Urvi believes that it's important to be kind, gentle and true to yourself. 
'Don't compare yourself to others. Their life is not your life, and you don’t want it to be. Be true to yourself and your own experience. Be aware of who and what influences you,' she professed on her Instagram. 'Be kind. Give and when you can,' the model says.
