Who inspires Divita Rai and what did she say about herself?
Divita Rai stated in an interview with Time Now that she considers her disposition to be adaptable because she had to change six schools, travel, and reside in several locations throughout her youth. “Embrace life, not fear change, and live each moment to the fullest,” is her life’s motto. Since her father exploited the potential of his education to overcome his financial situation and give his family the greatest life possible, she sees him as an example for ensuring that education is available to all.
Rai is ultimately motivated by Sushmita Sen, Miss Universe 1994, “because of her strength, faith in her skills, and kindness that she emits.” In addition, if given the chance to think like Frida Kahlo did,she wishes to be born as an artist.
