Do you remember Pankhuri Gidwani? The breath-taking beauty who we laid eyes on at the Femina Miss India Beauty Pageant 2016? Of course, you do! She went on to become the second runner’s up in the contest and won all our hearts, with the smile that speaks volumes.
Pankhuri was 18 when she participated in the contest and had to miss her 12th Board Exams in 2016. She gave her ICSE exams this year from La Martiniere Girls College, Lucknow and frigging nailed it with 97.25%. Here’s is what she wrote in her Facebook post.
[box type=”success” align=”” class=”” width=””]97.25 it is! So there is something I would like all my friends and followers to know ?I had missed my board examinations for participating in Miss India (at 18) and after winning Miss India 2nd Runners Up. I had to train for Miss Grand International and received the 25th position out of 80 countries.After coming back from the pageant, I battled a number of hard situations, one of them was getting adjusted to studying again after a year of glamour I put my all into it, and this is the result I came forth with ?So all the people out there who think that something they want is impossible to accomplish, whether it is academics, your dreams or the love you want, you can achieve it all, just have the grit, determination and a true heart to pursue it all.[/box]
Isn’t she amazing? Like she said, nothing is impossible to achieve in this world, if you give it your everything.
This is a striking example for little girls who think that there is only one thing that they can do. You can have it all, the best of both worlds. It takes a lot of effort, but it is not impossible.Thank you Pankhuri, for not just preaching us, but leading us by example!
This also make us understand not the value of marks, but the value of education.
