What isWomen empowerment according to me:
It is abolishing gender discrimination, starting from her birth to her entire life by giving her right to breath immediately after birth to come to this beautiful world. Giving her equal access to health care facilities, education, employment and giving her right to make her own choices and live her life in her own way.
Message to society:
Each and every individual has born with some or another special power, you just need to recognize that power within you and work hard to live your dream, never give up. Every person has duty to shine and contribute to society to make difference.
How will I give back to Society after becoming Queen:
*Although, I am currently working in private sector, given an opportunity I would like to work in areas of need and help poor people who cannot afford high quality care. I am working on setting up free /low cost NICU with government Grant and help poor people.
*India has world’s largest youth population. Given an opportunity, I would also like to address three main issues of our young generation1) lack of knowledge of healthy sex practice 2) Drugs 3) Excessive use of Social media by educating adolescents about healthy practices.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
I have participated in Mrs India International Queen because I want to explore myself and experience myself the journey through this path.
I want to encourage all women by setting an example that if a woman decides, she can do anything. Age and profession don’t restrict her. If I can do then they all can do.
