She's beautiful, hard working and inspiring.

Meet Pranati Rai Prakash, the 21-year-old doe-eyed beauty from Patna who beat 12 other models to win MTV's Next Top Model this year.

The title allows her to model for some leading fashion and lifestyle brands over the next 12 months.

If you have been following her on Instagram, you'll realise that there is a lot more about this young model than mere looks.

IMAGE: After completing her schooling from Notre Dam Academy, Patna, Pranati Rai studied fashion communication at NIFT, Mumbai. That's where she developed a love for fashion and modelling.

IMAGE: Pranati is a huge travel buff and loves interacting with the locals. She credits this trait to her growing up and student years when she travelled to Srinagar, Port Blair, Bhatinda, MHOW, Delhi, Trivandrum, Shillong, Dehradun, Patna and more recently, Mumbai.

IMAGE: The young girl is proud of India's culture and often wishes her fans and followers at festivals. She posted this picture on Ganesh Chaturthi.
'
Ganeshji is my favourite! While younger, I used to write letters addressed to Ganeshji every time I was super happy or upset. I adore him and it's such a special day!' she wrote on the image sharing site.

IMAGE: Her secret to a toned body and balanced mind? Yoga!

'Yoga isn't only a means to physical fitness but mental strength and calmness. It's my way of spending time with myself refreshing my thoughts and gaining better control over my mind' she explains.

IMAGE: And boy, this girl can ride a SUPER BIKE! She often hits the road on the mean machine and even posts photographs to treat her fans. Isn't that cool?

IMAGE: The best part about Pranati is that she's humble and never loses the opportunity to thank the important people around her. Here she is posing with her hair stylist Medha Wadekar on the sets of MTV's Next Top Model.

IMAGE: Even before she entered the show, Pranati confessed that she'd love to work with Lisa Haydon. And here she is, doing a dance number with one of her favourite models. Dreams do come true, don't they?

IMAGE: When it comes to fashion, Pranati is quite an adventure freak and can carry off just anything. The braided and messy hairdo brings out her spunky side.

IMAGE: #ChallengeAccepted! Not many girls can wear a spider on the sleeve and look so confident and glamorous as her.

IMAGE: Pranati knows that modelling comes with social responsibility too. She often takes out time to interact with underprivileged students in different parts of the country. This one's from a motivational session at a BEd school in Jharkhand. Proud of you girl!
