Ariska created a buzz during a recent photoshoot when the beauty donned a black swimsuit looking all sensuous and confident. The title did not come easy to Ariska. She had joined a modelling school when she was in high school. During college, she participated at the Puteri Indonesia North Sumatera 2014 and even after brushing up her modelling skills through the training, she could only land at the second runner up position. Her passions and her mom’s dreams inspired her to try again and work hard, finally getting her the Puteri Indonesia North Sumatera 2015 crown and contributing to her incredible win at the national pageant Puteri Indonesia 2016, as well the country’s first ever international pageant.
