Our crew was more than excited when they had the opportunity to photograph Polish model Monika Majgier-Sztabnik while on our 2016 Carib Tour at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino this past November. Monika was competing in the Swimsuit USA International Model Search finals. BikiniTeam photographer Greg Hunter was on hand to create these amazing images of Monika and her natural beauty. The beach was the perfect setting for a later afternoon photo shoot with this Polish sensation. Besides shooting these Monika Majgier model photographs, we were also able to shoot her with fellow contestant and UK beauty queen Kendal O’Reilly.
Monika was born in Wroclaw, Poland where she finished economics and administration school there and then moved to Northampton, England at the age of 18. She started working full time as a Supply Planner for a well known cosmetics and fashion company but was also doing some modeling and promotional work part time. One of her biggest interests was air rifle shooting when she was a teenager. She competed regularly and came 2nd in Poland for her age group! We had to ask how she stays so fit and we couldn’t help but grin when she replied “I’m really into pole fitness which I’ve done for 8 years now”. She told us she also loves watching makeup tutorials so much that she even started her own YouTube channel.
Monika entered Miss Swimsuit UK competition in September and got the title which enabled me to go to Punta Cana and compete in Swimsuit USA International finals which she exclaims was the best experience of her life especially because she was voted into the top 25 finalists!
We had the opportunity to ask Majgier-Sztabnik what she felt was important to her in her success. She graciously replied “Always treat others the way you want to be treated”. We couldn’t agree more. She also shared with us “Follow your dreams and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls”.
Each month we will publish a special feature that we call the Model of the Month. The women we select for this prestigious honor will all exhibit the same qualities which include having both inner/outer beauty, be social media savvy and an established model or aspiring actress.
