Q: Tell us something about yourself.
A: I’m Divisha, 22 years old, from the very beautiful city of lakes.
I’m a software engineer by profession and I’m also pursuing modeling and pageantry. I feel it’s very essential for our mind and body to be calm.
So, I love to practice Yoga and meditation. I feel like once we set our heart onto something, hard work, discipline and the ‘never give up’ attitude will get us whatever we want.
Q: When did you decide that you will take up modeling
A: I decided to start modeling in 2018. When I went for the Miss Udaipur auditions, my friends’ motivation played a huge part. I got selected and won the title of Runners up. That’s how I started.
Q: Where do you see yourself in the coming years?
A: My future plan is to become a supermodel and also, a philanthropist. I see myself happy and contented.
Q: If not a model, what would you be?
A: A software engineer.
Q: your greatest inspiration?
A: My parents are my greatest source of inspiration. I follow the principles taught to me by them. In terms of work, I’m my own inspiration. I may not be the best but, I try to be better than my previous self.
Q: Is there anything you’d like to share with the readers?
A: Be nice to people. It may be unappreciated but, always spread love as we rise by lifting others.
