My experience with Asia’s Next Top Model was definitely one for the books! I would not trade it for anything in the world and when you watch the show you will know why.

I was given the opportunity to learn what I have always wanted to do from the best within the industry internationally. I couldn’t be anymore thankful to Star World Asia for choosing me to participate in this extraordinary season of Asia’s Next Top Model. I learned a lot about myself as a person,and the lengths and limits I could endure in all kinds of situations that dealt not only with modeling, but also adventure, fear, passion and so much more.

Yoga and meditation got me through a lot of moments where my patience was really tested, especially since I lived in a penthouse with 15 other girls! I went through many feelings and emotions of high degrees, some I had never felt before. If it were not for my couple years of almost daily yoga practice, I would have completely lost my mind! During the show, we were put through a lot of suspense, and were given surprise after surprise. Yoga helped me keep my center through it all.
