Priya Emmanuel, who featured four times in the 2013 Kingfisher calendar, spells compassion too

The half Indian-half Irish model Priya Emmanuel is more than what meets the eye. For with her body of a Greek goddess comes an impeccable spirit. “I have a positive aura that attracts people to me,” says the Miss Malaysia World and Miss Malaysia Universe pageant winner, who ‘shows off Malaysia through her eyes.’

Reminiscing about her very first modelling experience, she says, “Backstage was bizarre because of all the naked bodies.” She loved the Kingfisher calendar – for its shades of “sheer exploration, breathtaking locations and the perks of brilliant photography!” Having the perfect figure has come at a price. And the chocolate lover binges only if it’s worth every calorie.

The model with a heart who has trained her sights on Bollywood has co-founded an education centre for refugees in Malaysia. She feels, “Every child has the right to an education and I want these refugee kids to know that people care about them and that they matter.”
