State / Region
I am more than just a model. I advocate for mental health. I like to help people, and I always have a soft spot to help others. I also used to be very insecure of my skin colour, but now I am embracing it through modelling
Reshmi, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Model?
Being infront of the camera always made me happy. So this was the one thing I did completely for myself that made me happy.
Who is your inspiration in life Reshmi? How do you stay inspired as a Model?
I follow and support other models and the beautiful work they do! I also keep a Pinterest board for inspiration on poses or ideas.
We all make mistakes Reshmi; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
I wish I researched some people I've worked with, so I wouldn't have to suffer the consequences. But it has taught me always to do my research.
Reshmi, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
I am always positive and kind. I am professional but always make sure we all have fun because life's too short not to enjoy it! I make everyone feel comfortable and always help a model out if she's new!
Please tell us Reshmi, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?
I love my Google Calendar! It helps me see what is coming up so I can plan my days accordingly to make sure I get homework done before any shoots. I always make sure I see my family and friends in the evenings, at least once a week.
Reshmi, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
At work, I am always making my clients see things from my point of view. What I do is use an example from their life to help them visualise it better. I also make sure I have a good relationship with them, so they listen better. Communication is key and using example; they can comprehend help.
Reshmi, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model.
You are getting published! There's no better feeling than your brother at a doctor's office and looking at magazines and randomly seeing your face!
Reshmi, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
For a school project, I did a shoot on mental illness and how it feels. It was exciting because people could relate to it and not feel alone, but it was challenging to describe how an internal illness feels visually
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Make lots of connections. Talk to photographers, brands, etc. and keep a good relationship with everyone. It will help later on especially. Also, do your research before working with anyone!
