Maria Turova is the first girl that I ever published on Zishy. Her face, her smile, they make even a jaded heart like mine's swoon. After her temporary visa expired, Maria left back to Russia years ago to finish her university studies. She told me she would return, but I was skeptical. People often get a taste of LA and then return to wherever and resume their previous lives wherever. Not Maria. Her modeling ambitions survived frigid winters in St. Petersburg, she returned, and is now earning her wings as an Angeleno. More Maria to come. "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence" is the song in the bonus video.
