A Multi-talented Fashion Icon and Entrepreneur
In the year 2003, a woman with passion and ambition stepped foot in Dubai and fulfilled her dreams by setting up the multi million dollar empire that is Diva Group of Companies.

Nicole Rodrigues is an individual who has come a long way and today stands as the Founder of the Diva Modeling Agency. Back in 2003, she noticed that there was a gap in the talent agency. She wanted to see a certain kind of structure when it came to talent acquisition, talent promotions and similar initiatives. Speaking of her love for real beauty, Nicole says  “Beauty is not just about the segregation of looks but about how one views themselves.” She emphasizes upon the fact that people need to start believing in their own beauty as that is what will get them out of their comfort zones and help them accept themselves. Having been in front of the camera herself, she knows the amount of courage that is required to do so and hence ensures that every aspiring model feels comfortable in his or her own skin.

Nicole didn’t just stop at that and in 2005, she expanded her venture into Diva Holdings which is a real estate company. Post that, she attended  Harvard Business School and graduated from there after which she went on to further branch her company out into Diva Salon and Diva Laundry. Her constant endeavors have brought many awards to her name such as Great Women Awards 2013, Top Indian Leaders in the Arab World, Indian Innovator Awards – 2016, Indian Innovatory Awards: Entrepreneur of the Year, 2019 and many more.
