ash blond in the 2019 it’s a huge trend. 

Be brave and believe.“
