More than $1 million dollars an hour was raised, which is unprecedented in anything I have been involved in.”

The MW team told me that the Beauty With A Purpose Gala was one of the most important events that Miss World has ever been a part of. The journey took me 31 hours and I only just made it to Singapore in time but I would not have missed this special night for anything! You never stop being Miss World! It’s been such an honour to be a part of today and it’s wonderful to know that hundreds of thousands of people will benefit as a result.”

The time of India. Yamaha Fascino Miss Diva Miss Universe India 2018 Nehal Chudasama is on cloud nine post her magnificent win at the pageant. The stunning lady now awaits a new challenge at the Miss Universe 2018 pageant. In an exclusive interview, the new crowned queen speaks about her recent success, her family and lots more…
You will be representing India at Miss Universe 2018 pageant how does that make you feel?
I feel very honoured on having got this opportunity but with this also comes a huge responsibility of representing India, our whole nation, at the most prestigious pageant. I am emotionally happy and nervous at the same time.
How important was it for you to win Yamaha Fascino Miss Diva 2018 – Miss Universe India?
It’s been a dream that I’ve been seeing for years, it had become a purpose of my life and I am a person who, when it comes to conquering something I desire, I leave no tables unturned. I chased and persevered whatever was important to me.
Some people mock the idea of pageants and deem them as disrespectful towards women. What is your take on that?
People who say or think as such, would’ve definitely not been a part of or followed pageantry. I feel proud to introduce them to the world of pageants which is a source of empowerment, positivity, self-love, humanity, encouragement and what not.
Is winning Miss Diva Universe 2018 and representing India at Miss Universe serving as a stepping stone to something greater in your life?
Being crowned as Miss Diva Universe 2018 has opened gates for infinite opportunities in my life in various fields. I will use it as a voice to encourage the Universe to be fit, to dream big, to work hard towards whatever career one chooses to walk in. For now, I am aiming to conquer the Miss Universe 2018 title.
How do your friends and family treat you after winning the crown?
My family especially my brother has always been my greatest support and he still keeps doing the same. My friends couldn’t be more happier with my fulfillment of dreams, as they have seen me work hard for it.
For the first time at the Miss Universe history, a Gujarati girl will be representing India. Do you have mixed emotions because of the responsibility and sheer happiness?
Gujarati women are believed to be conservative and more inclined towards their families which is embedded in our culture. I respect and abide by it, but going out of my comfort zone, being evolved into a modern and independent woman transformed me into being the best version of myself, one I never knew existed. I am instilled with happiness as to represent my country.
How do you put up with negativity? You consider it as constructive criticism or just someone trying to demean you?
Every individual has the freedom to give their opinions or have their own perception of things. I always take that as a constructive criticism because it helps in my own betterment. I am always focused towards my goals and hard work which keeps me positive, so I take negativity to my advantage.
You will start preparing for the Indian Civil Services Examination as soon as you complete the pageant run. Why and has this always been at the back of your mind?
I am a woman with a unique thought process, I never choose anything easy. I always wanted to be the one breaking stereotypes and stand as an example to the society. By representing myself as a model I serve a different purpose and as a police officer I serve another. I can serve the society either way.
Who would you say is your greatest inspiration in the pageant world?
I do not have one such inspiration. I believe every person has unique qualities that differentiates them from others. To name a few, I am inspired by Pia Wurtzbach’s determination towards her dreams as well as Lara Dutta’s eloquence inspires me to lengths.
What is one word that represents your personality and how are you going to use it as a weapon to win Miss Universe 2018? I am smart enough to understand the fact that there exists a place in the Universe which you own and nobody else can replace you. I am ‘unapologetically myself’, and by being one, I know I can win Miss Universe for my country.
You were raised by a single parent since you were 13, what would you say is your father’s contribution towards your pageant success? My dad has exceeded in life by playing a duo role, that of a Mother and a father. Raised by my father alone, I have been taught to be fearless, strong, and independent. These qualities that I’ve learned from him, made me reach my destination faster.
