Andreea Diaconu started modeling at 13, although there is information to suggest she was scouted at age 11. Diaconu is considered a star in the modeling world rising in the ranks as one of the best. An interview in Inoubliable stated that she has what is required to reach the Elite Level. The interview and story appeared on stands in 2013. She is considered one of Vogues editorial favorites, which is no surprise since she has appeared in many Vogue editions for several countries.
During the interview Andreea Diaconu stated she was raised in Bucharest and spent summer trips in Transylvania. She just wanted to make a little money so she took work modeling; however she felt it was interrupting school and other activities so she almost quit. Also as part of the interview Andreea stated anyone wanting to model should wait till they are 16 or older, after her experience as a young teenager rising in the ranks. She is not unhappy to have made the choice to model, but waiting until one is comfortable with their body and wiser when doing agency research is better according to Ms. Diaconu.
Besides being a model, Anna has taken some of her earnings and opened a restaurant in Bucharest. She has partnered with Diana Moldovan in the restaurant. It is called Moo Moo and opened in 2010.
She has also stated that she is interested in humanities, psychology and archaeology, and has taken online courses in those classes during her modeling career. She would like to go to a university rather than take online courses at some point. She also joked that she might take up a fitness instructor career as a backup plan.
