This pageant has opened doors to so many wonderful opportunities. The Miss India South Africa committee (Kamisha Nanhoo Maharaj, Preetha Nanhoo, Farook Khan) have always been there to support and uplift our Indian community and shower them numerous opportunities. One can learn so much from such a prestigious pageant, such as modelling, grooming, etiquettes, public speaking skills and self confidence. It has been such an honour being an ambassador for my country and the Indian community. Apart of the glory of being a beauty queen and serving my country, she has managed to maintain high standards as a full time university student and was also awarded 2 bursaries/ scholarships in one year. Being on the KIP, which was for her prize for winning the
pageant, has also inspired her in so many ways. It has been a rich experience for her. Visiting my motherland India and learning about our culture, heritage, arts, culture, Indian governance and meeting various dignitaries/ delegates had been phenomenal. Visiting Delhi, Agra, Vrindavan, Mathura, Bihar and Orissa had been a humbling experience. She further says that it was a privilege meeting Indian diaspora from all over the world. It was good to see that no matter where in the world one can be, they are all proud to be Indian and is proud of their culture and heritage and have all managed to preserve our culture. Thanks must go to the South African Indian Consulate and Ministry of overseas Indian Affairs for sponsoring this trip. She is a strong believer in not letting the minimal requirement being a person’s maximum effort. With a positive attitude success is inevitable. Her next goal is to partake in Miss India South Africa International, where she will be given a global platform to positively made an impact in the lives of people worldwide.
