Alena Shishkova was born November 12, 1992 in the city of Tyumen. Before becoming a model and a runner up for Miss Russia, Alena was a student at TSU and a confident musician, playing the guitar.
Musical future was so close, but she was offered to shoot for a magazine and she agreed without hesitation. Over the years Alena developed as a model and started appearing on covers of fashion magazines. She also participated in all Russian competitions and won the title of "Miss Hope", "Miss Dream" and "Miss Sunshine". Alena went ahead and started working at fashion week shows in Moscow and abroad.
Miss Russia contacted Alena for two consecutive years, but Alena believed that she was not ready for such a serious competition. In 2012 Alena took part in the competition and was crowned runner up Miss Russia and is now represented by some of the most prestigious modelling agencies around the world and walking for Mercedes-Benz fashion week, while taking part in international campaigns.
