A young Maldivian Vogue model student was found dead hanging from a ceiling fan with a scarf tied around her neck inside a hostel dormitory.
Raudha Athif, 21, was discovered by her roommates in an apparent suicide. Though the Superintendent of the hostel couldn’t believe it as she said that Athif always looked happy and its hard to believe that she would commit suicide.
Athif was quite active on social media and has posted her numerous modelling pictures on Instagram. The medical student saw modelling as a hobby rather than a career and ultimately prioritised her desire to become a doctor over the fashion industry.
She was a second-year student at Islami Bank Medical College in Bangladesh and became an internet sensation with her unique ‘Maldivian Girl With Aqua Blue Eyes’ photos. The heartbroken family and friends of Maldivian model have created an online memorial in her honour.
