Dulish Thennakone is the name. He hails from Negombo City in Sri Lanka but is mostly based in Dubai, UAE. He worked as a fashion and photographic model before but is now doing work as a Floral Designer.
I asked Dulish to write about himself. Here is what he came up with.
Let us welcome and wish Dulish well in the Mister Tourism World 2016 competition and may he bring the best version of himself once he lands in our shores next month.
If I have to describe myself in one word, that would be ‘Artist’. I am a person who loves nature as I grew up in a beautiful village in Negombo City in the western province of Sri Lanka to a religious catholic family.
As a multi-talented man, singing dancing and painting are my hobbies. To become a professional actor is my career ambition as I love acting as well.
My current profession is floral designing, it’s one of my artistic skills. As a Sri Lankan, I’m always proud about the culture and the heritage of my country which is more than 2500 years old. And also I love to study about other cultures and heritages.
I am a very friendly fashionable man who always takes care of my mental and physical well-being. I always love to look perfect wherever I go or whatever I do.
So I believe, I have the perfect personality to be the first Mr. Tourism World.
You have your cut out for you. It’s all up to how the breaks of the pageant will go to your favor. Good luck and have a good journey to this part of Asia!
