India’s Aayushi Dholakia Creates History By Becoming First Asian To Win Miss Teen International 2019

Beating participants from around 22 countries, India’s Aayushi Dholakia created history by winning Miss Teen International 2019, a pageant which was held at the Kingdom of dreams, Gurugram. This is the first time in 27 years that an Asian has won the pageant.

Aayushi, a class 11th student from Vadodra, Gujarat is trained in Kathak Classical dance and is just 16 years old. She also won Best National Costume award and Best in Speech Award at the pageant.

For the finale question, Aayushi was asked: ‘Do you think the world would be a better place if we just had one world government and no separate countries?

‘I don’t think that the world will be a better place if we had a single government and no separate countries as all the countries are divided on their geographical area, people, their ideas and opinions. All the world and political leaders are well aware what is better for their countrymen and people. Being an Indian, I strongly believe in vasudhaiva kutumakkam, which means the world is one large family. So, irrespective of the different countries and government we all are a family and are bound by love and peace.’

Miss Teen International is an annual beauty pageant being held in India for teenage girls across the world aged between 14 and 19. The pageant is owned by Nikhil Anand, Indian businessman, founder and chairman of Glamanand group.

Miss Teen International was formed in 1993 under the ownership of Enrique González, head quartered at San Jose, Costa Rica. But the pageant franchisee was sold to Mr. Ananad in 2016.

Yessenia Garcia from Paraguay was the First Runner-Up, and Anicia Gaothusi from Botswana was the Second Runner-Up.

Apart from the three winners there were several other categories in which the other participants won….

Miss Teen Asia- Thu Phan from Vietnam Miss Teen Europe- Maria Luisa Piras from Italy Miss Teen Africa- Anicia Gaothusi from Botswana Miss Teen America- Alessandra Santos from Brazil.
