Yasmina Alidodova is from Tajikistan, the 13 year old was the youngest among the ladies participating on the Calendar Girls 2016 project. Her story is therefore like the little cherry on the cake, that small something that you get even after the year has passed. She rings in the New Year with joy and childlike hope yet her values and thoughts reflect what the women of 2016 have spoken.

On the calendar Yasmina is representing the character of Cinderella. “She is a strong person and independent young woman who is truly beautiful because she doesn’t let her anger and sorrow get the better of her. She is kind to most, talented and always confident in herself. She is a hard worker and has a positive attitude. I can relate to her because this is also my own nature plus I love animals too.”

Yasmina is surely inspirational. She has already accomplished so much in her life. She started singing when she was 6 and got her first TV appearance on MBC at the age of 7. From there on, her parents caught onto her passion and sent her to LA for the Young Actors Camp where she mastered the craft. She is also a child model, and is the face of Red Tag (3 years), Armani Junior, Atlantis Hotels, DEWA, and a lot more. She is the winner of the ‘Best Junior Vocalist in the UAE’ by House of Rock, the second place in ‘UAE’s Got Talent’ for singing, and 1st place in ‘Eastern Motives,’ an international festival of youth creativity. Her recent and on-going project is the role of “Noor” for Berger Paints campaign – Colours of Arabia.

Honestly, she has done it all and has no air or teenage tantrums about it. Having her on the Calendar Girls project gave it a transitional understanding of how a girl and her understanding of beauty blossoms.

Maturity does not come from age, it is achieved by the learning from the chances one takes and grows from. “The understanding of beauty is not what’s on the outside; it’s what is in the inside. Beauty is about being confident in who you are and always being true to yourself. By being on the calendar I wanted to give a message to the world that the real beauty is not how you look but how you present yourself in front of the people with your positive thoughts and charming personality. A woman is beautiful and it is her personality, positive thinking and friendly approach that make a woman beautiful.”

“Every person should know that a woman is not beautiful by the way she looks, walks or wears her hair. Beauty isn’t always on the outside, it is inside. You need to look beyond a woman’s curves and complexion to discover her real beauty. A woman is beautiful in the way she speaks her mind, in the way she touches your heart with her warmth and tenderness and in the ways she mends and heals broken hearts with her unconditional love and compassion.”
