I belong to middle class family from Varanasi and like any other Indian family becoming Doctor, Engineer , Banker is the ultimate goal for any child (in the eye of his/her parents). Jobs like a beautician , hair stylist , make up artist , fashion designer, model , dress artist etc has no relevance.
These fields are for kids who don’t want to study and can’t become doctor , engineer etc. I too lived a dream of becoming a Doctor, but destiny decided otherwise and I got selected in IDBI bank and became a banker.
I was a studios child and spent my entire school days and college days with books, notes and lectures. I was in an impression that once I become successful, I would go out and live my dreams. But since I joined IDBI bank, it was more of a boredom and routine life. I realized that I may never get to live my dreams if I just continue this way.
But God was always with me and by God grace I got selected for a modelling contest . But when I’ve done my first shoot and i uploaded my pics on facebook , then my family/relatives who knew me from my childhood thought I am going in a wrong direction and i too started to feel that they might be right.
However, I met some awesome people at Celebrity face and with my husband always there on my shoots. I feel protected and find a constant source of support. This also helped me to build a lot of confidence and remove fear of group.
But whenever I go to shoot my husband is always there and I feel protected .This is positive point for me because my husband support me in this field. Because he thinks my wife has lack of confidence , it will helpful in building her confidence and remove the fear of the group.
So do I see benefits of choosing Modelling as a part time career. Yes I do.
- It improves self grooming.
- It improves body language , we don’t need to go for any personality development trainings .
- It encourages me to keep my body fit with diet and workout. That’s a big motivation.
I am looking at modelling not as a full time career, but just as a hobby. I am sure that once i achieve some success, my family would be proud of me.
I don’t think any job is good or bad, it’s you who decides your action in any profession.
Now I am continuing my bank job with happiness , and I am enjoying modelling as a hobby. Travelling is my another dream which I hope to realize someday. I am sure Universe would help me to give me opportunity to travel around the world.
So take care , enjoy your life , Love yourself and grow…
