Abohar, September 25

The organisers of Miss World America pageant have announced this year’s contestant list. Indian- American Shree Saini, who was born in Abohar, Punjab, is also vying for the title.

Shree is the chosen representative of Washington State. She is a survivor of a heart surgery, which she underwent at the age of 12. She is also a burns survivor.

A graduate from University of Washington, Saini has been a visiting student at Harvard, Stanford and Yale Universities. She has earned the “Best Pageant Titleholder” award and recognitions from the Secretary of State, Senate, Governor and the American Heart Association CEO.

“Serving and inspiring others is a responsibility for me. It is our duty that we shine with enthusiasm and serve others with love. That is “Beauty with a Purpose” for me,” Shree said. She had collapsed before the final night of the Miss World America 2019 and could not finish competing.

This year’s event will be held in a series of virtual web casts in combination with online submissions. All contestants would participate in real-time preliminary competitions and would receive camera time in front of a live audience and judges.
