herself a beauty queen when she emerged as the first runner-up in Mrs. India Worldwide Malaysia 2018 reminded Malaysians to recognise that there is great potential within each differently-abled woman.
“This platform endeavours to empower these women, fostering an environment where they can recognise and attain their full potential, ensuring the fulfilment of their rights. These finalists shared with me deeply moving sentiments, expressing how touched they were by this opportunity. For many, it was the first time someone had extended a hand to showcase their skills, and some were even in tears, grateful for the opportunity to finally reveal their true selves. Their emotional responses have touched my heart and have made my efforts truly worthwhile.”
