“Neither Modeling nor DJing was my cup of tea initially.
I joined BBA at Madras Christian College and within a couple of months, I started working part-time along with many of my seniors. They were into hosting events and running shows.
I was very young to understand how people’s minds worked back then.
While being a sideline for many events, I got a calling from one of my seniors to host a show just because the original host didn’t turn up that day.
Typically people say NO to such big stages without proper prior experience. But I stepped in to give it a shot, and YES, I know I performed way better than the team thought.
I gifted myself the chance to hold the mic for the first time, and that day became one of my favourite days in my life’s history.
I follow my mantra – not to turn down any opportunities that come my way.
Over the years, It opened up many windows of opportunities wherein I hosted for some of the top brands in almost all the industries.
Having nobody to guide me, I was prepared for any circumstance.
One of my friends suggested I try modelling, and that’s why I took up the Modeling stream. However, I was so determined to do my homework before accepting any offers.
I happened to join a class where I was taught DJing by a senior DJ Wayne who was kind enough to guide me. After that, music became one of the most significant parts of my life.
During the lockdown in 2019, I started learning music production on my own, which helped me stay productive, despite the mental hit that I was facing.
There seems to be this fake imagination in most people’s minds on believing the social media posts to be their present life and mood.
Of course, people smile in the photos posted. However, nobody puts a picture with a sad face.
This impression kept following me when I took DJ as my profession.
It definitely pinches when colleagues diss my hard work and benefit it all to my looks. Ok
I don’t believe in being prettier. Instead, I am truthful to my efforts and genuinely craft the passion towards my job that I invest in every day.
Nevertheless, I was encountered by many hapless happenings, especially after my work hours, while travelling alone in public transport. There are still men who desperately stalk and stare for hours. Then, silently, I walk out of the jeers and catcalls.
I had no preplans to tie up all these to my journey, but I was keen enough to follow my routines and schedules throughout.
The plight was challenging, yet the experience was massive.
Having DJ, modelling & hosting shows as my profession, I’ve always stood firm to say NO when I’ve to!”
