What Superhero would you like to be and why?
If I could live anywhere in the world, although I love my home in Georgia, I would love to move to India. My grandfather was born in India and immigrated to the United States when he was just seventeen years old. I would love to experience the culture with him and learn more of the language of Hindi, so that I could communicate with people from India and America. Plus, Indian food is my favorite!
What according to you is a true friend?
A couple of years ago my family & I went to Cancun. We all love the ocean so we decided that we would surf. It looked pretty easy so we thought, how hard could it be? Little did we know that surfing takes a lot of skill. We were all falling off of the boards and crashing into the waves, it was hilarious! We laughed all day and had the best time together as a family.
How do you handle criticism?
My goal as Miss Teen International 2018 is to spread the word about body positivity. I want to reach out to all types of people from all backgrounds and teach them the importance of loving your body and feeling confident. I will show them how to be a good role model and love their bodies; regardless of their size. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of all mental disorders, I want to end that.
When was the last time you tried something new?
Beauty comes from within. A truly beautiful woman is seen for her kind heart and selflessness. Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, colors, and backgrounds. Beauty has no number and no look. EveryBODY is beautiful their own way! It is beautiful for a young girl/woman to plan and achieve her goals and dreams with confidence. Healthy habits and attitudes can help her to do this. Beauty is strength, power, and simply being yourself.
