On her biggest career high, overcoming her weaknesses and love for fashion
What inspired you to take up modelling professionally?
Iâ€™ve always had a keen interest in fashion and loved being in front of the camera, so Iâ€™d say it all started from there. Itâ€™s also a blessing that my friends and family have always encouraged me to pursue my passion.
What do you feel are your strengths and weaknesses as a model?
My strengths are my versatility, creativity, flexibility, focus and the ability to take initiative. Itâ€™s important to stand up, speak up, be bold and unafraid of judgments.
My weakness would probably be being too detail-oriented.
Biggest career high so far?
Iâ€™ve been featured in the song â€œO Kehndi Na Naâ€ by Navv Inder, who previously sang the popular â€œWakhra Swagâ€. This gave me recognition not only in Pakistan, but India as well.
Do you have a fitness and beauty regimen?
I do yoga and pilates religiously. I also like to eat healthy and stick to organic food products.
How would you describe your personal style?
Quirky and fabulous.
What do you think about the competition in your industry and the relationships models have with each other?
Iâ€™m not here to compete with anyone. The other models have their own style and I want them to shine too.
What do you consider to be the toughest aspect of your job and how do you overcome it?
The toughest job is perhaps having to shoot in the heat and the fact that you need to look glamorous at all times, regardless of how you feel. I keep reminding myself that Iâ€™m strong and I can do it; nothing can break me!
Where do you hope to see yourself in the next five years?
Come on, I canâ€™t even see far enough into the future to know whatâ€™s for dinner tonight!
