Challenge, because, my family comprises mostly of nerdy doctors and knows nothing about beauty pageants. Doctors are mostly known to be nerds and geeks and I am a doctor in making. I wanted to experience what it feels like being out there on the stage in front of hundreds of people, amongst other young girls resplendent in their beauty. I wanted to discover if I had the attributes of a real beautiful young woman, a total beauty at all levels – physically, emotionally, intellectually, mentally, spiritually and socially. There were so many pretty and lovely girls who had participated that I was completely and pleasantly surprised when my name was announced as the first runner up for this remarkable beauty pageant. What a fantabulous experience this has been!
Almost 3000 young girls had registered to participate in this competition. Out of these, 16 were chosen for the grand finale.
