World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What does women empowerment mean to you?
For me woman empowerment is all about choice and ability to walk the path a woman wants to. She can be a homemaker, a professional, an entrepreneur, a sports player whatever she desires if it is her choice. A woman should be able to live, feel, express and flourish without worrying about what others will think about her. She should get same support as others to utilize her innate strengths and feel the pride in her accomplishments.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your pageant history.
It all started in September 2021, my mom got a call from a friend, who believed I had a potential. We discussed and as I had a lot of passion for fashion, we took the leap of faith, and the journey began. I competed in Miss Teen Bharat Georgia organized by Inspiration Enterprises in October 2021. With a great guidance from my pageant coaches and a lot of support from my family I not only won the crown of Miss Teen Bharat Georgia 2021, but I was also the winner of the “Beautiful Smile” award.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Who knew that this was just a beginning? I was encouraged to compete for nationals in Sterling Virginia in December 2021, representing my home state Georgia. These three days event was one of the best experiences I had. It included Washington city tour, celebrity meet and greet, music video shoot, talent round, jaw dropping grand event, and fierce competition on final day, which included three runway rounds along with Q&A. The most mesmerizing and memorable moment was when I was crowned winner of Miss Teen Bhart USA 2021 along with Miss Teen Most Worldwide Popular 2021 on my birthday December 13th . Oh, what a finish to year 2021! But that was not the end of pageant journey for me, I was again invited to compete in Miss Teen South Asia World 2022, one of the most prestigious, glamourous and grand pageant organized by My Dream TV USA in Dallas, Texas. This was one of the most thrilling and exhilarating experience for me. Competing with the participants who were unique, beautiful, and highly talented was very fun and of course daunting at times. The encouragement from my family, support from fellow participants and my belief that I can achieve anything that I put my focus and energy into, is what allowed me to push myself. I will never forget the evening of March 27 th , 2022, when I was crowned Miss Teen South Asia World 2022 and Miss Teen South Asia Worldwide Popular 2022 Winner by none other than the Bollywood actress Preity Zinta. It was one of the best moments of my life! I would like to give credit for these crown and victory to first my mom, who has been my #1 cheerleader, mentor and guide, my family and friends who never stopped believing in me and always offered their endless support.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What inspired you to do your first pageant?
There are two types of inspirations one can have, internal and external. For me my mom and her friends were the external motivators. Internally, it was my passion for fashion, dancing, and a will to take on a challenge and do something new is what motivated me to sign up for the pageant. It seemed a perfect opportunity to show not other but to myself that I can walk the path I have never been on regardless of the outcome.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current title?
Miss Teen South Asia World is one of the biggest platforms in the USA with many categories. After willing the Georgian and USA pageant this seems to be the natural progression and next level of competition. I wanted to continue to challenge myself and continue to learn more about the platform. The idea and opportunity to meet all the amazing participants, work with fashion and entertainment industry icons and learning from them was quite appealing as well.

The main idea of this pageant system is to empower each contestant and groom them to bring out the best of her. The pageant system tries to spread the message of positivity and give a platform to all participants to voice their opinion.

Initially, like others, I used to think that pageant is all about external beauty. It's much more than that, it's about your personality, your confidence, your ability to carry yourself, think on your feet and adopt to the situation.

What is your onstage strategy to win the judges over?
Judging these events are no easy task and every judge knows what goes on. With over three rounds there is so much chaos with change or outfit, makeup, hair styles. At the end of the day what really mattered to me was the focus to demonstrate my ability and confidence to highlight my outfit’s uniqueness with the emotions and attitude needed. I believe in keeping my smile on and showcasing my personality to the judges.
World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did you prepare for your competition?
Once I registered for the pageant, I worked with my mom in planning out the details. We thought of my looks, hair styles, dresses, etc. I watched many Miss America, Miss World, and Miss Universe pageant videos, prepared my answers, ran scenarios in my mind. I spent several hours every day practicing my dance for talent show, practicing my walk with and without my outfits until the very last day of the event.
