What are your three favourite emojis?
What do you love most about connecting and inspiring your followers?
I love showing them new, creative ideas and celebrating all types of diversity. I love learning about them and their fashion needs!
What do you feel makes your life aspirational?
The confidence I have can be seen as aspirational for many, as it has taken many years for me to embrace my body and skin. My followers look to me for encouragement to build their own confidence.
Favourite swimsuit style?
Cheeky two piece!
What does being a #swimsuitmodel mean to you? Why did you decide to be part of this campaign?
It means embracing every aspect of myself. I decided to be a part of this campaign to be an example for other South Asian women, and all women in general, who feel held back by other’s opinions of themselves. I want to inspire women to embrace their bodies and never hold themselves back from expressing what they want and stepping out of their comfort zones.
What makes a body beautiful?
A confident smile.
What makes you happy in one word?
What makes you feel confident?
My willingness to learn makes me feel confident. If I’m willing to learn, I can explore and grow and become more confident in myself inside and out.
If you could say one thing to someone who needs a confidence boost, what would it be?
Just remember that no one is perfect and everyone feels insecure and unconfident. You’re not alone. Take it one day at a time and be kind to yourself. You are enough.
