How has your family reacted to your winning Asia Pacific Queen Of Substance 2017 & People’s choice award 2017?
They were all spellbound and in awe. They were very proud of me.
Other than your mother, who do you think is the most beautiful woman in the world?
I would say my Mother-in-Law.
Are you an evening gown or saree kind of girl?
Both have their days. I match my attire with occasions. I do like them both.
Some people think beauty pageants are shallow parades of beauty. What do you have to say to them?
To them I would like to say today’s beauty pageants are not based on just looks, but how a woman carries herself, how beautiful she is inside as well as her intelligence.
Where did that first thought about entering the pageant come from?
Long time ago when I was a little girl and I saw miss universe first time on TV.
Was there anything you watched or read throughout the entire journey to keep you company and to motivate you?
Oh I had been constantly reading and watching past beauty pageant shows and interviews of queens for constant motivation and learning.
When I was in college, I was approached by a fashion magazine to do photo shoots for them and also to participate in a local beauty pageant. I guess that was the start.
Who assured you that beauty pageants are totally your cup of tea?
I did not feel I needed any assurance from anyone. I felt confident from within.
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion is something that comes from within you.
