‘Beauty from Bengal’ is a phrase I had been hearing ever since I was a child, but I am inclined to say that the lens of a camera is not as just as one would expect it to be.
With big eyes, and long dark hair, Moni Ferdoush, is really a head-turning beauty.
Arriving to Canada10 years ago, Moni tells Generation Next that she has spent her childhood in Philippines and Japan. Having spent most of her life in Japan she fluently speaks Japanese, but Bengali runs in her blood. She says, “Even though I have not spent a lot of my time in Bangladesh, but I still appreciate my language and culture and everywhere I go, I am still a Bangladeshi.”
Moni is a Neuroscience and Studio Art student at University of Toronto. Not only her choice of subjects is very diverse but her vision on modeling is unique as well. She says, “I have been curious about Fashion ever since I can remember.”
Moni thinks that modeling is not only about standing in front of a camera and being photographed but it’s all about creativity. She thinks that using your body language to convey a message is one of the most challenging things. She believes in this silent language that a ‘picture is worth a thousand words.
She says, “Modeling is not about simply looking pretty and wearing revealing clothes. If that was the case then anyone could be a model. Modeling is about conveying your thoughts and I believe I think differently. And modeling is a form of art, where it speaks a voice. A voice of style, a voice of attitude and a voice of intellect. The inner voice of what a person wants to convey through their body language.”
