I have been supporting myself, I haven't taken a penny from my parents from the age of 18-19 and I have been supporting myself, I was modeling, making my own money. This was also very new territory for me, I was very clueless, I was very underconfident, I didn't know what I am doing, I didn't know how to go about it. But there is a certain vision one has for themselves, I had that vision and I stuck by my beliefs."

She also talked about her family and her situation, "So, I never really tried to short sell myself, that's one thing I was very certain about from day one. There has been a financial crunch and all, I am not very privileged where I come from an extremely affluent family. My family has gone through ups and downs as well, and I am proud that I have been able to make things work for myself, single-handedly."
