Tell us about yourself.
My name is Anisha Rana and I am 14 years old. I am currently in year 9 at high school. I live in Melbourne, Australia.
What is your biggest dream?
My biggest dream is to become a successful model and travel the world. I also love the thought of being able to impact young girls lives in a positive manner.
What does it mean to be your own kind of beautiful?
To be my own kind of beautiful means being myself and not having to worry about what others think about me. I don’t have to look and act different just because I’m afraid people will judge me. It is about being comfortable in your own skin.
Tell us about your modelling experience.
I have attended modelling workshops, I have been to multiple castings and I have had many photoshoots.
What is your dream brand to model for?
It would be a dream of mine to model for brands such as Adidas, Nike and Tommy Hilfiger.
How would you describe your fashion style?
My fashion style is a mixture of indie with a pinch of 70s casual vibe.
How important is self awareness and confidence to you in your everyday life?
To me this means knowing your self worth. Knowing how important and smart you are. Being confident to speak up and make your own decisions.
What makes you beautiful?
Being beautiful stems from the inside. It’s about being compassionate and having an open mind and heart. A quote I live by is “Sometimes the prettiest people do the ugliest things”.
What would you say to another girl your age who is struggling with their confidence?
I would tell them everybody is different. You do not need to look a certain way to be beautiful. Everybody is beautiful in their own way. Don’t be afraid people will judge you because you did something a little different compared to the others. It’s good to stand out. You are you!
