Tell us something about yourself as an individual?
Ever smiling, I’m full of life- vivacious, high spirited and a complete go-getter.
Tell us a little about how the idea of modeling came to you?
It happened to me and I went with it. While I was graduating, I took a step towards discovering myself and what started as a small college pageant, opened doors for me which I didn’t know were there. I took a leap of faith and here I am today. “Me” happened to me – to say it rightly.
How has the journey been by far?
The journey has been a bit surreal. Beautiful and liberating. It made me completely independent and more than a career option, it became a metamorphosis. I came out of nothing and transformed into who I was supposed to be.
Your morning, evening and weekend routine for the day?
I wake up, do my routine, have a hearty breakfast. Take a walk to the gym, workout. I take my work meetings around evening and off to bed in the night. Weekend I go out salsa dancing.

How is your usual day at work?
My usual day at work starts in the morning. We work for 12-15 hrs and by the end of it, I’m best kind of tired. I come home and fall into a slumber. There is nothing more I like- to come home after a long day of work and sleep with satisfaction.
What is next for you?
International is next for me. The world is waiting for me to happen and vice versa.
Fitness Mantra: I am a huge foodie, I love to eat. But, I make sure I do my part in keeping my body fit, small steps like taking the staircase or walking a lot. Luckily I have an amazing metabolism rate, so I don’t put on much of weight. I eat a lot of junk food as well, after every meal I have a glass of warm water with honey and lemon in it. I also carry a box of nuts with me when I am at work; it is my go-to thing!
What is your personal style like?
