I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the appreciation and the encouragement you have provided me through this journey. I was crowned as one of the finalists for Miss World Canada in March 2017 at the provincial Alberta crowning.

 

The finalists are competing for Miss World Canada and the winner will represent Canada at the Miss World Contest. This is a very exciting opportunity for me and I believe it will give me the platform I need to speak to a larger audience about everything I am passionate about.

I am a graduate from the University of Calgary and currently work at a financial institution as a Financial Planner. I work with valued clients to help them invest and plan for their long term goals, such as retirement. The part I love most about my job is meeting new people and getting to know them. I love to volunteer and currently volunteer at Sabrang Radio/Fairchild Radio 94.7fm in Calgary. I do a talk show every week on Tuesdays at 7pm to talk about various issues to raise awareness in the community. Please follow my blogs to know what types of topics I discuss and why.   

My family and I moved to Canada over 14 years ago from India and have lived in Calgary since then. I love my lifestyle here and feel very privileged to be a part of such a beautiful country. I think the residents of Canada are very lucky to be living in such a wonderful country where there is so much multiculturalism and acceptance of minorities. Because of this reason, I try my best to give back to the community as much as possible, especially to the ones in need and who are not so privileged.

While incorporating Yoga into my everyday routine, I also love to play Tennis, Badminton and Squash. Originally being from India, I am a huge Cricket fan and follow my national Indian Cricket team very closely. I also enjoy watching other sports such as Hockey and Basketball.

That’s all today folks. I will be sure to continue my blogs and keep sharing my thoughts with you. Any feedback is appreciated!
