Tell us about yourself
My name is Arjun & I am from North India. I came to Canada 4 yrs ago. I served in merchant navy as a 3rd officer for 3 yrs, most of the time was in sea after completing my studies.
When did you start model?
I started modelling when I came to Canada in Jan 2015, did one volunteer show, met new people & faces & designers who helped me in all the shows or shoots I did after that
Who inspired your modeling career?
I got inspired as I was very fond of taking my pics all the time & putting them on social media so this addiction just became a dream. When I got the visa for Canada, I thought I will give a try in north America with more professional & skillful people connected with the fashion industry.
