With the reigning Miss Earth titleholder coming from India, Hasleen Kaur has a most challenging work cut out for her. Although not an impossible assignment to win the crown for a second consecutive year, she has to consistently excel and rise above the field of stunning contenders for 2011.
Having worked as an Elite fashion model, on top of appearing in a Bollywood film, will help Hasleen in projecting a personal style that should make her head-turning and engaging while in Manila. And while her open support for LGBT rights has no direct correlation with the primary objectives of Miss Earth, it will immensely endear her to a lot of pageant fans. What will bring her close to the title’s cause is her involvement with Nav Jyoti, a NGO headed by Dr. Kiran Bedi, dedicated for dealing with environmental issues.
Hasleen is 100% ready for the competition. If she eventually wins the title of Miss Earth 2011, then a new record will be set for the decade-old contest and propel India back to the top tier of powerhouse performances in international beauty pageants. 😉
