Height: 5’ 5”
I love acting. Last year I got selected into T.Schreiber acting school, which is one of the top acting schools in New York, played a leading female role in a short film and was chosen best actress in Twinderalla in my school play. I also enjoy dancing and have been trained in Kuchipudi for almost eight years. My favorite thing to do is serve my community. Last year I launched my own anti-bullying campaign and even had the opportunity to go to India and work with over 120 orphaned girls on issues relating to bullying and self-esteem.
I will be going to college in a year and I want to major in Business Management. I hope to some day launch my own business.
Why you entered The Miss India-DC Pageant?
I entered because this pageant gives a platform for young women to make a difference and if chosen as the next Miss India DC I want to make a lasting impact in the Indian community. I also entered because I love meeting new people and making new friends! I know that even after this pageant I will still be in touch with many of the girls.
What 3 words sum you up?
What is an interesting fact about you that not many know?
I can hulla hoop and dance at the same time! I am the first national born citizen of America in my family.
If you were a super hero, what would your super power be?
Having the ability to remove both physical and emotional pain in people.
If you could take three things to a deserted island what would they be and why?
A picture of my parent because I would constantly wish they were there but I would never want to put them in danger so the picture will help me when I start to miss them too much. A desert survival guide and lots of water so I can stay alive!
My dad because he grew up in a rural village where dreams were just dreams and his was to become an engineer. He worked hard and became the first person to graduate college and settle in a foreign country in his village. His story inspires me everyday to work my hardest even when all odds are against me because no dream is impossible.
Anything happening to my parents is my worst nightmare
If you knew today was your last day on Earth, how would you spend it?
I always work my hardest to make a difference so I would donate everything I had to a cause I believe in and spend the entire day with the people that are closest to me. Also I would be eating fudge the entire day! I love fudge!
Best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten:
“Don’t ever give up because failure is just one step closer to success”
Where do you hope to see yourself in 10 years?
I hope to have graduated college by then and have started working on launching my own business.
