Arya From India: Winner Of The Girls' People Choice Award

At the World Final of Elite Model Look 2017, there were the Top 15, as decided by the jury. Alongside this, the audience were invited to vote for their favourite Finalist to win the People's Choice Award. Arya from India was the most popular of the girls. We catch up with her to find out what it was like to win.

You won the People’s Choice Award! How did it feel when you found out?

I was very happy and astonished to win! I would I like to say a huge thanks to everybody who voted and trusted my ability.  And thank you for boosting my confidence for the entire journey in this field!

Were you nervous or excited before the show?

Obviously I was nervous to present myself in front of a huge stage for Elite Model Look. But before going on the catwalk, I was very excited that whole world was about to watch me. It was like dream come true for me to be one of the participants among the 34 countries. It was such overwhelming moments which cannot be expressed in words.

Elite Model Look is also about the friends you make – who did you make friends with?

I have got amazing new friends from all over the world. I had fun getting to know everyone but strongest bond I had with Nathalie from Switzerland, Henrike from Germany and Kim from Thailand. But I miss everybody!

What was it like to experience the Bootcamp?

The Bootcamp was one of the best experiences of my life. I have learned so many things about this field. And the fun we had with all of the other Finalists from all over the world. And I had an opportunity to work with distinguished people from this field. Elite Model look is such big platform, and I have never imagined that I am one of the girls from my country who will get chance to represent India. It was a real honour for me. 

What did you do when you got home?

On my arrival back home I went on short vacation with my family. It was a relaxing time for me to spent some quality time with my parents and my brother.
