Indian beauty crowned Miss Universe 2021 in Israel

The 21-year-old actress-model from Punjab, India, outmatched her competitors in the final round after offering her advice to young women on “how to deal with the pressures they face today.”

“The biggest pressure the youth of today is facing, is to believe in themselves,” she said. “To know that you are unique makes you beautiful. Stop comparing yourselves with others and let’s talk about more important things that are happening worldwide.”

The pageant was held in the Red Sea resort town of Eilat late on Sunday night, despite many controversies, calls for boycott over the Israeli treatment of Palestinians, and the last-minute scare of the Omicron Covid-19 variant.

Most of the 80 contestants already arrived in Israel by the time the country shut its borders to foreigners, while others had to request permissions and undergo a mandatory quarantine.
