A deep breath and on ward towards more success is the only positive change I have my eyes on, and If I had to do it all over again, I gladly would."

Alright, now for the interview! Firstly Pretty, how would you best describe yourself?
Our readers would love to get to know you more Pretty. Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far.
My first name is Pratima (pra-theme-ah) I am South Asian and that in itself has been such an inspiring journey. Being born and raised in Los Angeles, and studying martial arts growing up, it was only a matter of time before I dove into all art forms that made me feel just as passionate. Currently, I am an actress, musician and model and the reason I thrive to continue creating on all types of platforms is that making my family proud at the end of the day and living out their dreams is an honour.

Keep interviewing me!
What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field Pretty?
My goal in life, love, work, family and just about everything is NEVER STOP. I see myself being able to do that by not showing off but simply showing up! I aim to tour the world wide with my music & message, host my own show. And eventually, run my business Pretty Bhamidi Entertainment far into the stars!
How do you communicate with people Pretty? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
I know one thing about myself, and it is that I am honest, If don't understand something I communicate, and if I want to show love outwardly I am not afraid. A patient person but I do not compromise, hard working and efficient. I've always been known for having a super friendly character, and I like it that way hehe.
If you had to do it over again, what would you change Pretty?
Changing the divine course of your story is always tricky, you're bound to run into road blocks and bumps but to turn back is never an option! A deep breath and on ward towards more success is the only positive change I have my eyes on, and If I had to do it all over again, I gladly would.
Who is your hero Pretty, and how have they helped you get to where you are?
My parents are Gods to me, they have given me the tools and tactics to get through this wild storm, however at the end of the day I can only be my own Hero, and so I look to myself to constantly practice, and grind. My biggest ways of helping me get to where I wanna be consist of me pushing myself. This means I must love myself and look back and forward as if this were my book and I am the author, no boring parts and full of adventure.
How important are creative education courses Pretty? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful?
To me there is no difference between education and the creative process, they go hand in hand. Wether you are a star athlete who is now starting a business or a dancer on tour, life's way of educating us is a force of nature, but if you take the lessons in, anything is possible. I have taken martial arts for 18 years, Spanish for 5, Acting for 2 and I will never stop academically educating myself. Knowledge is power. Learning is the gift.
Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry?
My biggest tip for the courageous spirits joining this competitive field is ALWAYS yourself! These means do not change who you are on set! Be the same as you when you are with your family, yes tone it down but never assume people expect you to be a certain way. You will be making the biggest mistake. Just stay focused, and the rest will manifest it self.
