Deepshikha Sharma, 23, 5"11', Miss India Multinational 2018, is a role model for young women in Jammu and Kashmir. An engineer by training, Deepshikha pursued her modelling dreams despite not receiving support from her family initially.

As she embarks on her next chapter, she talks to Anita Aikara/Rediff.com about losing 20 kilos in a month-and-a-half, staying strong despite resistance from her family and explains why she wants to win the upcoming Miss Multinational title. Read the interview here.
