Ora is 20-years-old and stands 185 cm tall. She is a student of tourism management at Rochester Institute of Technology hailing from Dubrovnik and speaks Croatian, English, and Russian fluently. The diva is very skilled at make-up and has worked as a private make-up artist and hairstylist. Ora aspires to be a songwriter and a novelist and is extremely passionate about it.
