Its very awful fact that while we keeping up with the technology, there are thousands of people still looking for food.

The moment I heard my name, I was shocked, excited and nervous. It was a very exciting moment and one of the best moments of my life. It was a dream come true.

As a beauty queen I want to tell my community that I am always there for help and support.

Through this platform I also understand that every day is not a golden day and its OK to not win however never lose hope. World Class Beauty Queens: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image?
It give me a courage to come in front of public without even thinking about my body image. Through this process I learned that every one is beautiful and all we need to trust ourselves and move forward. Beauty is not how we look but how our action motivates and help others.
World Class Beauty Queens: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel?
It feels great but it gives me a sense of huge responsibility on my shoulder. I can use this platform to motivate and encourage people to try your best and don’t worry about failure.

In My first pageant I was focused more on my dress rather than focusing on overall event. I could have practiced my walk, my speech and prepared my interview. World Class Beauty Queens: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest?
