Aija Bārzdiņa (born in Riga, Latvia) is a Latvian fashion model.

Personal life[edit]

Aija got her first approach to the Fashion world in Riga, Latvia in 1992 when she attended Zandas Kransmanes Model School.

In 1999, the Italian photographer Beppe Lopetrone took her for the first time to Milan, Italy where her modeling career in high fashion as regular size began.

Between 1999 and 2003, she had been living and working mostly both in Milan, Italy and Miami, Florida.

Her modeling career had a change in 2004 when she moved back to Italy and decided to join the plus-size model career. With a thoughtful plan of a good diet and with physical activity, Aija gained weight going from a size 8 to a size 12 (US).

She currently resides in Milan, Italy where she still works as professional plus-size model, she is attending a Chef School degree program and she enjoys riding her motorbike.
