Miss Teen Diva held its finale recently crowning four gorgeous young ladies at the end of the event. These four ladies took home the titles of Miss Teen Grand India, Miss Teen World India, Miss Teen Universe India and Miss Teen International India.

The title of Miss Teen Universe India was won by 18-year-old Trishna Ray. Not many know that around 16 days before the finale of Miss Teen Diva, Trishna met with an accident, injuring her leg. The doctors asked her to be on bed rest for at least a week, but she refused to give up her preparation for the pageant. Her accident could not stop her from competing.

Despite having injuries, Trishna won not one but four subtitles in this year's competition, namely, Best In Ramp Walk, Beauty With Brains, Best In Speech, Miss Teen India East. It is commendable how with an injured leg, she managed to bag the Miss Ramp Walk title.

Talking to Prateek Sur, Trishna Roy talks about being one of the four winners of the Miss Teen Diva. When asked about how she prepared for this win and what this win means to her, she couldn’t stop herself and burst out with emotions.

“Miss Teen Diva was a second chance, a second opportunity that appeared in my life. I hadn't won a pageant before and I was at India's biggest teen pageant. Hence, I knew I had to leave no stone unturned. From handling my college 9-5 to coming back home, working out to lose weight and practising my walk and polishing my speaking skills was not an easy task. I'm so grateful for having the right support system by the organisation that kept me strong every time I had a small piece of me giving up,” she says.

She goes on to add, “Winning this title is not the end for me. It is a starting point of another journey where I make my parents, my organisation and my country proud. It is not just a crown but a responsibility and I'm ready to work harder than I did before to make my nation and its people proud.”

Given her remarkable performance, she made it into the final round where she was asked – ‘What qualities in you make you worthy of representing India internationally?’

Her response to this was what won her the trophy.

She said, "I have been brought up in an army background that has raised me to believe that to make our nation proud should be our first priority. Seeing my father working and making his nation proud has inspired me and I want to do the same in whichever way I can possibly. Hence, I have the confidence, determination, the ambition to make my country proud which makes me a good candidate to represent my country internationally.”
