She is no stranger to the camera flashes and reflectors of photo shoots, having modelled several times.
So when the opportunity to model for MLB came, Miss Jaspreet Kaur Sekhon accepted it without hesitation.
The 36-year-old told TNP: "I love modelling. Each time I get to model, my confidence grows."
Miss Kaur, who modelled for womenswear brand Pure Earth several years ago, said the MLB shoot took place at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. Her favourite part was dressing up in different clothes and trying out different poses.
She said: "It was very fun and exciting. It really helped to raise my self-esteem and confidence."
Miss Kaur, a childcare teacher, believes that it is important to include people with special needs and give them the same opportunities.
She said: "I have seen a change in my friends (the other models). They are more confident now."
