On being asked how does she feel on being crowned as the winner of the 6th edition, she replied, ”So finally now the feeling has sunk in. I feel on the top of the world already. During the crowning, when I got to know that I’m the winner, I was full of mixed emotions. I wanted to cry and I wanted to smile. Its an honour and a proud moment for me, my family and my friends. Winning TGPC’s Miss India Season-6 is the best thing that has happened to me till now. It wouldn’t have been possible without the help and support of my parents and friends throughout the journey. I want to thank all my TGPC mentors for the constant guidance and support. I feel out of words when it comes to show my gratitude towards TGPC. It has been a life changing experience for me. The journey has just begun. I’ll continue to keep growing and never stop working hard to achieve my dreams.”
We wish Rachel all the best for her journey in future national pageants and hope to see her making us proud as our past winners have done.
