The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity, but the optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty. I Himani Bhanushali am the most optimist by nature.
My journey was no fairy tale but destiny had its plan in place. Well I come from a traditional Gujarati family where my dad really didn’t appreciate me having a career in modelling but at the same time it was my mom’s dream. I was a rebel right from my teenage. At a very adolescent age I had discovered my passion for fashion and realised I will do well as a fashion model. Well after a lot of convincing my dad finally agreed or rather say he gave me consent to pursue my dream career. Today I’m a qualified interior designer and a fashion model where I absolutely enjoy my regular work shoots. It is a dream come true.
Thats when I decided to participate in a pageant show. I had my dental alignment treatment simultaneously but still I gave my auditions.
My courage and never give up attitude didn’t let me stop & then IBB happened. Im a proud winner of Ms IBB 2021 and a sashed winner of Ms Vivacious. During this journey there was a turning point in my life where I could see my dad was proud of me and startled to see how dedicated, determined and hardworking I am throughout. Till today I remember when they were just about to announce the winner I heard Reena and one of my closest friend Praatik were continuously yelling on top of their voice in excitement my participant no, now its my lucky no not just once. They were right. I smiled, I cried when my no 7 was announced. Mixed emotions I faced for the first time in my life. This moment will always remain close to my heart as my dream, my passion and my moms dream had come true. Happiness multiplied a thousand times. My brother Rohit (holds a special place in my heart that cannot be replaced) continuous support had helped me achieve what I am today. I would also like to thank my friends Trisha and Deepika too. I could see the smile on AJ’s face. I will make her proud and this is just a start of my career many things to come.
Thank you IBB for training me with the best in this industry and I must say all this will help me in my career as I aspire to become India’s best model and represent my country internationally.
One lesson from life is that with hardwork, passion & determination nothing in this world is impossible you can achieve anything and everything with this.
Message to everybody is no matter at what stage you are in your life, have courage, believe in your self, chase your dream take that first step and everything will fall in place the universe will surprise you with what you wanted for so long.
YOUR OWN DESTINY”.
