What is Women Empowerment according to you?
According to me women empowerment is simply the empowerment of women in our society and creation of an equal platform for both, men and women which provides equal opportunities and respect to both.
Message for society:
Women should come forward to participate in beauty pageants not only to win the title but also to feel good about themselves, there is no limit to what we as women can accomplish.
In this situation of a global pandemic where we are stuck inside our homes, many people are facing mental health issues. Being mentally healthy is as important as being physically healthy. I really want to give the message to our society that loving yourself is crucial and we should have a positive approach towards life. Nothing stays forever, this pandemic won’t too so let’s not lose hope and be happy!
How will you give back to society after becoming a Queen?
I shall strive for addressing the issue of gender equality. Gender equality is not only required for betterment of women but also for the social and biological balance of the society at large. As I am a part of the Save Girl Child Movement, I shall take this movement further by increasing its outreach to every nook and corner of the world.
Why have you participated in Mrs India International Queen?
Participating in a pageant means for me is to travel a lot, meet exciting people around the world and opportunity to win prestigious title of Mrs India International Queen and moreover it was my dream since childhood. But could not make it due to various reasons and my dream was left unaccomplished up till now, but through my life journey I have realized that there is no specific age to fulfill your dreams, and so I am here.
