Adline Castelino was born and raised in Kuwait and moved by herself at 15-years-old to Mumbai, the “City of Dreams,” to pursue her aspirations.
Today, Adline is a top model, working with India’s leading talent agencies, and is seen on runways, magazine covers, television and digital campaigns for major fashion and lifestyle brands. Adline used her entrepreneurial spirit to obtain her business administration degree from Wilson College and enjoys the creative opportunities her career path provides.
Adline works as a Goodwill Ambassador for Smile Train, is the face for the PCOS Free India Campaign, and collaborates with SNEHA, an organization that provides affordable healthcare to women. Her grandmother died giving birth to her mother at the young age of 22, because she could not afford healthcare.
This drove Adline to advocate for the rights of farmers in her community to have sustainable livelihoods and works closely with Vikaas Sahyog Pratishtan to give back to deprived rural communities.
As a child, Adline lived through a war in Kuwait and was rescued by the Indian embassy.
Adline once made and sold shoes – it’s shaped how she thinks about failure and success!
She's had a stutter ever since she can remember. It took her years of practice to overcome it and hold a clear conversation.
