GANGTOK | September 5, 2018:
A 14-year-old girl from Sikkim, Driysha Chettri has been crowned as Miss Teen Bharat and Miss Teen Himalayan International 2018, during a beauty pageant's grand finale which was held at Delhi on August 31.
Driysha hails from Marchak, Ranipool but is presently staying at Daragaon. She thanked her father B.K. Chettri, a taxi driver by profession and mother Kunta Chettri for their total support.
She is pursuing her studies in Bahai School, Daragaon, Tadong. Through social media, she had applied for the beauty pageant and was aptly supported by her parents and school teachers and principal.
Driysha will also be representing India in the next international beauty pageant in Thailand. She told the media that she has also been selected for a Bollywood movie which is to be shot next year.
Expressing her happiness, Driysha said, "I am extremely happy and proud about winning this pageant. At first, when I saw my competitors I had a feeling that I would be knocked out in the first round as they were really talented. But then I built up my confidence and strength and finally, I conquered it".
She idolizes Miss World Manushree Chillar and dreams of bringing Miss World crown to Sikkim in future.
She loves dancing and aims to become an air hostess in future. But if I get better opportunities in the modeling field then I am ready to switch my career option, she said.
"Balancing between studies and modeling would be challenging but I will try to give equal importance to both", Drishya added.
She thanked her parents for their support and also her school principal and teachers for being their support.
Her mother Kunta Chettri also expressed her happiness. She said, "I am extremely proud and happy to see my child's victory. I feel that being a parent we should all help our children follow their dreams and support them. We should mold them into becoming what they chose to become".
