Miss India Fiji: Different talents on offer

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Update: 2:36PM WITH just two days left to crown her successor, reigning Miss India Fiji Sheryl Kumar said this year's contestants all had different talents to offer to be Fiji's ambassador to the world.

The 25-year-old said the girls had tremendously improved in terms of talent presentation and speech delivery.

"I have actually been with them right from the initial stages of the auditions until now and we have been conducting various workshops and training to groom the contestants and assist them to fine tune their walks, speech delivery and talent presentation," Miss Kumar said.

"A crown does not make a queen. It is her ability to build and grow as a person and as a strong woman and to be able to be an inspirational figure to the young girls out there."

Ms Kumar said Miss India Fiji should be someone who respected, understood and promoted the richness of the Indian and Fijian culture.

"Miss India Fiji is someone who stands true to this and with her charisma, character, and strength as an individual more so as a woman can become an inspiring role model. MIF is a personality that can reach and preach these values," she said.

Sheryl represented Fiji at the Miss India Worldwide pageant in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2012.

After a lapse of five years, organisers of Miss India Fiji had decided to revive the pageant and have started audition calls for local girls this year.

The Miss India Fiji finals will be at the Grand Pacific Hotel on September 15 with the winner going to New York to compete in Miss India World Wide from October.
