Miss India Worldwide Shree Saini Punjab-born, honoured with World Peace Messenger
Abohar, December 31
Miss India Worldwide Shree Saini, who was born in Punjab, has been honoured with World Peace Messenger and Most Admired Global Indian Awards.
The awards were announced by the World Peace Diplomacy Organisation and presented at the two-day World Humanitarian Summit and Awards, 2019, that concluded at the Hollywood Banquet Hall in Los Angeles, US, last night.
Shree is looking forward to leading 100 families with a goal to fundraise for the Children Federation Foundation. “We will do our small part to provide 500 children with food and education for a year,” she said.
“I am thankful for the blessings from my parents Sanjay and Ekta Saini, my Abohar-based grandparents and mentors who guided me in my journey,” Shree said, maintaining that serving as the Miss India USA and Miss India Worldwide had been one of her life’s biggest blessings. “Now, being Miss World Washington, I am looking forward to competing for Miss World America and hopefully Miss World,” said Shree.
“My life has been full of emotional traumas and physical challenges. I survived facial burns, extreme bullying and a heart surgery for a pacemaker at the age 12. I even have one adult bully, who tests my kindness daily, but I respond with endless kindness. I was told that I could never dance again or have a normal face, but I chose resilience. I practiced dance for hours and kept on cleaning my facial wounds with ointment and gauges until my face healed,” she said.
Shree had the honour to study at some prestigious universities like Yale, Harvard and Stanford. She has given hundreds of presentations in over 80 cities and six countries. Her humble work has been recognised by Miss Universe Lara Dutta, Sushmita Sen, Miss World Yukta Mookhey, Manushi Chhillar and Preity Zinta. She feels honoured to have worked alongside three Miss USAs, Teen USA, Meenakshi Seshadri, Sonu Nigam, Konkona Sen Sharma, Tanisha Mukherjee, Hema Malini, Mimi Gates and Joel Osteen.
