World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your pageant history. I participated in the Mrs. Bharat California pageant in November 2022 (State Level Pageant). It was this time I needed a lot of grooming and practice. Just like my every other endeavor, I worked very hard and gave my best on the stage. All my efforts paid off when I was announced as the winner. I was crowned as Mrs. Bharat California 2022. Next, I represented the state of California in the Nationals. Worked harder this time as the competition was fierce. All state winners were participating and many were close competitors. I worked diligently on every dress I wore, worked closely with the make up artist to achieve perfection in my looks, practiced different walk styles, and made sure I was completely prepared for the question answer round. The reigning Ms. Universe Harnaaz Sandhu was present at the show for the crowning ceremony. Dreams felt like coming true as they announced my name as the winner. Getting crowned by Ms. Universe on such a big platform will always be cherished by me as an extremely proud moment. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What inspired you to do your first pageant? When a designer friend approached me for the pageant, I was absolutely not prepared. Having 2 kids and a long gap from my modelling days brought some kind of hesitation within me. But as I always loved fashion shows, pageants, ramp walks, and modeling; the thought of participating in the Mrs. Bharat pageant didn't leave me for a second. I decided to believe in myself, pursue my dreams which were long buried and said yes! I decided to not let my family responsibilities and my age become a barrier to fulfill my dreams. I very strongly believe that inspiration should always come from within yourself. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current title?Since I was a teenager I wanted to represent my country in the Miss World or Miss Universe pageant, but for various unavoidable reasons I couldn't pursue my dream. At the age of 35, I was thrilled to know that My Dream TV's Miss Bharat USA pageant also has the Mrs Category where I could finally showcase my talent. It is an extremely proud moment for any woman to win on such a big platform after getting married and having the responsibility of kids and family. I decided to compete for the Mrs. Bharat USA title as it was an opportunity to showcase my talent on a global platform.
