Doctor, mother and now a pageant queen, Anupama Soni has done the country proud by snagging the Mrs Asia International title at the event held in Thailand.
Jaipur-based Soni had qualified as Mrs. India in August. The mother of two children, who also has two titles of Mrs. Rajasthan to her credit, said, "It was a wonderful journey with lots of new experiences, learning, meeting international contestants with a different culture, backgrounds, food habits with many differences. Still, we were alike as a woman, as a human. All had different stories to share but all were mothers, homemakers, career woman."
Further, she added, "We were welcomed by the governor of Rayong & director of tourism Thailand. We visited local areas and cities to have a look of religious beliefs, their art and culture food habits and etc. The journey was also that easy, the first day was a photo shoot and visit for local food.
The second day was the talent round where I got selected in top three. After presenting Chari and Kalbeliya dance forms. The entire audience was amazed by witnessing the dance performance and colorful costumes. That performance at talent round helped me a lot to gain more and more confidence to win this crown. Day by day we faced new rounds and challenges, the last 6th day was National Costume round. For me, it's a great honor and privilege to present my country on an International platform."
