Vanya Mishra (born 27 February 1992, Jalandhar, Punjab, India) - Miss India World 2012.
Vanya talking about herself:
"I’m 20 years old and I am from the beautiful country of India. As a nation, India is the largest democracy in the world and has a diverse culture with multiple languages, religions, traditions all living harmoniously under one umbrella which is evident from the fact that there is so much unity in such diversity.
I am currently a 3rd year electrical engineering student.
Being brought up by my mother, a single parent, she has inculcated in me lot of sensibility from a very young age. My father was serving as a major in the Indian army but unfortunately passed away when I was just 2 years old.
I enjoy dance as an art form of expression and enjoy dances like Indian classical, salsa, bollywood, and freestyle.
As a young girl growing up, I was influence by icons who I idolised, the likes of Miss World 1994 Ashwariya Rai and upon turning 18 this lead me to pledge to donate my eyes.
Being an academic and extremely passionate about higher education I am keen to pursue a degree in Masters of Business Administration once I finish my graduation.
Bollywood has always been a dream, and yes once I finish my graduation and if the timing and the offers from the film industry are right, I will contemplate a career in Bollywood.
Hailing from a defence background, I would like to be the proud title holder of Miss World to make my country proud and be a great ambassador for India, as my father followed the credo of ‘Service before Self’, and it is this credo that propels and motivates me as I embark upon this extraordinary journey in the pursuit and realization of my dreams".
