Early life

Alesia was born and raised in the small village with approximately 20 kilometres, in the province of Riga, Latvia. She is of Latvian and Mongolian descent. Alesia has one older brother. As a young girl two of Riabenkova's favorite activities were playing the piano and painting. She pursued her musical interests at Latvian Academy of Music. After music school she enrolled at the Art Academy of Latvia (Latvian: Janis Rozentals Latvijas Mākslas akadēmija), Latvia's leading institution of higher education and scientific research in art. The Art Academy of Latvia is located in Riga, Latvia. After her artistic education Riabenkova enrolled and received a Bachelors degree in Computer Science at Riga Technical University.



While pursuing her education, Riabenkova had an opportunity to participate in a student exchange program in the United States. As part of this experience, she had a summer job at the Six Flags Amusement Park. As she assisted young children board rides, many parents told her, "you should be a model!". Riabenkova decided to see if there was a possibility of entering the modeling profession. She quickly signed a contract with the DNA Model Management, and was sent to Europe to appear in numerous fashion shows. As a 14 girl, Riabenkova experienced severe stress in her new environment. Constant pressure to maintain her weight and constant pressure from her family to return to Latvia weighed on her. She made a decision to take a break from the fashion industry and return home to complete her studies in Computer Science. Riabenkova returned to the fashion world in 2015. She is signing with the IMG Models . Alesia has worked for Victoria's Secret, Guess[1], Agent Provocateur ad campaign, Make Up For Ever among others.
