I see beauty from inside and out. Photographs can be deceiving yes, but it is also revealing. Venus Raj, a Miss Universe 2010 Candidate and Runner Up, model, and now, a traveler of the world, has been on top of the people that I admire, and a person who was able to reveal great and inspiring philosophy through photographs. Apart from her stunning beauty, she has also demonstrated humanity, kindness, and humbleness.
These pictures were taken about 5 years ago. Now, Ms. Raj has been travelling the world. And I love following her adventures on Instagram. It's impressive that the beauty that she shares are not of herself, but rather, the beauty she sees in the people, community, nature and her faith. This makes her a very admirable individual, and a true ICON.
