World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about yourself.
My name is Sophia. I was born in India and came to Australia in 2000. I am a kinder teacher, philosopher, motivational and love fashion and modelling. Since my childhood I have participated in various social and community activities for e.g. singing, stage dramas and received various trophies and awards. My aim is to support girl child as still there are lots of places in the world where people think girls are burden. Still there are women in the world who are not appreciated, face domestic violence and lots of other problems. I believe in that if there will be no girl child born there will be no life and this planet will be finished.

It helped me to believe in myself. With circumstances and situations we lose our identity and self-esteem as I never thought that I was beautiful or smart. So definitely I got my confidence back.

It feels great. This girl who never felt good about herself as I said because of the situations and circumstances, now is an inspiration to all the girls out there, who at some stage not feel worthy. I meet lots of people all the time even my friends who have known me from long time says, that you are a great inspiration.
