“I got a chance to walk for a fashion show in 2016, that was my first show. At that time I was a college student, I was 18 and I was very new in the fashion industry. Before my first show, I never imagined that I will choose modeling as my profession. Since then, there has been no looking back!”

When asked about how she manages her daily schedule, Mohini told that she usually does not plan her day or schedule. Also, she feels in modeling is different from a job. Explaining it she says,
“I feel modeling is different from a 9 – 6 job, anything can pop-up in between casting, auditions, shoots, shows, going to meet a client. You have to plan things, accordingly. Every week is different”

As it is said that rejections are part of your life. Mohini also feels that being an actor and a model you need to learn to embrace rejections. And, prepare yourself accordingly.
“It is a part of every artist’s life. I still get rejected, it is no big deal because I know better opportunities are ahead of me. Many proven success stories inspires me. It gives me hope to keep trying and moving forward.”
Pandemic has made a lot of realizing the value of money. Mohini said that every model has realized the fact that several sources of income are very important. Also, she emphasized having a plan B in life and career.
“I believe pandemic has made every model realise that several sources of income are necessary. Anyone who aspires to be a model must understand that with modeling, plan B is also necessary”
Talking about social media, Mohini said it is an essential part of creating connections with the industry. Also, connections play a vital role in getting work.
“Social media allows a client or a modeling agency to see another layer of a model; their personality, candid shots, what they look like on a day-to-day basis. Social media helps models to get scouted. It helps modeling agency, photographers and clients to view a model’s profile.”
