Harnaaz Sandhu made the headlines recently after she was crowned Miss Universe 2021. The Chandigarh-based model has also won several beauty contests like Miss Diva 2021, Femina Miss India Punjab 2019. Notably, she was also among the top 12 in Femina Miss India 2019.
Sandhu has been trending on social media after she was crowned Miss Universe 2021. She has brought back the crown to India over 2 decades after Lara Dutta clinched the pageant in 2000. Meanwhile, a video of Sandhu during the final question-and-answer round went viral on social media.
She was asked what advice she would give to young women on how to tackle the pressure they face today. Meanwhile, she had a perfect answer to the question that triggered many users share the video on Twitter and other social media.
Meanwhile, Industrialist Anand Mahindra took note of the beauty queen’s words of wisdom. He shared the video saying, “No better way to start the week than hearing this”.
“Well, I think the biggest pressure the youth of today is facing is to believe in themselves. To know that you are unique and that’s what makes you beautiful, stop comparing yourselves with others, and let’s talk about more important things that’s happening worldwide.
“I think this is what you need to understand. Come out, speak for yourself, because you are the leader of your life. You are the voice of your own life. I believe in myself and that’s why I’m standing here today. Thank you,” said Sandhu.
Meanwhile, Harvey was later slammed online for asking Sandhu to do animal impersonations on the stage rather than focusing on her accomplishments. Harvey said, “I hear you do some pretty good animal impersonations. Let’s hear your best one.” In reply, Sandhu said: “Oh my god, Steve, I was not expecting to do this on the world stage.” Needless to say, the Miss Universe 2021 managed a few meows before clinching the crown.
