When did you start modeling?

I started modelling in 2017.

Which Designers/Shows have you walked for?

I’ve walked for fashion designers like Swapnil Shinde, Archana Kocchar, Nivedita Saboo, Amy Billmoria, Nidhi Munim, Karleo, Kristy De Cunha, Salim Asgarally and Felix Bendish . I have also walked for many fashion institute shows.

What are you doing besides modelling?

Besides modeling, I am working on my fashion label.

Have you won any contest? If yes, give details regarding the same.

I started my career winning 'Niche Supermodel 2017'. Over the years later, I participated and won 'Miss Glam Icon 2019' and was also the semi finalist for the Bombay Times Fresh Face 2017-18 contest.

How has your journey been as a model so far?

As a model, my journey has been very exciting. Every new project has something new to teach. I always look forward to meeting new and talented people who are amazing at what they do. At times, there are some tricky situations but I think it’s necessary to remember who you are and how to stick to your roots.


Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

5 years from now, I want to see myself as a successful model/actor who owns her own fashion brand and I want to be content with everything that I will do.

You have been part of Niche academy, how has that journey been?

I became a part of Niche academy in 2016. It was an amazing experience to be groomed by Nisha ma'am where learning was fun but strictly professional. Niche grooming academy believes in tough love and while it gives us wings to fly, it also gives us that much needed push. I had the opportunity of walking for my first show in 2017 and I’ll be forever grateful to Niche Academy as they give you well grounded skills that actually help you to navigate in the maddening world of fashion industry. I think it has been a great journey ever since and I’m looking forward to so much more that’s coming my way.
