Above all, I am a mother and that’s what makes me complete, World Class Beauty Queens: What does women Empowerment means to you? Women empowerment according to me is not being considered equal to men but to be treated equally. I basically mean to say that we should be given the right to take important decisions. We need to be trusted and given freedom to express thyself. This is what I consider empowering women to be. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your pageant history. In 1995, I was crowned Miss Cavelossim that’s where I started to believe in myself and decided never to stop. In 2019, I had been crowned 1st Runner Up in a pageant before also, and in the present year 2020 I have been crowned Classic Mrs India International Queen 2020 1st Runner Up. World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do your first pageant? My inspiration to go out of my comfort zone and explore the best things. Since I was kid, I always liked exploring new things like places... and here I was at it exploring amazingly beautiful places around the globe... Whatever I am capable of doing is because of my beautiful family, my ever inspiring daughter, and my always pushing and never stopping husband. They have always supported me in every step I've taken they are always there and for all this I am thankful to God for all that he has given me and done for me and most, importantly for always being there when I needed him (God) the most.
World Class Beauty Queens: Why did you choose to compete for your current title?
I choose to compete for my current title because I felt the need to move out of my comfort zone. My daughter said to me go ahead and prove your worth, show everyone what a woman can do. She quoted "you only live once, do what makes you happy." Thus, I choose to compete. World Class Beauty Queens: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about? To those unfamiliar with this pageant system its very fair, everyone gets a equal chance to prove thyself. It basically allows you explore the wildest and most capable side of you. So, I would suggest to every women to part take in this pageant. World Class Beauty Queens: What are you being judged on during the competition? During the pageant, you were mainly judged upon your kindness, how polite you are. Kindness and goodness are the main aspects to be judged on, not to forget your efforts in presenting yourself, emotional quotient is not to be forgotten. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your experience during the competition. It was a very pleasant experience. According to me we were all judged fairly, there was no biased judgement, all of us were given fair chance to prove ourselves, I was very comfortable among the contestants and the organizing team, I didn’t feel out of place and I learnt a lot of things. So, it was a very good learning experience which I will cherish for life time. World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for.
I volunteered for helping people with free legal aid. As the services of lawyers are exorbitant and people cannot afford to take legal aid, I would like to help support such people, which I am currently doing on a small scale.
World Class Beauty Queens: What appearances have you done with your title?
I had been given the opportunity for a special appearance at "Runway inspiration by Anusha" which was a fashion show where a young talented designer 'Anusha Shaik' showcased her new designs highlighting the blind children. World Class Beauty Queens: What are some of your achievements?

The moment my name was called out as winner, I was filled with joy. I broke out with a bigger smile on my face and cried tears of joy. I thought how happy my family would be for me and for this achievement, and also how could I justify the title by doing good for people.
