Shree Saini of Washington State, is the first Indian-American to win the crown of Miss World America 2021. Former Miss World Diana Hayden crowned her at the event, which was held at Miss World America headquarters in Los Angeles.
"I am happy and quite nervous. I can't express my feelings (in words). All the credit goes to my parents, especially my mother because of whose support I am here. Thank you Miss World America for this honour," she said in her statement.
She also took to her Instagram to share a long post after her win.
"Thank you God for blessing me, and allowing me to be of service as Miss World America 2021. I am the first American of Indian origin and first Asian to be crowned Miss World America 🇺🇸.With your affectionate support, I invite you all to be part of my service journey," she posted.
Miss World America is proud to announce that Shree Saini has been elected to serve as Miss World America 2021.
Shree also holds the prestigious position of "MWA National Beauty with a Purpose Ambassador”, a position she earned by working tirelessly to help those less fortunate and in need. Among her many accomplishments, her work has been recognized by UNICEF, Doctors without Borders, Susan G Komen, and many others.
"We are certain Shree will continue to immaculately embody Beauty With A Purpose, and no doubt will be successful in raising awareness and attention to the Miss World America mission. Stay tuned and follow the Miss World America 2021 journey!
"We would like to also take this opportunity to give our heartfelt gratitude to Alissa Anderegg, for her outstanding role as Miss World America 2020. Alissa has filled her one-year reign with incredible work in raising awareness for Alzheimer’s and related dementias. We wish Alissa all the success in her future," reads the America Miss World page.
Saini's life was not a bed of roses as she has had a permanent pacemaker since she was 12 and overcame a major car accident which left her with burns all over her face. But she rarely if ever lets any of that hold her back or define her, according to news agency ANI.
