She is not like other models, who restrict themselves not to eat this or that. She instead listens to her body and eats meat, if she is craving for it, or ice-cream, or any other item.
She is obsessed with Yogi’s Calming tea and always carries it during the fashion shows. It relaxes her, and calms her down and gives the confidence to walk on the shows. People, however, sometimes, think that she carries drugs.
