Q1. Why did you choose design as a career ?
I chose design as my career because since my childhood I was really fond of the outfits that people wear. I’m also interested in learning more about colours, it’s structure and functions. Later on I learned everyday observing seasonal changes in nature. I love to sketch more, learn to explore more to develop and visualise new designs. Since my childhood, I was so much inspired by Barbie dolls. Barbie is my role model. I used to design and do styling, photograph my dolls. I love the looks created by me and explore more ideas in developing a new design.
Q2. Where do you visualise yourself five years from now?

I’m still learning to grasp more ideas from the world. I am trying to visualise a greater development in designing and surely a new trend and a new cultural change.
