IM: What is that one thing you wish to protect?
Richa: Disappearing languages! I think language holds the key to our history & it is important to keep them relevant. Personally, I make sure to speak in my native language- ‘’ Maithili’’ whenever it is needed. Speaking in the Maithili language makes me feel refreshed & it creates a visceral sense of homey feeling.
IM: Are you modeling full-time or are you balancing it with any other side gig?
Richa: At the moment, I am trying to balance modeling and content writing and enjoying the best of both worlds. I strongly believe having a side hustle is great, it allows me to pursue a passion that I don't get to explore much and allows me to network with people in a new career field.

IM: Share a piece of advice for aspiring models
Richa:  Don’t compromise your limits! No one can push you into things that you don’t want to do. As a model, I have my limits. If I don’t want to do bold shoots, I make it clear to tell them No! And a reasonable photographer is always fine with it.

IM: Is there anything that you do to kind of psych yourself up before a photoshoot?
Richa: I start by prioritizing positive thoughts! Also, I make sure to exercise in the form of Roller skating, it's easy on my body and a fun way to workout. If you're trying to psych yourself up before a photoshoot, go out to skate, it will help you feel pumped up.

IM: Today social media is a game-changer. Do you think it is helping you in your modeling career?
Yes, definitely! Social media is a very powerful tool that lets me connect & network with creative artists, it is helping me build my personal brand. I simply cannot underestimate the power of social media networks in elevating modeling career.

IM: How you handle negative comments on social media?
Richa: As a model, you are often under scrutiny and in a world of digital anyone can say anything. So, I keep in mind to let things go, make sure to respond calmly by defusing stress.

IM: What’s invisible in the modeling industry but you wish people could see?
Richa:  The effort that goes behind every carefully cultivated look. Often lots of retouching, props, lighting equipment, and a whole glam team is involved to get that perfect looking shot. It takes time, planning, money, team to actually bring that impeccable look.

IM: What ridiculous stereotypes you get to hear as a model?

Richa: So many that need to go away, I am always surprised at how others react when I tell them that I've never smoked and tasted alcohol. People need to understand that modeling is a career choice, just like any other career, managing looking flawless despite having hectic weekends, casting calls is not an easy task.
IM: Is make-up a chore or delight?
Richa: For me, it' a bit of both. It is a chore for me when I feel lazy and delight for me when I feel artistic.

IM: Do you have any exciting projects lined up that you can tell us about?
Richa: You will know if anything rousing happens.
IM: Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are?
Richa: My family, close friends, and my tenacity are my rocks. I feel deeply grateful for everything they do for me.
