I know that when I will be standing on the stage during a national or international pageant, I will always be more fortunate to have TGPC family support and guidance.
TGPC: What made you participate in the contest?
Adline: My roommate Priyanka Bhatt told me about the Miss TGPC pageant. I am still a big fan of Priyanka Kumari and Shraddha Shashidhar. They were very unique is their respective pageants, and Miss TGPC being the first pageant to discover these talents, I had a blind faith in Miss TGPC.
TGPC. What is one thing that you absolutely love about yourself and why?
Adline: Whenever I am given a task no matter how great or humble, I put my everything and try to the best in it! I can adapt really fast and don’t hesitate to try something new.
TGPC: What is one thing that would want to change about yourself and why?
Adline: I think no matter how perfect a person is, there will always be room for improvement, one should never seize the opportunity to learn. I feel I can never say no to someone and end up with a lot of things in my platter, so now I always remind myself to prioritize and that help me work effectively.
TGPC: Has getting this title of ‘Miss TGPC’ influenced you and your life in any way? If yes, how?
Adline: Winning Miss TGPC has in a way put me in the spotlight where many have noticed me and provided me with opportunities. The influence is rather humbling and I am more aware of my strengths and weaknesses.
TGPC: We heard there was an interesting story behind your finale evening gown on why you specifically wore it. Would you like to share us that?
Adline: I wasn’t supposed to wear that dress initially as I had another black long tail dress but that didn’t work out as it was getting stuck to wooden ramp. This dress which I wore to finale is 18 years old, it’s my mom’s dress which she wore on my first birthday. I got this to finale as my lucky charm but ended up wearing it for the said reason. My Mother was so delighted I wore that dress. I literally turned out to be my lucky charm.

Adline: I believe I am a team leader by person who believes that it is indispensable to serve first as team player and lead by example rather by authority.

Adline: Well at the age of 10 I was very futuristic and would plan for 10-12 years in advance, so I would like to tell my little self to live in the present and enjoy it to the fullest because no one except god knows about our future, so just put your heart into your work and have blind faith in God.
TGPC: What are the qualities you believe make or break the deal for you in terms of friendship and beyond.
