Mumbai, Mar 31 (UNI) Competing against 27 candidates from all over the country for the coveted ''Femina Miss India 2008'' title, 20-year-old Sangeeta Bora, a petite beauty from Assam, is determined to achieve her dreams.
With a degree in Journalism, Sangeeta is pursuing a full-time modelling career in Delhi after winning the ''Miss Luit'' title in the North East in 2006.
''Miss India contest is a excellent platform for all the girls as it is a national level competition and is also recognised internationally. The grooming we get here is simply the best in the world,'' Sangeeta said.
While talking about being one of only two contestants from the North East, Sangeeta told UNI that every region in the country was different, and the image of North East being culturally aloof was not entirely accurate. ''There might be a little difficulty in adjusting to a new environment initially, and people from North East are more westernised in attitude,'' she said.
''There are many beautiful young girls in the North East and they should realise that it takes a lot of hard work and determination to participate in the fashion and modelling world. They should remember failure is not final,'' she said.
