Maria Laura Casta
was born May 11, 1978 in Pont-Odemara, France.
The name "Lititsiya
" in Latin means "joy". In childhood Lititsiya
loved to draw and write stories. Dreamed of being a flight attendant, teacher, vet, singer, actress. "In the age of 12 I started to grow breasts, and I had to wear a bra. None of my friends are not wearing it, and I began to tease terribly in school. Classmates sat behind me, putting off my bra strap and laughing, "- she recalled.
She grew up on the Corsican values - and today the main features Lititsii remain faithful to family, friends, independence and rebellious spirit. "If you know of Corsica, then you know me - she says. - I was a dreamer, diffuse, and abstract. Teachers say that I am not so clever as my brother. Even then I was a little stubborn, and insecure, and after these words even more locked into their world of fantasy ".
The birth of her sister Marie-Ange Lititsiyu forced out of his microcosm. "I felt responsible. The idea that I can be a role model for her, was a revelation for me. I forced myself to grow up ". Due to the fact that Lititsiya
beginning to develop physically before the same age, she has emerged complexes about their appearance. "I felt awkward and embarrassed about my body. The boys did not pay attention to me. I remember how I watched them from far away, embarrassed to say anything. I did not think I can be of interest to them. "
Everything changed when Lititsii was 15 years old. Suddenly, she found that was wrong with regard to their appearance. This happened when she was awarded the title of "Miss Lumio" (Lumio - small Corsican village where her father was born). A few days later, it was noticed on the beach photographer and agent of a famous Parisian modeling agency Madison Models. Struck a natural grace and beauty Lititsii, they asked her father, who was also at the beach, permission to make a few test photos.

came to the agency for a test shoot.
. Says Peter Vincent (Vincent Peter), founder of the agency Madison: "Lititsiya
arrived in blue jeans, a T-shirt and completely without makeup
. Few seconds was enough for me to appreciate that it was something rare and special. Lititsii was not yet fifteen. She is very shy and nervous, but only because it was on the "unfamiliar territory" - she knew nothing about the modeling business and the world of fashion ".
Vincent Peter immediately took to Lititsiyu Odile Sarron (Odile Sarron), a casting director zhuranala French Elle. "Odile - female employment and its very difficult to find on the phone and nearly impossible to agree with her about the meeting. But I was sure that Lititsiya
she liked, and dare to come without warning. There Odile was exactly the same reaction as me when she saw Lititsiyu. So it all started. "
A few weeks later Lititsiya
appeared in the magazine Glamour, and from that moment began its meteoric rise. Lititsiya
