NEW YORK – Punjab-born Shree Saini will be the first Indo-American to represent America at Miss World contest. She was yesterday elected Miss World America 2021.
Her maternal grandparents Vijay Luxmi, a retired school teacher, and TR Sachdeva, a progressive farmer in Abohar, said “a dream has come true. We are proud of her”.
Shree Saini’s Miss World America 2021 Crowning Ceremony was held at Los Angeles. She was crowned by Diana Hayden, Miss World 2017, and Tanya Memme, Miss World Canada 2013.
Shree, who is currently Miss World America Washington, also holds the prestigious position of “MWA National Beauty with a Purpose Ambassador”, a position she earned by working tirelessly to help those less fortunate and in need. Her work has been recognised by UNICEF, Doctors without Borders, Susan G Komen, and many others.
The pageant organisers said, “We are certain Shree will continue to immaculately embody ‘Beauty with a Purpose’, and no doubt will be successful in raising awareness and attention to the Miss World America mission. Stay tuned and follow the Miss World America 2021 journey!”
“We would like to also take this opportunity to give our heartfelt gratitude to Alissa Anderegg for her outstanding role as Miss World America 2020. Alissa has filled her one-year reign with incredible work in raising awareness for Alzheimer’s and related dementias,” the organisers added.
