World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about yourself. My name is Smriti Goyal. I am an entrepreneur, dancer, model, and actor. I am the director of a dance company in Melbourne Australia.

World Class Beauty Queens: What does women Empowerment means to you?
-Women Empowerment is to know your rights, to be able to follow your dreams without any hurdles.

The best pageant walk should be full of confidence, poise and grace. You need to be very careful on picking up the outfits. It should not be uncomfortable at all when you walking on the ramp.
