Interesting Fact
On 07/08/22 I swam 100 laps in 75mins for my charity swim for BWAP! For the past 10 years my mother and I have been a part of the Indian Ladies club. It is a club which helps the Indian ladies diaspora in the UK mingle with one another and form beautiful friendships. A lot of the ladies who attend the events are elderly and have no family of their own in England. So when it comes to the big Indian festivals such as Diwali and Vaisakhi they have nobody to celebrate with. Therefore, as a club we try to hold events every year for these special festivals giving the ladies an opportunity to make beautiful memories with the other members and not feel alone. I attend every event so that I can show the ladies our generation of young Indian ladies have not forgotten them and want to maintain the link! This club has done wonders for the Indian ladies mental well being and I am proud to be a young Indian lady and a part of this wonderful club

Interesting Fact
I have lost both my parents as a teenager, which made me experience a lot of hardships. In the process, I learned to be grateful for the life, counted my blessings and privileges and became very empathetic towards the underprivileged. Since, I had a close brush with my change in fate. My experiences have made me wise, courageous, independent and extremely resilient. I have learned to see the silver lining and tackle every life throws at me with positivity. Miss World through Miss England would provide me with the platform to use my opportunities to increase access to healthcare in rural areas around the world. I'm a swimmer, basketball player, athelete, trained in Indian vocals. Self taught in Indian classical and western dance I have represented Manchester in Dance competition.
