NITHYA RAJA GOPAL, 31

Female (Malaysia) - - COVER MODEL SEARCH -

We take our hats off to Nithya for her hon­esty! Be­tween money and love, her pick is the first sim­ply be­cause she ac­knowl­edges that money is what will help her pro­vide food, shel­ter and com­fort for her loved ones. Orig­i­nally from Men­takab, Pa­hang, the in­trepid fem­i­nist be­lieves that her per­son­al­ity is quite sim­i­lar to an ea­gle’s. “Ea­gles are ma­jes­tic, tena­cious and have a vi­sion of their own, and they stand out from all other birds. They do not see the sky as their limit and will go all out to get to their des­ti­na­tion. That’s ex­actly how I en­vi­sion my­self to be one day,” she says. If Nithya be­comes fa­mous, she hopes to be able to strive for gen­der equal­ity in Malaysia where men and women will be treated the same in all as­pects.
