Fiji gets new Indian beauty queenSeptember 12th, 2012 - 4:49 pm ICT by IANS
Suva (Fiji), Sep 12 (IANS) It was a dream come true for 20-year-old Sheryl Kumar, who was crowned Miss India Fiji 2012 at a glittering ceremony in Suva.
An emotional Sheryl, who pipped nine other contestants to win the title, said she never expected to be on stage and win a national pageant.
“My mind straightaway went to those days that weren’t my best. Every girl has her down days and I am no different. Then, I didn’t think I would make it through life, let alone take part and win the Miss India Pageant,” Sheryl was quoted as saying by Fiji Times.
“I am blessed to have come this far and I couldn’t have done it without my friends, my family and even those people that passed me on the road with a smile or a bula - they all deserve a mention in this win. They have played a part in building my confidence,” she added.
Sheryl is now gearing up for the Miss India Worldwide pageant to be held in Kuala Lumpur in March next year.
“The hardest journey begins now. I am honoured to represent Fiji on the world stage and I hope, like those winners before me, I do a worthy job in my reign,” said Sheryl.
Sheryl also won the Pure Fiji Beautiful Skin award at the event.
