Punjab-born Indian-American Shree Saini compete in Miss World America pageant
Punjab-born Indian-American Shree Saini, who was crowned Miss India Worldwide 2018 and Miss India USA 2017, has been selected to compete in Miss World America pageant to be organised at Hotel New Orleans, Las Vegas, on October 12.
Marisa Butler of Maine will crown her successor at the event. All 50 states and the District of Columbia will compete for the crown. The winner will represent the United States at Miss World 2019 in London. Shree, having roots in Abohar, said it was her dream to compete for a Miss World America title.
Saini is a heart patient, who was told by the doctors that she could never dance after a pacemaker surgery at the age of 12, few years after the family shifted from Ludhiana to the US. Shree said, “I am fortunate to be selected as Miss World Washington to compete for Miss World America title, preliminary to the Miss World competition. I made to Top 5 Talent for Miss World America. When I was five, I told my preschool class teacher Mamta Dasaur in Ludhiana that I wanted to be Miss World and today with great humility I am looking to serve as Miss World America.”
