                                 plans to be an actress. I
                             had finished school and

                             tough. I would bully the

between studies I dreamt of being a model. Acting was
not on the radar. I always visualised myself being a
                     model though. I loved to see fash-

                         was my secret desire to be
                           like them. I started model-
