Ninja Singh, who was crowned as the winner of the Ford Models Supermodel of the World - India contest a few weeks ago says that she was always meant to be a model.
"This contest was the dream start that only comes once in a lifetime," says the 20-year-old. Singh scored over 19 other girls participating in the contest to strut off with the title, which was once held by the likes of actor Bipasha Basu and supermodel, Vidisha Pavate.
"When I auditioned the first time, I knew of the prestigious lineage that came with the title, and that was perhaps one of my biggest motivation," says Singh. Organised by Fever Entertainment in partnership with the Hindustan Times, the contest saw finalists from all over India compete for the title that gives the opportunity to the winner to compete in New York for the title of Ford Models Supermodel of the World in November.
Singh is already preparing herself for the international contest. "I’ll be pitted against some of the best models from all over the world, so to say I’m not a little nervous would be a lie. But the training I received during the contest and the guidance of the industry experts is just the right boost to my confidence," she says. Every beauty queen and supermodel has an aim that they want to achieve after they win their coveted title. As far as Singh is concerned, she reveals that her is aim will be achieved by just winning the title.
"Winning the contest in New York is my ultimate ambition, so I think I’d have achieved what I started out to do," she says oozing confidence. Tune in to see her journey to victory tonight on Imagine TV at 6.00 pm. Model trivia
