Aneesha has just won the Splash ‘Model of the Month’ competition, for the month of April. Splash, one of the best clothing retail stores, in the Middle East, initiated a monthly competition, titled ‘Model of the Month’ for all aspiring models. It is open to every nationality above 18 years of age, and residing within the GCC and Jordan.
We found out a little more about the competition, how she feels and her plans for the future:
Q: So, how did all this happen?
Aneesha: Well, a friend told me about this competition Splash was having every month. Once I was shortlisted by the authorities running the competition, I had to yield the maximum number of votes, to win being model of the month...which is what happened! I was really surprised and excited!
Q: What did you win?
Aneesha: I won a 500 Dirham voucher from Splash, which I’m extremely thrilled to use. I also got lots of goodie bags and invite to fashion shows and parties. Additionally, since I won this, I’m automatically entered into the Grand Finale where I will win a chance to walk the ramp at Splash's exclusive season launch fashion shows. I will also win opportunities to Professional portfolio photo shoots, video shoots and so on.
Q: Do you plan to pursue a career in modelling?
Aneesha: I’ve always wanted to get into modelling, ever since I was a kid! I feel so happy and blessed to have won this. Winning has encouraged me to follow my dream, and it has encouraged me to try out more. I want to make a career out of this, so I’m really looking forward to what happens next, from here.
Aneesha is actually the second student from the university to do so, after Yelanska Luis, a first year student from the Department of Biotechnology, who was the model for the month of January. We wish them both, the best for their endeavors
