“I grew up in a household where my parents allowed me to be me. My mom was a professional ballet dancer; she was a model, and my dad married them all,” Spiranac said. She also iterated that, because of this, she was never doubted for doing anything wrong.

Further talking about her parents’ support, Spiranac said, “My parents have always been very supportive of me.” They taught her “to never be ashamed of my body, to see the human body is beautiful.” Coming to the purpose and message she is trying to portray, Spiranac said, “That’s the message that I tried to share with everyone.”

The blonde model added that she was not “trying to push an agenda to young girls and say, like, take your clothes off. That’s how you make money. It’s really quite the opposite”. The community may now have a better idea and will stop running behind her every second they get.

The sole motivation and desire for Spiranac is to be her true self. While answering the question, she wanted to make it clear that “I do this because it’s, it feels right to me. And if you want to be sexy, and that’s the route you want to go, then go for it. If you don’t want to, then you can go for it.”

Spiranac wants everyone—both those who like her and those who don’t—to do what they want without putting themselves in a box or receiving labels from others. The gold diva’s single agenda and mission per se is to advocate being you. Because that’s what she is.
