Newly crowned Miss India Fiji, Sheryl Kumar is keen to promote Fiji further on the world stage.

The 20-year-old University of the South Pacific second year student who is a strong advocate of youth empowerment believes her country can be promoted in many ways.

"Now that I have been chosen as Miss India Fiji, my responsibility is to be a good ambassador of my country and promote it further globally," she said after the crowning in Suva last night.

"Fiji is more than just a holiday destination and as the country's representative to the Miss India Worldwide pageant , I will promote my country's culture and other unique features."

"Though Fiji appears to be a dot on the world map to some, my country has so much to offer and I will try to raise as much awareness possible in Malaysia."

"It is an honour to be selected as Miss Fiji and I will try to perform to the best of my ability and make my country and family proud," she quipped.

Kumar who comes from a family of two said her 17-year-old brother, Nigel has been her strength of support together with her parents.

"My parents and my little brother have always been on my side and I want to thank them for their support and guidance."

"I would also like to thank my sponsor Natasha Jan and the two wonderful ladies; Nazia and Aliyah who organised this wonderful event which gave all the contestants the confidence to come out in public and showcase their talents."

With USP currently on mid-semester break, Kumar plans to spend more with her family and friends.

She will represent Fiji in the 22nd Miss India  Worldwide pageant in Kuala Lumpur in March, 2013.
