Pored egzotičnog porekla ono što izdvaja Madusha-u Mayadunne, zvezdu našeg majskog digitalnog cover-a jeste osvojena prestižna mis titula na izboru mis Šri Lanke. Razgovarali smo o dnevnoj rutini, dinamičnom načinu života između svetskih metropoila ali i o tome kako održava telo i um u svakodnevnom balansu. 

Kako organizuješ svoje obaveze shodno obavezama?

U životu sam oduvek bila jako disciplinovana, i smatram da je to ključ uspeha u bilo kojoj oblasti. Rano ustajem i počinjem dan meditacijom, vođenjem dnevnika i praksom zahvalnosti. Nakon toga slede obaveze sa spiska koji uglavnom sastavljam predhodne noći. Rešavam zadatak po zadatak shodno prioritetima. Kada završim sa poslom, sledi teretana, nakon toga tuširanje i sastanci ili snimanja u zavisnosti od dana do dana. Ukoliko pobediš jutro, pobedio si dan.

Vi ste bivsa misica Šri Lanke? Šta vas je inspirisalo da se prijavite na izbor?

Velika je privilegija mogućnost predstavljanja svoje zemlje na internacionalnim platformama. Živela sam i studirala u Velikoj Britaniji kada sam shvatila da je moj jedinstven izgled posledica mog nasleđa i želela sam da ponosno predstavljam žene iz mog regiona takođe želeći da budem inspiracija nekim nadolazećim generacijama žena da neustrašivo slede svoje snove.

Iza sebe imate dosta projekata. Tu su kampanje za ASOS, Boohoo, Pretty Little Things…Takodje slikali ste se za prestižne modne magazine kao što su Maxim, Elle i Vogue. Kako je vasa karijera krenula?

Ja apsolutno volim da radim sa hiperprodukcijama i ako bih volela da to što rade postane ekološki održivije.Kao model sam otkrivena relativno kasno, nakon što sam završila fakultet, za razliku od većine modela. To je dobar primer kako se moda menja uz intrernet koji širi naše vidike uz sve veći fokus na različitosti, demografske razlike i rodne identitete. Ovo je dobar primer za devojke koje žele da kreiraju svoju sudbinu, bitno je da znaju da mogu sve da postignu sve dokle god su posvećene i dok naporno rade.

Na koji modni projekat ste najviše ponosni i zašto?

Najviše sam ponosna što sam deo projekta, brenda koji proizvodi odeću od svile i zove se GENERATION OF SAINTS, i u tom projektu sam investitor i partner. Proizvodnja nam se nalazi na Baliju u Indoneziji, i tim se sastoji od lokalnih žena. Ovo stvara i otvara mnoge mnogućnosti za žene iz mog regiona a to je Azija. U pitanju su jedinstveni komadi od svile, koji su moderni, laki, elegantni a ujedno i seksi, jednostavno svaka moderna devojka ih mora posedovati.

Koja je vasa dnevna beauty rutina?

Mislim da lepota zaista dolazi iznutra, dakle topla voda sa limunom ujutu, zatim sok sa ceđenim celerom i đumbirom jednom dnevno. Ova rutina pomaže kod procesa detoksikacije. Takođe, svakodnevno vežbam bilo da je u pitanju teretana, hotelska soba, yoga, pilates, šetnja ili trčanje napolju. Kada je u pitanju nega kože tu moja rutina varira svake sezone u zavisnosti od vremena i putovanja.

Kako održavate telo i um u balansu?

Yoga, meditacija i pisanje me zaista održavaju u balansu. Oduvek sam bila veliki zagovornik mentalnog zdravlja i svesne prakse života. Kao modelu, moje telo je instrument mog rada. Tako da je veoma važno da ostanem dosledna svojoj rutini kao i da razmišljam na pravi način.

Živite između Majamija, Njujorka i Londona. Gde se osećate najprijatnije i zašto?

Najprijatnije se osećam u Majamiju, ali mi nedostaje porodica koja je u Londonu. Tu sam odrasla. Međutim, volim fleksibilnost i sposobnost putovanja između tih gradova kao i ono što svaki grad ponasob nudi. Smatram da je London mesto gde je moja komercijalna karijera započeta i u njemu najviše uživam u poslovnom smislu.

Kada su kastinzi u pitanju, šta bi bio vaš savet za sve?

Smatram da dnas imamo toliko mogućnosti kao žene da budemo uključene i da kreiramo sopstveni put. Uz toliko mogućnosti naravno ide i konkurencija. Tokom kastinga je potrebno da se izdvojimo. Smatram da predstavljanje na društvenim mrežama zaista pomaže. Svi imamo neku svoju priču i u ovom slučaju najvažnije je kako ćemo to da predstavimo.

As a model, how do you organise your daily schedule?

I have always been very disciplined in my life, I think that is the key to success in any field. I have always been an early riser, and I start my day with meditation, journaling and gratitude practice. Then I get to my to do list, which I usually make the night before. I tackle task by task from most important and urgent to the least. Once I do deep work for about 2 hours, I go to the gym, shower and head out to meetings or shoots depending on my day. You win the morning, you win the day!

You are a former Miss Sri Lanka. Tell us what inspired you to pursue the title?

It was such a privilege to represent my country on an International platform. I have been living and studying in the UK with my family, when I came to realise my unique look was due to my heritage and I wanted to proudly represent the women of my region and to be an inspiration for the next generation of women to pursue their dreams fearlessly.

You have a plenty of projects behind you. You worked for fast fashion companies such as ASOS, Boohoo, Pretty Little Things...and you have been featured in Maxim, Elle Cover and Vogue Cover. How did your career start?

Yes, I absolutely love working in fast fashion, though I do wish they would become more environmentally sustainable. I was discovered and became a model late in life, after I had finished my university degree, unlike most models. This is a great reflection of how fashion has changed with globalisation, and with the internet expanding our horizons to be more inclusive of all ages, demographies and gender identities. This is also a good example for girls who wish to create their own destiny to know that they can become anything as long as they are dedicated and work hard toward their goals.

What work are you most proud of in the fashion industry? Why?

I am most proud of being a part of the Silk clothing brand GENERATION OF SAINTS. Where I am an investor and the managing partner. We do our production in Bali, Indonesia with a team mainly consisting of local women. This empowers and creates opportunities for girls and women from my region, which is Asia. These one of kind silk staple pieces we make are modern, effortless and elegant with a hint of sexy and are a must have in any modern girl’s wardrobe.

What is your daily beauty routine?

I think beauty comes from within, I have a warm water and lemon most mornings, then a green juice with celery and ginger daily. This helps with inflammation and detoxification. I also work out daily, wether it is in the gym, my hotel room, pilates, yoga or simply a walk or run outside . My skincare routine varies during each season, weather and my travels.

How do you keep your body and mind in balance?

Yoga, mediation and journaling really help with keeping things in balance. I have always been a big advocate of mental health and mindful practice of life. Especially, as a model, my body is an instrument to my work. Thus, to stay consistent with my routine, having the right mindset is very important.

You live between Miami, New York and London. Where do you feel most comfortable and why?

I feel most comfortable in Miami, but I do miss London, because of my family. It’s where I grew up. However, I love the flexibility and the ability to travel between these cities and appreciate the opportunities each city offer. I think London is also where I bloomed at a commercial model and I enjoy working with my team in London the most.

For casting, what is our tip for everyone?

I think in today’s fashion, we have so many opportunities as women to be included and create our own path. It’s also made it more competitive. So, during castings we should bring something to the table. Like a good representation on social media defiantly helps. We all have a story and how we choose to present it matter’s in today’s fashion world.
