Why you entered The Miss India-DC Pageant?

I would like to participate in this pageant to meet new people like myself. It is also a great opportunity to showcase my talents and culture. It would be a wonderful experience.

What 3 words sum you up?


What is an interesting fact about you that not many know?

An interesting fact about me that many may not know is I love water activities. I love jet skiing and speed boating. I have never been parasailing or sky diving, but I would love to.

If you were a super hero, what would your super power be?

If I was a hero, my super power would be to heal others with all types of diseases. Being able to ease the pain of others would make such a great difference in our world.

If you could take three things to a desert island what would they be and why?

If I could take three things, I would take my phone to listen to music, food, and one of my closest friends to keep my company.

Most embarrassing moment:

My most embarrassing moment was when I was in 7th grade and I was in the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). At the award ceremony, I was wearing heels and I tripped while walking to get my award. The heels I was wearing weren’t even that tall which just made it more embarrassing.

Biggest inspiration:

My biggest inspiration is definitely my mom. She’s always taught me to stand up for myself and what I believe in. My mom jumps through hoops to make sure I get everything I need and want and I am forever grateful for her.

Worst nightmare:

My worst nightmare is being trapped in the jungle as I am not an outdoor person.

If you knew today was your last day on Earth, how would you spend it?

If I knew today was my last day on Earth, I would spend it with the ones I love, my friends and family. I’d probably want to go to an amusement park and just enjoy the day together to create long-lasting memories.

Best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten:

The best piece of advice I’ve ever gotten is to not judge anyone because you don’t know everyone’s story or what they’ve been though.

Where do you hope to see yourself in 10 years?

In ten years, I hope to see myself with a career that I love and hopefully starting a family.
