Meera shared the Mantra for girls who look up to her. “Silence is violence. Models who decide not to speak up are participating in that same system of oppression that’s harming other people, and just because it doesn’t affect you directly, or you benefit from the privileges of it, doesn’t mean that you get a pass to remain silent on those issues.
On secret to success she said “It’s one thing when they ask you to change your body and you don’t feel good about your body. It’s when you are trapped and demotivated. Don’t get into it, rather feel good about your body and then if someone tells you that you shouldn’t, it’s a whole different story. (Laughs)
