How does it feel to win the Himalayan Buzz’s Miss Uttarakhand 2020 pageant?
It feels amazing and I am very happy to make my parents proud, especially my mother as she faced many difficulties in convincing my father for sending me to Dehradun for this pageant.
What was the first thought that came to your mind when they announced your name as the winner?
The very first thought which came to my mind was the feeling of gratitude for my god and the universe. And secondly, I thought about the happiness of my family and friends, as their happiness means everything to me.
Did you expect that win? Tell us honestly
Yes, of course, I expected to win. From the beginning itself, I was very focused about it as I wanted to win that crown for my mother because she faced many hurdles for me during that pageant.
How did your friends and family members react to your victory?
They were very happy and proud of me (laughs). In fact, my two best friends were so happy that they didn’t sleep the whole night and we’re telling everyone about my win.
How was your experience during the pageant?
For me, it was one of the most fun & memorable experiences to date. I’ve learned a lot of things and it also boosted my confidence and communication skills.
All the finalists attended grooming sessions together for more than a week, how was the bonding with other girls? Made any friends?
Honestly! I didn’t make any friends over there because we all were there for a competition. For me to make friends, it takes a lot of time to bond and to know them properly.
Who was your biggest competition in the Miss Uttarakhand pageant?
I never looked at anyone from a competition perspective. I myself was the biggest competition for me. Being a better version of myself was my prime goal.
What do you think were the judges looking at while deciding the winners?
Judges were definitely looking for a beauty with brain, confidence, positive attitude and a good personality.
Did you always want to be a beauty queen? If not a beauty queen what would you be?
Of course not. Every girl in her own way is a beauty queen. And if not a beauty queen then I would have been a good person spreading happiness and positivity to people all around me.(which I already do).
Lastly, any message to all the aspiring girls who dream for Miss Uttarakhand? And what’s your future plans?
Be positive, confident and just believe in yourself and be grateful About each and everything you have in your life!!!…
