What made you apply for Mrs India Worldwide Australia 2017?
I joined this pageant to have a sense of achievement and fulfilment. I have always wanted to be a part of the entertainment and fashion world but was busy with other things and this time of the year when I came to know that I achieved one title as a Mrs India Australia, it was just unbelievable for me to pack for NYC and I thought firstly no it’s not for me but Raj Suri said one thing ‘Urvi it’s never late to live your own life and after this you never gonna regret after 10 years so this is the time and go for it.’ Some people may think that time, effort and endless hours of training maybe one’s sacrifices in joining pageants. For me, these are necessary investments one must be able to make and forego to be able to triumph contests such as this. Besides, the colourful experiences and unforgettable memories, confidence and friends I have gained through the competition are worth more than everything that I had to give up or sacrifice.
How did you feel officially representing Australia in USA for the Mrs India Worldwide?
It’s a big proud moment to represent my country Australia and beginning of many such incredible moments. Being an Aussie I must say we are a free country where women have equal rights! I consider myself lucky to be a part of this country and I can be anything I want to be! The opportunities we have in this country are endless! I was here to live the life of my unstoppable dreams and gained an unrealistic experience was hugely proud to represent Australia.
How was the experience in USA?
Absolutely amazing !! To explore from my point of view it is decent experience. I have spent quality time with my fellow contestants, mentors and fabulous trainers. Likewise, the excitement I may experience and memories I make here are beyond measure in worth for widening my social horizon and understanding of people.I have enjoyed memorable moments in USA and its none the less but lifetime precious experience.
Indeed it is long journey from Australia, obviously firstly a bit nervous but I’ve already selected for a worldwide peagent that was extraordinary moment anyone can wait for so I was very excited and fresh when I landed to NY.
Being alone is quite difficult to cope in different country as I was first time in my life in USA but yes I feel enjoyed and welcomed by all the colleagues, mentors and even chairman specially Mrs. Neelam Saran and Juhi. The girls you compete with become your family, regardless of all the stereotyping about catty girl fights and fake personalities. I am happy to say that all the girls I’ve competed with are still my friends, they all were very helpful. Jyotsna Trived, Nishana, Silpa, Radha and Chaitali – Thank You!
What support you got from Australian personal branding mentor Raj Suri?
Raj Suri build confidence to achieve my dreams and given me strength. He has provided me detail information about training and whole event that gave me an idea for competition. I would like to include that if Raj would have not give me support, I would be not at worldwide competition. So in my words, Raj is an outstanding mentor for those who want to accomplish individual dream.
Miss India Australia 2017, Aarzu Singh, was also in USA representing Australia in the “Miss” category, how was it spending time with another fellow Aussie talent?
Of course, it is great to have accompany from the member who is from your country. You have lot common things to share and Aarzu is from Australia too so we have enjoyed beautiful quality time together. She was like family member for me, when not even a single friend or family member was not there with me then I always seems like I knew her.
How as your training in USA, what was involved?
I would be lying if I said I didn’t do anything for training because it was extreme hard work involved in the training, you need to give lot of hours to walk on ramp. That’s what was involved in USA. You get trained by very professional manner with each and every step on the stage you gonna be representing, was involved.
Because (this pageant) literally changed who I am, my vision, and everything I once was. It taught me so much about myself, and I learned so much about other key things in life from, poise, grace, building self-confidence, networking, and much more. This best training from one of the best choreographer #Sandeep Soparrkar and super model #Jessie Randhava.
Although, I may have not won but each and every girl who was involved in the training and this event they all are winner because of training and learning they’ve got and also We all walked away with much more than a crown and title.
Your most memorable moments of your 1 week trip?
Actually it’s each and every moments which I have enjoyed and delighted during this competition. But one of them is always your favourite when you do this kind of journey so as mine is training. I have been trained from professional Bollywood choreographer Sandeep and Jessie. They are passionate, hard working and result driven so they bring the best out of me. There are many things which I have to learn but I have learned a lot from them. I am thankful to them because what I performed in pageant because of their training which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Why would you recommend other married women in Australia to particpate in Mrs India Worldwide Australia?
Obviously it was a huge and difficult decision to make for any married woman to participate at worldwide competition.. You need a big courage and it was a challenge that I also accepted However Raj gave me confidence and showed me the path that can lead me to the directions where I want to be. So there will be no obstacles for those who will go from Australia next year. Apart from this, this pageant teaches many experiences which you will not learn in routine. Therefore, it is great platform to achieve many things at same time regardless winning the competition or not..
There are so many things you learn not only about yourself, but also about communication skills, leadership, interviews, and poise.
Pageantry is a doorway for those who want to be on stage, give back, and of course learn more about themselves. I never saw pageantry as a competition, I always looked at it as a learning experience.
My recommendation for those who want to go for next year is positive. Just go for it and leave rest for the new future for yourself after this pageant when you will live sparkly like a star with your family members and friends.
What is next for Dr. Urvi Trivedi Rao in this journey?
My next step is to get more training from Raj, I know it’s a lot of hard work but want to be absolutely perfect and part of this industry.
I’ve done lot of study, I’m a homeopathic doctor from India, I’ve done graphic design and multimedia course from Australia plus I’ve completed hospitality management and currently doing my MBA from Australia so I think it’s enough and now it’s time to achieve more from Raj’s training. Looking forward to working with Raj.
