An aspiring actress Aarya (18), said, ''It has been my childhood dream to see myself on the silver screen and work in films and TV.'' Her hobbies include exploring new places, cooking and debating, she said.
Saumya Sharma, a second-year premedical student at the University of Virginia, was declared first runner up and Sanjana Chekuri of New Jersey was the second runner up.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the pageant which is the longest running Indian pageant outside of India. It was started by New York-based Indian- Americans Dharmatma and Neelam Saran under the banner of Worldwide Pageants.
