Manushi Chhillar became popular worldwide as she won the prestigious Miss World title in 2017. Manushi who belongs to India brought back the crown after 17 long years. Earlier, India had won the title in 2000 when Priyanka Chopra was crowned. Unlike many others, instead of going for the movies or modeling assignments, Manushi is focussed on the social issues and helping women empowerment. Manushi Chhillar perfectly describes herself as a ‘dreamer and achiever’. The best thing about Manushi which makes her different from other beauty pageant winners is that she wants to give back the love and respect she received from society by doing some valuable social work.

Manushi Chhillar is not just a top model, she’s also a talented poet, a very good painter, and beautiful Kuchipudi dancer. Manushi aims to be a cardiac surgeon. She was a medical science student at the time she participated in the beauty pageant.

“I was always focused on my studies and wanted to be a doctor, but I would also dream to be at a beauty pageant at least once in life,” Manushi Chhillar

Manushi hails from a family of doctors. So, she isn’t just a pretty-pretty girl but also possesses intelligence. Owing to her relation to the medical field, Manushi Chillar has been appointed the brand ambassador for the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) the philanthropic organization that represents more than 100,000 physicians of Indian origin.

“I come from a family where people believe in education and they don’t really step out into any big entertainment related industry or beauty pageants. I am the first one from my family and friends to step into the world,”

One of  Manushi’s social issues based projects is Project Shakti which is an initiative to make rural Indian women financially independent and enable them to earn their livelihood. Through this project, Manushi has also started an awareness program on menstrual hygiene. Manushi has visited over 20 villages to support the cause. “The cause is close to my heart, and in my own way, I have managed to make a difference to the lives of about 5,000 women.” After winning the Miss World title, Manushi told IANS that she will always be fighting for this cause. “The poor menstrual management in our country and across the world has always bothered me as a person…That’s one cause that I will take forward with me,” she said.

One very heart touching statement of Manushi Chhillar which shows the beauty of her heart was during the Miss World final round where the judges asked her, “Which profession deserves the highest salary and why?” Manushi answered, “I think a mother is of the highest respect. I don’t think it’s just about cash but love and respect she gives to someone. She is the biggest inspiration in my life. A mother should get the highest salary and respect.” This answer not just won hearts but also the coveted Miss World title!

Manushi keeps motivating people to do their best in life and never let their dreams die. In one of her Insta stories, Manushi motivated people to chase their dreams. She posted in the story that her future too was uncertain a year ago, but her dedication and hard work made her what she is today. She motivated her fans to chase their dreams and set new goals for themselves. She also advised them to never forget their real roots.

Definitely, Manushi Chhillar is a youth icon who represents today’s young girls who possess both beauty and brains.  She is also rich in her heart as can be seen in her dedication to social works. We truly need more beauty queens like her to make this world a more beautiful place!
