What is Women Empowerment according to you?
Every women’s success story should be an inspiration to another. I believe we are strongest when we cheer and egg each other on. According to me woman empowerment is about creating a strong woman by being one.
Nature has already made a woman mentally and emotionally strong. The only empowerment is to allow them to develop to their full potential. She should be made to believe in herself and follow her dreams. I really believe that to change the world, one should begin with oneself. The freedom to be able to take one’s life’s decisions by herself is ‘Woman Empowerment’.
Message for society:
Domestic violence is something that I condemn from my innermost core. My ideal world would be one in which our daughters would be able to live a life of dignity, a life of respect and one of self-worth. I believe that removing the bane of domestic violence would be one huge step towards achieving the better world that we all dream of.
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
I have shortlisted in my mind a few bodies working towards upliftment of underprivileged children and their education. Through this platform I would like to and would try to do my bit for the less fortunate children of God.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
Everyone needs a new milestone in life. My desire to be identified, valued and respected made me choose this event so that I’m able to rediscover myself in this new chapter of my life.
At the age of 42, at the crossroads of my life , I feel that I need to prove a point to myself again.
