I was born and brought up in India and moved to Australia 10 years ago. I married to the love of my life 7 years ago and we have a four year old son.

Moreover, I loves my femininity and values my family life. World Class Beauty Queens: What does women Empowerment means to you? To me women empowerment means making the women aware of their worth and potentials and also, making them capable of taking decisions about their private or professional life without coercion. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your pageant history. It have been the most dynamic days in my life. I have celebrated the common love with my fellow contestants and learned a lot from each one of them about different cultures, values and the hard work they put in. I learned women do have the power to change the future from my fellow contestants. World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do your first pageant? Since my school days I like to watch beauty pageants and Indian contestants winning all over the world gave me a lot of inspiration. World Class Beauty Queens: Why did you choose to compete for your current title? I competed for this title to challenge myself in front of the vast audience and communicated with confidence that I am proud to be women and a mother. It gave an opportunity to uphold women empowerment. Also, it helped me to fulfill my dream to become a beauty queen. World Class Beauty Queens: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about? The pageant I participated is 'Mrs India Queen of Substance' which is a registered dignified pageant runs annually to identify married Indian women who exemplify beauty, talent, intelligence and compassion. There were 43 contestants from different countries. World Class Beauty Queens: What are you being judged on during the competition? We were judged on various rounds by different judges. To get selected as a finalist, there was an audition and after that we were assessed on our philanthropic work, and the video that we made as a finalist. During the competition days there were interview round, talent round, sports round, introduction round, traditional wear round with heavy prop, evening gown wear round and final question and answer round for top 15 contestants on the stage. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your experience during the competition. Overall, my experience during the competition was great! I was amazed by the hard work done by all other women for this special journey. It was an excellent experience with the most strongest and competent married women of India. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for. I entered with the purpose of women empowerment. Most women, (Indian women) have recognized their worth and potentials through education and other familial privileges but still there are women who find it hard to choose their private and professional choices in the male dominated society. I believe the idea of women should stay within the bounds of household will get challenged when ordinary women like me doing extraordinary things like participating and crowning as Mrs India. World Class Beauty Queens: What appearances have you done with your title? I was featured in one of the circulating news papers in Kerala, India. I was acknowledged as Mrs India by one of the Melbourne's largest Kerala community organisation. I am excited to visit my hometown for the first time in December after winning the crown. I invited as a guest in few schools and community organisations in Kerala, India. I am very happy and grateful for these opportunities. World Class Beauty Queens: What are some of your achievements? Every aspect of my life gave me achievements which helped me to become a fully fledged women. However, if I point it down, my biggest achievement is my title as Mrs India International. Professionally speaking my biggest achievement is my job, I work as a clinical nurse specialist in one of the largest hospitals in Melbourne. My educational qualifications come next, currently I am undertaking a thesis. I consider my cute young family is another great achievement in my life, which includes my husband who is a business man and my four year old son. Also, I am extremely proud of my modelling career. Overall, I am fully contended about my financial stability so that I can support myself and my family. World Class Beauty Queens: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls? I was not competing against other girls, I was competing to myself to make me feel proud. Being coming from a middle class family and brought up in a conservative village during my childhood, I believe my unique life circumstances makes me stand out from all other beautiful girls. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner. I was extremely happy. I thanked God and I felt really grateful to those who helped me to win this title. World Class Beauty Queens: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? To me a beauty queen should be a confident and genuine person who can influence other people through her life. Also, she should have good family values. World Class Beauty Queens: How did competing in pageants helped your life? Competing in pageants gave me more opportunities in modelling and also it helped me stand for certain good causes which I always wanted. World Class Beauty Queens: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image? The pageant helped my self esteem and this is the biggest learning. You don't necessarily say 'yes' all the time, and it's okay to say 'no' and putting people in right places. In regard to my body image I think I did not change much as I am keeping myself fit and healthy through regular work out and healthy eating even before the pageant.
