Tell us about yourself.

I’m Pritha, I’m 16 years old, and I’m from Dallas, Texas.

What is your biggest dream?

My biggest dream is to become a successful actress and a model, travelling the world to see what this world has to offer and what I can do for it.

What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?

To be your own kind of beautiful is to do what you love and take care of yourself without worrying about anything else. It’s to get yourself involved in many different things and to stick with the things that define you the most. Lastly, it’s to make the most of the life you’ve been given.

Tell us about your modeling experience.

I love being behind the camera and taking pictures. It’s fun to see the outcome later on and see the simple art come to life.

What is your dream brand to model for?

Someday I would absolutely love to model for Tommy Hilfiger and Balmain. Tommy Hilfiger is such a cool and relatable brand while Balmain is just so interesting and beautiful.

How would you describe your fashion style?

My fashion style usually depends on my mood and I don’t have a particular style. I like to try everything. One day I’d be wearing a cute skirt with a nice jacket to match it, while the next I might be wearing just some shorts and a long t-shirt.

How important is self-awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?

Self-awareness and confidence are really important. I have many insecurities, so I try to keep myself busy and surround myself with good friends who help me look overcome these worries. I find that I am most confident when I’m happy!

What makes you beautiful?

I believe what makes me beautiful is my work ethic and my hunger to always want to learn and do more.

What would you say to another girl your age who is struggling with their confidence?

To another girl who is struggling with confidence, I’d like to tell her that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. Everyone leads their life in their own perspective and has their own opinion of beauty. As long as you believe that you are enough, and center yourself with people who help you see that, life will become beautiful.
