In my talk, I began by sincerely thanking all the volunteers, Mentors, Local Directors, Parents, State directors Mr. and Mrs. Miller and thanked my long-term pageant mentor Ms. Deloma.
83. Chief Guest at Miss Seattle pageant. I shared with the local titleholders the messages of "gratitude and hard work." I encouraged them to use their "year of service" for "greatest impact". To help directors. To Inspire new ladies to join the program. To Reach out to as many underserved communities as possible. For the past 8 years in pageantry, I was able to serve with over 100 nonprofits, only by consistently serving. Let us all continue being a blessing.
84. Interview with pageant interview account Hey Adam, who has over 45,000 subscribers. I shared with him the journey to Miss World, the story behind my Miss World dress I wore at finals. I also shared with him my way of thinking for Miss World. My mantra was to “be of love” and to “share my love”. The love I have for people, for BWAP, for my talent, for everyone there.

Thank you for your 5th HONORARY DISTINCTION for my service work, Miss World, Miss America representation, educational background and funds raised for charities. Big thank you to Senator Mona ji for nominating me. The resolution was read at the Washington state capitol, in Olympia.

They would regularly "drop off little curious, full of hope, desire for world change, Shree- off to shelters to volunteer, before she could drive".
For the past decade, my mother and I have kept, gathered and cherished every appreciation certificate, letter received from students, conventions leaders to nonprofit head. This led to the creation of my Beauty with a Purpose room.
As I walk in the room, each story reminds me that "every loving action makes a positive difference so let us Love without limits. I feel honored to be raised by my extraordinary parents who serve endlessly.
