After winning the Mrs Bharat GA 2019 title and Mrs Congeniality in September at Mountain View High School, Stone Mountain (metro Atlanta), Anusmita Bardhan Sur became the first runner-up at the Mrs. Bharat USA 2019 pageant in Iselin, New Jersey. There, in three rounds, with 15 judges, she secured the 1st Runner-up spot on December 1. She is a mom of two kids, assistant director of a school, and is involved in dancing, acting, working on a short film, and choreographing.
(Right) Suporna (Trisha) Choudhuri (23) won Miss India GA 2019 in IACA’s state-level pageant and, over the course of a night marked by sisterhood and solidarity, received four other titles (Best Personality, Most Talented, Miss Photogenic, and Best Smile). Her goals include becoming a neurologist, working in conjunction with the United Nations using her Bachelor’s degree in International Relations, and improving literacy for disenfranchised women and children in developing nations (particularly in South Asia). She was unable to attend the Miss India USA nationals due to a scheduling conflict.
The passion, compassion, dedication, determination, and hard work of these two, all delivered with a generous dose of style, led to their achievements. The goal of these pageants is to empower contestants. The message is to balance inside and outside beauty with confidence to inspire others. Women and men compete to “Wear a crown in the heart and on the head, but not in the head.”
