Ms. Namita Nayyar:
With exceptional hard work you are credited with all your achievements as a model. Do you believe that does the hand of Providence (Supreme Being) played a role in your success?
I believe that God has ordered my steps and opened the doors of opportunity for me. I am so thankful and amazed that I am able to model in my mid 30’s after having 7 children. I have never heard of a model mom with so many children before. I give thanks to God for giving me determination, perseverance, athletic genes and a good work ethic. I also thank God for giving me favor with those that have chosen to book and cast me. I will continue to model & act for as long as He has chosen for it to be a part of His plan for my life. When the time comes for me to move onto other things, I will accept that as well.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You have done bold photo shoots as a model. How you are so body confident and advice to your compatriots?
I have done many different kinds of photo shoots including; fashion, glamour, fitness & editorial. I have never done a nude photo shoot and am thankful to have followed my conscience in that regard. I used to wish I was taller and thinner for fashion modeling. But if I had been taller and thinner, then I probably would have wanted to be shorter and curvy.
Women and girls are easily discontent and can think about what we lack instead of focusing on our positives and strengths. It took me some time, especially after going through 7 pregnancies and remembering what I used to look like when pregnant, to accept myself as I am today. Be the best you that you can be. You are not the same as anyone else and God made you unique. As long as I am working hard and trying to make the best decisions the majority of the time then I am content with myself.
Women and girls need to give themselves a break and not be so hard on themselves. Keep in mind that most of the images we see in magazines have been created by a team of professionals including; a make up artist, hair stylist, wardrobe stylist, the best photography with an expensive camera, lenses, lighting and retouching/editing software. We are bombarded by images of perfection and it can become a depressing competition. Let your value be in who you are, not what you look like. Looks fade but character grows. For some of us, this is a battle in the mind, especially in the modeling industry.
