Ishanka has walked the catwalk at all the major fashion shows in Colombo and is very popular in the fashion world.
Her advice is to drink plenty of water, eat healthy food, exercise and stay stress free and she is not one who lets little issues bother her.
She considers herself a peaceful, quiet person, who does not get involved in other people’s issues.
She says that in her life, she has had many happy moments, two of them are, when she won the Runway Supermodel Sri Lanka 2014, and the other when Brian called her and told her that he wanted her to represent Sri Lanka at the Supermodel International in Delhi, India.
This is her first International competition, and she is so happy that she finally got a chance to represent our beautiful country Internationally.
“I have to thank Brian Kerkoven, for giving me this opportunity” she said. “I would also like to thank, Kelly Felder, LICC, Gihan Nanyakkara, Kamil Hewavitharana, Sabry Junaid, Hiran Wijesekera, for the lovely National Costume, my dearest friend Shanaz, who helps me so much, a great friend and especially Nandisha Kalutota, who sponsored my airline ticket to Delhi”.
