Gods Magazine: You have beautiful skin and hair, do you have a routine for it?

India: I condition my hair with Argan/ Morrocan oil products. I don’t shampoo very often, as for it dries out curly hair. But conditioning everyday is key! As for my skin, I use a glycerin based facial cleanser and Embryolisse moisturizer. On my body I use coconut oil, which is also great for many other uses!

G:Since you live (& work) between NY and LA, what are your favorite spots to hang out there?

I:My favorite spots in NY and LA tend to vary on a phase or mood I’m in. At this point, I tend to go to more of a speak easy or bar type venue in both places. Let’s just say…I’d rather see a band play or something along those lines…

G:What is your motto?

I:My motto isn’t necessarily a motto. I’m constantly changing as a person and I just want to continue to learn. In that case, if I had to have one, it’d be “Never stop being willing to learn.”

G:What is the most attractive thing about a man to you?

I:The most attractive thing to me in a man is personality and openness. I love a man who is intelligent, open minded and funny. Also one who can handle my sarcasm .

G:What is a superwoman to you?

I:A superwoman to me is a woman who is willing to be aware of her insecurities and flaws and wants to learn to move past, a woman who is constantly working on letting go of all negativities.

G: Do you have a favorite instagram page that you like to go to everyday?

I: I don’t have a specific Instagram page that I go to everyday, there are just so many.

G: What music, band or artist are you currently listening to?

I:My music playlist is always all over the place. But to name off a few artists that I’m listening to at the moment- Hozier, James Blake, Glass Animals, tUnE-yArDs, Alt-J, I could go on forever…

G: I know that you are also a musician. Where can we see you perform?

I:As far as my music- at the moment, I’m just working on my craft, so I’m not performing anywhere. Planning on eventually putting a band together, which is hard because EVERYONE is in a band haha…But things fall into place when it’s time.

G:Is there one side of your personality that you dont show on instagram, but that you could tell us about?

I:I feel that I pretty much show my personality on Instagram…I don’t really hide the fact that I smoke or drink, I post sarcastic memes, etc. I don’t really care what people think of me, I’m going to do what I want regardless, so what’s the point in hiding what I enjoy or find amusing? Instagram isn’t that serious in my opinion.

G: What’s the biggest lessons that you have learned from modelling?

I:The biggest lessons that I’ve learned from modeling would have to be that you have to have a tough skin. It’s a very cut-throat industry and you won’t survive if you let criticism get to you. I always say that you could go outside and get hit by a car and then your “career” is over. I don’t think that it’s necessarily a basket that you should put all of your eggs into…looks are fleeting. With that being said, having a personality is something that is key as a model as well. No one wants to work with a boring model. Also, having personality is something that could lead to other endeavors.

G: Do you think that having a good following on instagram is important for a model?

I:I think that people that feel they need a following is good for them, I am not necessarily one of those people.
