World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about yourself.
I am a multiple crown winner which I’m very proud of. I hold master's degree in applied arts, bachelor's in arts and bachelor in Teaching and Education. I have experience in teaching students from rural areas to many renowned international schools. I have also worked with many elaborate fashion and jewelry designers as a model. I believe in social work and educating people is my passion and collaborated with many NGOs, as I believe if there is only one thing that a person can carry forward ; that is good education. which is why I chose to become a teacher. Currently I run my own art studio and I educate and mentor underprivileged children and young kids in my neighborhood and some rural areas. It’s the time of equality so I believe every individual should be financially and emotionally independent which is what I am working towards through education.
World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about your education.
While growing up I have visited many museums and art galleries that influenced me to learn more about art and the story behind art. So I decided to pursue my bachelors in arts and further earned my masters in fine art only to run my own art gallery and speak about my work through creativity. Furthermore, I hold a bachelor degree in education that has really helped me gain knowledge about delivering my thoughts and vision to people around me which was my main aim of earning this degree.
World Class Beauty Queens: What does women Empowerment means to you?
This reminds me of quote by GD. Anderson “Feminism is not making a woman strong, women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceive that strength” I think Female empowerment is all about equipping women and allowing women to make all the decisions related to their life through the different problems in society. That could also include raising women’s status through education, career, literacy, training, and other aspects of life. For me, it’s more about promoting a woman’s self-worth and their ability to do things based on their own choices and their right to influence social change for themselves and others.
