What is Women Empowerment according to you?
Women empowerment is the realisation of the power which resides within us. For me, women empowerment enables women to take control of their own lives and set their own goals by breaking down the shackles of age-old patriarchy. The sense of self-belief, confidence, literacy, and financial independency are some of the pre-requisite to women empowerment.
Message for the society:
For a good Society, first of all, we should have a ‘we feeling’, i.e. a feeling of togetherness and belongingness. In these uncertain times, we should recognise that everyone needs help in one form or another and nobody is immune to adversities of life. We should start helping others before expecting the same from them. We should respect individuals, have a sense of gratitude and be humble.
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
I want to create more awareness for cancer patients, help them regain their confidence so that they can deal with the situation and emerge as conquerors. I would like to inspire them and help them in believing that it is just a phase of life, which can be surpassed with positivity, determination and will power.
Education is another area, I always wanted to work towards, especially, for underprivileged children. I would like to carry forward the motto of ‘each one, teach one’. Further, I want to work towards empowering women in rural areas by helping them to gain financial independence on the strengths of their creative skill-sets.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
Mrs India International Queen, is one of the most prestigious platforms, which recognises women of substance and promotes women empowerment. These two beliefs are very close to my heart. The motto of this pageant ‘Be Strong, Be Confident, Be You’, is something which motivated me and is easily relatable with my journey of life. I believe that this platform will not only help in strengthening my belief in my potential, but would also enable me to achieve higher purpose of my life, which is to work for cancer patients, education for underprivileged children and rural women empowerment.
