UKRAINE’S KARATE CHAMPION AND MISS EUROPE 2014
Yulia Solopenko, 19 y.o. model from Dnipropetrovsk, received a crown of Miss Europe 2014 at Miss Eurasia competition held in June in Antalia.
- Just a year ago I was an ordinary student, studied in Finacial Academy and never thought about model career, Yulia says. – The model agent just found me on the street and proposed to try model career.
Yulia agreed and started to participate in castings and shootings. In one year she participated just in one beauty competition Miss Dnipropetrovsk. She didn’t win but it was good experience for her.
When the the agency informed her that she would take part in Miss Eurasia competition Yulia was very surprised as other girls had more experience.
- She complied to all competition requirements as Yulia is very smart girl and finished school with distinction. Before the competition start she managed to excellently pass all her end-of-the-term exams, Yulia Tkachenko, the head of the Galaxy model agency, comments. – Yuria is very persistent, hard-working, educated and I knew she will show her best.
Besides beauty and high intellect level Yulia is Ukraine’s karate champion.
- I have been going in for karate for 6 years and was a champion of Ukraine. But two years ago I had to quit as karate became high-injury sport for me. Now I keep fit with the help of fitness. Moreover, I try to follow healthy nutrition but not starving.
Now Yulia received a lot of new propositions on model career.

The girl from Donbass won Vice Miss title. Besides crowns and titles all girls received money bonuses, watches, jewelries, furs and trips.
