Femina Miss India World 2017 Manushi Chhillar who was recently crowned Miss World 2017 received a heart-warming welcome in Delhi on Tuesday. Hundreds of people swarmed in to catch a glimpse of the beauty upon her arrival at the Delhi airport.
Manushi addressed a press conference in Gurugram, where she spoke about her inspiration and how she plans to contribute to the society. Here are some excerpts from the same.
“My first role model was my mother. She’s always been around me. We’ve lived each dream together. The way she balanced everything has always made me want to be like her but growing up, I have seen so many strong women. One of the Miss Worlds, I have always looked up to is Dr Reita Faria. she was the first Asian to win the Miss Worldcrown and what I really like about her is that she followed her passion. I might be a little biased towards her because she’s a doctor but I like the fact that irrespective of how many offers she got, she became a gynecologist,” said Manushi.
When asked what’s common between being a doctor and a beauty queen, Manushi said, “As a doctor and a Miss World your purpose is the same, you want to make the world better for everyone.”
For now, Manushi is looking forward to making the most of her position.
