2. On Health

While I believe that when you are in the glamour industry, you have to look your best, I also believe being skinny is not ‘hot and happening’.

3. On Choices

My choices are like my fingerprints, they make me unique.

5. On Following Your Heart

It’s good to be slightly ambitious, but I believe one shouldn’t be too calculative. It’s good to be on the edge, but I have never followed my mind. I have always followed my heart. And it has yielded the right results.

8. On Contentment

I’ve been through the grind where I’ve come home and there’s no dinner. I’ve forgotten to order it and I’ve slept on an empty stomach. I can proudly say that I own my home today and I’ve worked bloody hard for it.

9. On Choosing The Right Person In Life

It’s not about the bags he buys me, or the rocks, or the dinners, or the holidays he can take me on. I’m a self-made girl. I know I’ve achieved a lot already and I don’t need a man for those things. I can buy myself the most expensive bag or the biggest rock I want.

For me, it has to be about being my best friend, spending quality time with me, being able to have amazing conversations together even while we are sitting in a house or a car.

10. On Objectification Of Women

YES! I am a Woman. I have breasts and a cleavage! Did you get a problem?
