- In an interview, while talking about making her career in acting. She said,
I was pursuing my degree as a physician assistant but continued to maintain my dream to be an actress one day. I quickly realized the best things in life are often waiting for you at the exit ramp of your comfort zone and I started to do things that pushed me out of this zone to become a better individual. I was honoured to be selected as Miss South Asia USA in 2014. The confidence this title instilled within me really helped drive additional opportunities. I’ve never been a fan of normal modeling or cameo opportunities that my titular win brought with it. All I can say is that life is always about waiting for the right moment to act and I found mine soon.”
