Ludhiana born Indian-American Shree Saini has been crowned Miss India Worldwide 2018 at a pageant held in the Fords City of New Jersey, US.
Sakshi Sinha from Australia and Anusha Sareen from United Kingdom were announced first and second runners-up.
22-year-old Shree, who about six years ago was told by the doctors that she would never be able to dance after setting up a pacemaker inside her heart at the age of 12, said one should never give up.
“I truly believe your legacy is defined by how you make others feel and the positive difference you make in your lifetime,” said Shree. Shree started her non-profit organisation, when she was just 15.
Shree said it was her dream to compete for a world title. She started preparing for it when she was in elementary school.
Indian-origin girls from as many as 17 countries participated in this annual beauty pageant.
Mandeep Kaur Sandhu, who hails from Haryana, was crowned Mrs India Worldwide 2018. Mandeep is a mother of a boy. She lost her husband in a road accident in the first year of her marriage.
She decided to stay single to show that she can raise a child alone being a widow. Jeya Priya Pandian from Malaysia and Kavita Malhotra Pattani from USA were declared the first and second runners-up.
