Sitting here I’m thinking back to the weekend I was crowned Miss Southern Alberta World 2017. It was one of the most exciting thing that happened to me this year. That being my second crown after I was crowned Miss India Worldwide Canada 2016 as first runner up. I am looking forward to have you all join me on my new journey from here on. But to begin with, let me tell you a little bit about me. I was born on a cold snowy winter day in beautiful city of Toronto and at a young age I moved to the wild west… Calgary! Growing up I always enjoyed performing in front of large audiences, I was 6 years old the first time I performed in front of my entire elementary school! I have always had a passion for theatre and acting, thus I aspire to be an actress one day.
Keeping my childhood dream alongside, I am also pursuing a degree in Psychology. Mental health has always been something I give much value to, because without our minds, we would be nothing. Something I hope to achieve is to get rid of the stigma against Mental health, thus that is what my Beauty with a Purpose project entails. I believe that everyone has the right to be loved, and one way we can achieve this is to educate people on what mental health is all about, and to beat the myths! Not only that, but I’m a strong believer of will power and determination. I know that every person is capable of achieving anything they desire in this world, as long as they set their mind to it; and I will achieve this.
During my spare time I love to read an occasional book, or go to the gym. A healthy lifestyle has always been a must for me. Eating clean and working out make you glow like theres no tomorrow! And of course I do have my occasional (or multiple) cheat meals too. I also always make sure to take out some time to volunteer in the community, whether it be at the mustard seed or the distress centre, because I think theres nothing more precious than putting a smile on someone’s face.
From here forward, I can’t wait to be a part of exciting events and do greater things for my community. I feel honoured that I will represent Calgary and all of the Southern Alberta region at Miss World Canada, and I’ll need all your support and love during it.
