Since childhood, Farhan Alam has dreamt of being a model, so after high school, he thought to himself: why not try pursuing the dream I have been yearning for? Today he is finalist at Glam Icon.
"I was focussed right from a young age that I wanted to keep moving forward steadily and work hard till I am a professional model. I am confidently moving towards my goal because I feel I have it in me to be a good model — I do have the personality and am improving myself with each passing day and also learning from supermodels when I have the opportunity.
Though I struggled in the beginning, I've recently done a campaign for Park Avenue and a web-series. And that gives me even more motivation to work hard — I am strict about diet and workout; I workout five times a week and I don't cheat on diet because I hate losing and that thought keeps me dedicated to it. Coming back to my diet, I stay away from oily and junk food because dieting is not about starving — it is about eating clean.
Right now, I'm focused on the pageant Glam Icon. It can be my big break if I win. It is a good platform for models to be in the limelight and get noticed by the industry. My experience so far has been different from what I do and it feels really great to be a finalist. It is a lot more than what I expected. The fact that I am one the finalists makes me feel good and makes me want to work even harder with renewed determination! May the best one win!"
