Modeling was Binoodha Sasi's forte since childhood, and she was more than lucky to have her parents who stood with her to realize her dreams.
Binoodha worked so hard that she became one among the top five finalists of Miss Kerala 2012. And back from then, when she started small shoots for various brands in Oman, to being trained under India's first official pageant coach, Ritika Ramtri, this model from Thrissur has only seen success.
Modeling is something Binoodha loves doing. Shoots for makeup artists and designers keep her engaged. However, she is very careful with the projects she choose.

The style mantra for the model in her is very simple. Binoodha says, “If you are comfortable in what you wear, you are inevitably confident. And that confidence radiates from you and your personality. I experiment with style constantly.”

She also uses Instagram as a medium to practice fashion blogging and experiment different styles that come across her everyday.
Speaking about the challenges she faced, she admits that initially it was awkward to tell people that she wanted to be a model. Most of the people still perceive it as a 'non-brainer' profession. But down the lane she has realized that modelling is as difficult as any other profession and requires as much effort.
Walking the ramp is what she loves the most. She always remembers what her trainer has taught her. She points out that when you walk, you must hold your chin up and look forward. “Your job as a model is to represent the brand and be able to adapt to every brand you represent.”
On hopes of entering the film world, she says though she had a close brush with the industry, the plans for a movie didn’t work out, leaving her dream where it was. She would definitely be interested if any good projects come her way.
To the aspiring models out there, Binoodha says: “It’s a very humble profession. There are always going to be prettier girls out there or someone who is more talented than you; It’s a growing pool. I personally believe in having a safety net and that’s why I got a degree in design. But if you want to be a model you should first love yourself and remember everyone has a different definition of beauty, and that shouldn’t affect you”.
