All that matters is how you conduct yourself in public and what your values and beliefs are. I believe being confident in what I do makes me stand out of other contestants.
3. What do you think is the biggest problem facing young people today?
Answer: I think that the biggest problem young people are facing today is depression, social media addictions, drug, alcohol and academic problem. With a fear of expressing themselves in front of parents, friends or mentors so that they don’t get judged and taking a rather wrong way is leading to bigger problems that youth are proactively facing today.
4. Tell us about yourself.
Answer: I’m Keerthana from Hyderabad. I’m a classical and western dancer and currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree. From 8th standard I got interest in modelling and slowly it became my passion. I believe that be confident where you are and according to me style is the way to say who you are without having to speak.
5. Why did you decide to compete in this pageant?
Answer: The number one of a million reasons to enter this beauty pageant is to build self-confidence. Pageants promote goal setting and will truly inspire me to search my soul, think about the future and make a plan on how to get there. Sometimes, the pageant, itself, is a stepping-stone to achieving those goals.
