"America's Next Top Model" Cycle 7.
When it comes to fellow models; I have become fond of many. Alums Patricia, Megan, and Amanza are sweethearts and have been so welcoming. You would think being around 27 women from across the world and 12-17 hours a day would be disastrous, but we have great synergy. I'm so grateful to have been a part of this and I have made lifetime friendships.
Okay, I know you said one word, but I like both intuitive and unconventional.
My bucket list is always evolving because for the past 4 years I have been checking them off … one thing I cannot wait to do and a childhood dream is to swim with orcas.
Any movie with Tom Hanks.
Owning my own business. Walking a couple of red carpets. Maybe married with a kid? Who knows. I stopped planning my life after it never went the way I expected. I now go with the flow.
I cannot name ONE moment. My culture, the way my parents raised me and being in this industry from a young age defined who I am today, including my appreciation, compassion, and humility. BUT my attitude came from learning the hard way that not everyone has good intentions.
I own a macaw. He was rescued and he thinks I belong to him.
I speak Hindi, the official language of India. My second language is English. I have been told that I do have an accent but no one can pinpoint it. My Indian accent does come out occasionally when I am with the family.
My first job was actually working at my family's candy store after school and I started modeling at 15 years old.
