Miss World 2017: Manushi Chhillar ends India's 17-year-long wait
21-year-old Manushi Chhillar, the Miss World 2017, has been bagging beauty titles in the past one year even while pursuing her course in medicine in an all-girls medical college in Haryana's Sonepat district.
Priyanka Chopra was the last winner from India in 2000.
Miss Mexico Andrea Meza was announced the first runner up, while Miss England Stephanie Hill was declared the second runner up at an event held at Sanya City Area.
108 contestants from various countries contested at the pageant.
Manushi, whose family belongs to Haryana and lives in New Delhi, is pursuing her MBBS degree from the Bhagat Phool Singh Government Medical College for Women in Khanpur Kalan village in Sonepat.
Born in Rohtak town on May 14, 1997, Manushi studied in St Thomas School in New Delhi. Good in her studies, she scored 96% marks in her Class 12 exams.
Chhillar looked emotional as the crown was placed on her head by Miss World 2016 winner Puerto Rico's Stephanie Del Valle.
A gifted poet, painter and Kuchipudi dancer, Masushi wants to be a cardiac surgeon and has been associated in a project for menstrual hygiene among women.
After winning the Miss India title, Manushi took a break from her medical studies for one year to pursue her love for beauty pageants. After fulfilling her commitments to the present titles that she is holding, Manushi plans to get back to her studies and complete her MBBS degree.
Manushi has been associated with 'Project Shakti' campaign, initiated by her to make women and girls more aware about menstural hygiene, even before she ventured into the beauty pageants scene.
