Achievements/ Anything you are proud of yourself:
I am very proud of all my personal and professional accomplishments so far in my life, specially completing my post graduate studies while I was having a newborn baby and creating a women’s brand ‘Minzara’ with a vision to empower women and celebrate their uniqueness and authenticity.
What is Women Empowerment according to you?
According to me women empowerment means, elevating women’s self-worth, their power and freedom to make their own life choices and control their life both inside and outside their home, their ability to form opinions and speak up with confidence and no fear.
Providing equal access to educational and occupational resources and opportunities there by leading to financial freedom.
Ensuring her health and wellbeing through accessibility to healthcare, ensuring safety and security through strict law enforcements, ensuring that she is treated with dignity and respect both within the family and society.
I believe the first step towards women empowerment starts from within our own families by treating our sons and daughters equally and teaching our sons how treat and respect women and teaching our daughters to stand up for themselves and not settle for less than what they deserve.
Message for the society:
I am very thankful to my husband and my family for supporting me in pursuing my passion.
I hope that all men in the world instead of feeling insecure, would take pride in supporting and empowering women in their life to achieve their dreams and celebrate their accomplishments.
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
Being a Queen, I will proudly embody the values of Mrs India International Queen organisation and be an example to the married women out there, to inspire and influence them to aim high and achieve anything they wish for.
I would use my brand as a platform to take initiatives to uplift women to feel beautiful in their uniqueness and authenticity. I would create awareness to help women find beauty in their actions that they take in service to others, I would help them find beauty within themselves, I would celebrate women being strong, confident and being themselves rather than following society set beauty standards. I would also like to create a social group where women can support each other in their business or any other areas of passion with their skills and knowledge.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
I have decided to participate in Mrs India International Queen for a few reasons. Firstly, the values and motto of the organisation personally resonated with mine.
I believe that this pageant will be the stepping stone to accomplishing my dreams of becoming a star.
This pageant will give me the opportunity to liase with industry experts to help bring out the best in me. I would like to challenge myself, learn and evolve from this experience.
This is the platform for me to be the role model for my children and make my family proud.
Moreover, this is my opportunity to share my story to inspire women especially married women of all ages, sizes, colours and backgrounds to find beauty within, believe in themselves and follow their dreams.
