Anisha Sharma is a law graduate from G.H Raisoni Law School, Maharashtra. She has made a name in the fashion industry and has worked with designers like Padm Shri Wendell Rodricks. In this interview, she talks about her interest and career in fashion.
Please tell us about your school life? Who were your influences and what interested you?
I was always into sports during school days and have won multiple medals at State level in roll ball and skating. Writing poems and reading biographies were some of my hobbies.
Please tell us about your college life? What interested you and who were your influences?
I was meritorious throughout law school. Won the best speaker at Bombay High Court, Nagpur Bench twice along with many others. Mr Fali Nariman and Justice DY Chandrachud have been a major inspiration throughout.
Since when have you been modelling? How did this interest come up?
It’s been 4 years. My first show was with Padma Shri Wendell Rodricks.
Fashion was always something close to my heart and I pursued it one step at a time since I didn’t have any background or exposure whatsoever.
I trained for pageants because representing India international was not just a dream but something I believed I could do well.
How’s modelling as a career? How much does one earn or what are the avenues?
Modelling to me is a way of expressing my personality. It’s a full-time profession so the more you practise the better it gets. Initially earning is not easy but gradually it can help you earn well.
What would your advice be to people wanting to start a career in this field?
Have the courage to follow your dreams but having said that I believe that education is of utmost importance.
I endorse that before stepping into any profession which has a shelf life, one must get through a graduation degree.
Many senior people would still not be comfortable with modelling as a career. What do you want to tell them?
I think that its time dogmatic ideologies fade away.
Modelling as a career offers you an opportunity to know yourself better, enhance your skills and gives you exposure to a whole new world.
Tell us about the current competition you are participating in?
I’m a finalist at Liva Miss Diva 2020 Miss Universe India. The finale is scheduled on 22nd February 2020 at Bombay.
The winner goes on to represent INDIA at the Miss Universe pageant to bring back the coveted titled home after 20 long years, since the last time we got the crown home was in 2000 when Lara Dutta bagged it.
