World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Please tell us about your platform.
My platform is all about helping people through education and supporting awareness programs globally. I’ve realized that helping other people brings immense happiness not only to people but also gave me eternal bliss. Being happy about showing compassion has been generalized as well as it sounds cliche, but it’s hard to discern until someone has truly experienced it. During my reign as the aforementioned with all pageant experience, I was fortunate to promote cultural awareness and community outreach among people of all ages. In addition, I worked with the Streets of Hope organization for homeless brothers and sisters, and we served over 200 homeless people food and donations, and free haircuts every year. Sometimes small things can also help someone such as I Keep a "Blessing Bag" in my car in case I see someone in need. I make care packages and food packages that could help my homeless brothers and sisters.
Along with this, I am also a certified Yoga Instructor where I serve the community with free yoga workshops and help children and adults to practice mindful ways of self-care. Yoga workshops helped me to reach out to every household for mothers and children for a mindful way of getting fit. So, working for a wellness program is also close to my heart. Apart from this, my platform is something that could create a positive and welcoming ambiance for the people. Many people are not aware of or are untouched by issues happening in others' life. Through my platform, I believe that people will get to know the social causes that I am passionate about it and be able to motivate others.
