Upbringing and Music
Mila is a professional singer-songwriter, and model. She is of Russian-Italian heritage and was born in the city of the 'Pro-Football Hall of Fame', Canton, Ohio, but now calls Aurora, Ohio her home. She grew up surrounded by music and was raised in a family full of musicians, singers, and photographer parents. She was just six years old when she realized she wanted to work within entertainment. She had a passion for singing, a love for fashion, loved to dance and play guitar, and could already envision herself on a stage and in magazines.

What is so interesting about Mila is that she was born with profound deafness; completely deaf in her left ear. Sadly nothing medically could be done, and she still faces daily challenges because of it. Despite her deafness, Mila studied music all through school. She learned how to play a handful of instruments, and sang in a handful of choirs. She has been vocally trained in pop music by a variety of coaches, and started song writing at age twelve.
In 2015 she released her first single "Die", of which she was the singer-songwriter for. It's been featured on the top publishing networks worldwide including iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon MP3 to name a few, where it can be purchased. Mila is also currently working on her first full album, which will be released sometime in the near future.
Some say music and fashion go hand and hand. In 2012 Mila started modeling professionally when she moved to Los Angeles, California after high school graduation. She's been signed to seven modeling agencies nationally, and has also modeled internationally.
She has walked many runway shows at Fashion Week and Style Fashion week for different seasons, some of which she had the honor of opening and closing for. Many other designers outside of those events have featured her in their shows as well.
In 2014 she was an Ohio finalist in 'Tropic Beauty pageant', and in 2016 she landed her first campaign for a sunglasses company and was featured on banners throughout Los Angeles. She's been published both online and in print, worked alongside other celebrities, has worked behind scenes as a model recruiter for modeling agencies, and has done a number of social media campaigns as well after gaining the likes of people all over the world.
