编辑点评: 你一定听说过灰姑娘的故事吧,波兰有位姑娘堪称现实版灰姑娘。教育学硕士毕业的她从波兰来到英国,虽然简历出众但找工作却屡屡碰壁。终于她找到了一份保洁工作,然而她在被一位客户举荐到模特公司之后命运发生了重大逆转……

A model has gone from cleaner to the catwalk after an international agency took a shine to her looks.
有一位女清洁工的长相被国际模特公司看中了,于是她摇身一变成为一名美丽的模特。

Aleksandra Naranowicz, 27, struggled to find work after moving to England from Poland despite an impressive CV and a masters degree.
亚历山德拉今年27岁,虽然她硕士毕业、简历令人印象深刻,但当初她从波兰来到英国找工作却屡屡碰壁。

She made ends meet with a modest £250-a-week job as a cleaner - but her luck changed when one of her clients referred her to a London modelling agent.
终于她找到了一份清洁工作,凭着每星期250英镑的微薄收入勉强维持生活。但是在客户把她推荐到一家伦敦模特公司之后,她的命运彻底改变了。

They told Aleksandra she had the figure and looks of a model and the six-foot cleaner soon left her mop and behind.
他们告诉亚历山德拉,她拥有模特潜质的身材和长相。于是这位身高6英尺(约1.82米)的清洁工很快就丢掉拖把奔赴新的前程。

She has already starred in a string of adverts and catwalk shows and is earning up to £2,000 a shoot.
她已经成为一系列广告和走秀新星,出场费达2000英镑。

Aleksandra said: 'People said I had a pretty face and that I’d be good as a model. This gave me the confidence to meet modelling agencies in London.
亚历山德拉说:“人们说我拥有美丽的脸庞,所以我一定会是个好模特的。这些话给了我面试伦敦模特公司的信心。”

Aleksandra left Poland with a Masters degree in Pedagogy - the science and art of education - and moved to Bristol.
亚历山德拉在波兰拿到了教育学的硕士学位,研读教育科学和艺术的她毕业后来到了英国布里斯托尔市。

She took a job with local cleaning firm Mopp and one of her clients, a retired media mogul, told her ‘with bone structure like that you should be on a catwalk not cleaning my kitchen floor’.
她在当地保洁公司Mopp找到了一份保洁工作。她的一位客户是退休的媒体大亨,这位客户告诉她“你骨子里就是当模特的,而不应该在这儿给我擦厨房地板。”

She spent the next few months working as a cleaner to save the money to go to castings in London and was signed up by PRM, a leading model management company.
在接下来的几个月中,她努力做清洁工的工作以攒钱参加伦敦的模特选拔。接着她就与一家一流的模特管理公司签约了。

She now works as a full-time model and has done countless shoots, specialising in hair magazines and adverts.
她现在是全职模特,并且已经担任了无数场模特、尤擅长出任美发杂志和广告大片中的模特。

Mopp founder Pete Dowds said: 'We’re delighted to have been a part of helping Aleksandra with her career.
Mopp公司创始人皮特说道:“我们很高兴能在亚历山德拉的职场飞跃中助她一臂之力。”

'She was a brilliant addition to Mopp’s Bristol cleaning team so we’re sorry to lose her but no doubt she’ll "clean up" in the fashion world in no time.'
“她是Mopp公司在布里斯托尔市的杰出员工,很遗憾我们失去了这个人才。但是毫无疑问,她将很快在时尚界大放异彩。”
