Model of the Fortnight

The inner beauty shines like a diamond

“Physical beauty is transient but the inner beauty is not only sustainable throughout one’s life but also radiates through character and attitude,” is the belief of Simran Madan, our Model of the Fortnight and she encourages others to subscribe to this thought.

A full-time Science student, she is known for her scholastic achievements, empowered by hard work, tenacity and dedication towards which she sets her mind.

Concern for the unfortunate

What sets Simran apart from many others is her sincere concern for the less fortunate members of the community and the extra efforts that she exercises in bringing them back to the mainstream of life and work.

“I love to work with special needs and disability children. I believe that everyone is unique in their own way; it is just a matter of embracing your inner beauty and shining like a diamond,” she said.

Energising Miss Talent

“Miss Indianz 2016 played an important role in my life. This event recognised my talent and awarded the ‘Miss Talent’ title. I hope to be recognised by many organisations and professionals in the fashion world,” Simran said.

She is a recipient of Dance Scholarships and has won the Junior Latin and Ballroom New Zealand Pro/Am Champion titles.

She came out in flying colours at the ‘Kiwi Classic’ International Competition held in Auckland in April this year.

In October last year, Simran had an opportunity of representing New Zealand at the World Championships held in Hawaii.

“I am a proud Kiwi-Indian and hope to represent New Zealand at world events and competitions,” she said.
