Speaking on her plan to bring a social change, Manushi said she is trying to use the platform she has got to bring some awareness about menstrual hygiene in India. “I am trying to bring a change step by step. My project for menstrual hygiene is about empowering girls because once females start feeling there’s nothing wrong with their body, they feel confident about themselves, that is one step I have taken in that direction.”

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.
