Mrs. K Upadhyay
- A Brief about yourself and how you describe your own Personality and Persona.
I am an optimistic person. Happy go lucky describes me perfectly. I am a very straight forward girl, who likes to take things in her stride in a level headed manner. Life is quite exciting to me as it has tons of opportunities and experiences to offer and I feel one should always make the right use of it. I am adventurous by nature for that I like to take up new challenges like this one. One thing I firmly believe in is that one should always strive towards individual betterment, in whichever form it may be. That is why I’m never tired of beginning where others left off.
- Your Achievements that makes you feel high.
Born & brought up in nuclear family taught me to value people. I always try to help people in every way I can and their smile and gratitude gives me immense pleasure and motivates me to keep doing it. I firmly believe that our prime purpose in this life is to help others. For me nothing is more important than empathy for another human being's suffering, we have to feel for one another if we're going to survive with dignity. I am part of Cairdeas Homeless Action Group Dublin we help people in need because nothing beats the joy of giving.
- Define the true beauty.
For me true Beauty is selfless soul that grows with compassion. It lies deep within, no amount of physical beauty will ever be as valuable as a beautiful heart.
- What makes a complete, healthy and happy family for you?
For me family isn't defined only by last names or by blood, its defined by commitment and love. it means showing up when they need you most, having each other's back. It means choosing to love each other despite knowing their flaws.
- What is your favorite Idea of Holidaying?
I am nature admirer I love to explore places full of nature's beauty. I always wanted to see Galapagos’ islands I heard so many exciting things about them. I believe that nature has a lot to offer all we need to do is to explore. If you go out with your family to the place you love its icing on the cake for me.
- Why you are participating in Mrs. India Earth ?
To test my limits, to tell myself that I still have that spark in me, to come out of my comfort zone, to make my son proud and the most important to help people in need, want to give something back to my country.It’s an honor to be a part of India's most prestigious and credible beauty pageant.
- What bothers you most about what is happening in the country today?
It is sad that some communities still discriminate against the education of the girl child. Girls in rural areas are still not getting the right of education they aren't even getting the right to be born, it agitates me to pain when I watch on the news that a father killed his unborn daughter without the consent of her mother, where are we heading with this? If I'd given a chance to do something about it, I won't let it go in vain.
- The Quote or saying that encourages you?
It’s by Thomas A. Edison “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try one more time”
- What is true â€œSportsmanshipâ€ for you?
I think sportsmanship is to know that this is the game, that we’re as good as our opponents and whether you win or lose you need to give your hundred percent.
- If you were selected as a Charity Ambassador what Value addition would you like to make for our Society and how?
If you're living in a society, it’s your duty to help others in every way you can. I believe that one should leave behind their footprints, rather than just exist! If I’d get the opportunity to be a charity ambassador, I’d like to do something for underprivileged girls who are neglected by their own parents and society, want to educate them and make them independent so that they can succeed. I also want to help acid attack victims in the best possible way I can.
