“I want to contribute towards the wholistic health of our people – both mental and physical. My long term goal is to open care centers for people suffering from terminal diseases and who do not have any family to take care of them. This will be a tribute to my grandmother whom we lost in 2011 to cancer. I miss her terribly. She was a beautiful soul”
Next few months, Milan would be preparing to represent her state Washington in Miss India USA to be held in NewYork in Feb next year. Let’s wish her goodluck!
The Washington State Pageant is conducted by Ravishing Women – a non profit 501c(3) organization working with mission to motivate, inspire, appreciate & empower women & girls. Founder by current President Menka Soni in 2013, ravishing women has started a revolution to use pageant as a platform to let women have status neutral designation and be identified with their own talent, intellect, beauty & accomplishments. Their pageant is free from elimination criteria of “Never Married & Never Had a Child”. Every contestant will be evaluated based on their skills, talent and capabilities rather than their marital status.
We wish Milanpreet all the very best for her future career interests.
