Mayuri Nandanwar pursued modeling fresh out of college. In conversation with the young girl.
''During college, I participated in the college fest where I walked the ramp and instantly fell in love with it! From that moment, I knew I could never settle for a regular 9-5 job. I knew I could do many sedentary things to earn money but earning money through what I really like doing was what i wanted to do!! What attracted me most to modeling was the opportunities to express myself. And I am grateful that my family has always been supportive.
I'm still trying to grasp to the realm of the profession; I have learnt to be comfortable in my skin. I'm no longer insecure the way I was as a teen. And that's the best part of being a model! Although I work hard to improve myself, I believe we should eat whatever we want and work out. Aside from modeling, I aspire to study further, related to fashion or travel. God has been kind. I am happy with the way my career is shaping up! I recently shot for a Goan swimwear designer on a beach in Mumbai. From walking on the sand to taking a swim in the sea to laying on stones and leaning against trees, it was so much fun!''
