Achievements/ Anything you are proud of yourself:
Earlier, it was my dream to become an IPS officer, and years back, I was selected as the best rifle shooter in Maharashtra during my NCC camp. Also, I have done proficiency in English and learnt classical music for 2 years as it was my subject in college. Lately, I have been attending events as a guest of honor and giving motivational speech for women empowerment.
What is Women Empowerment according to you?
According to my personal experiences in life I feel there is nothing stronger than a shattered and broken woman who can rebuild herself at any age. Just spread your wings and fly high and you have to give up on those negative things that weigh you down and above all be a Heroine of your life, not a victim! One day your life will flash Before Your Eyes, make sure it’s Worth Watching.
Most importantly, be proud of yourself. No matter what shape, size, and colour. You are beautiful. Flaunt your curves. Earlier, we were been told that fashion is for skinny models, but what about curvy people? We need to change the game. Love yourselves. This is what I am looking forward to and hope to see more ladies out there embracing their bodies with love not shame. Let’s celebrate the spirit of womanhood, let us not ask for favours and special treatment, let us not weep for how much we have endured. Let us just go out there and face the world and be the women that we really are! Dedicated to all the women who have the courage to be!
Message for society:
One may set up a donation box in their society to bring a small change in the world around you. Education is all about empowerment. It is one of the most important factors for retarding and preventing global poverty. You may contribute to increasing the nation’s literacy rate by educating more and more people.
It’s not just the only contribution that should be in cash, it can be in kindness as well by donating books, bags, stationaries etc and even people can go to the orphanage schools and teach them whatever subjects you master, just few hours a day for 3 days can create wonders in their life.
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
The purpose of beauty pageants is to find one’s personality, their own strengths and weakness as a person, gain confidence and raise their self-esteem, and prove to people that it is possible to have beauty and brains. I will spread awareness for people to believe in themselves. Moreover, I wish that my country should become a great nation with its talent and capability.
One of the dreams I’d like to achieve is for my motherland, people in India should be self-sufficient in food for which we have to make the barren lands productive. I would wish that India be at the apex in terms of science and technological progress. Also, work on sex education for children and spread more awareness about it (especially to the god-gifted, special children).
There are so many things you learn not only about yourself, but also about communication skills, leadership, interviews, and poise!
Pageantry is a doorway for those who want to be on stage, give back, and of course, learn more about themselves.
Why have you participated in Mrs. India International Queen?
Beauty pageant provides, especially to women, the platform to voice their opinions and showcase their talents and experience a sense of achievement.
During my audition with the director of Mrs India International Queen, Mrs. Ankita Saroha I gained my confidence, and the insights I received was that Mrs India International Queen is one of the best platform to find the visibility, discover and re-discover self and strengths, Increase Confidence, Enhance personality (during grooming sessions), interact with women from different states/countries/nationalities; thereby getting to know about other cultures and widening your horizons and represent your country and culture!
In short, the adrenaline rush that competition gives, a Confidence Booster, and the sheer sense of winning (despite sometimes not winning), are drawing more people towards the pageant journey.
After all, one emerges as a better version of oneself after the entire regime!
