Anisha Safaya Mrs India Universe 2017

“My achievements are reflection of my dreams, My dreams encourage me to rise, To rise high even from the ashes, These ashes are my experiences, my self-taught lessons, Lessons that have turned me into a compassionate & conscious being and Compassion and consciousness are my wings that enable me to fly high” – Anisha Safaya Anisha Safaya has been crowned as Mrs India Universe 2017 just a month ago. Earlier, she acclaimed two of the most important sub titles in the world of beauty pageants, Mrs. Catwalk in Mrs. India Universe 2017 and in Mrs. India UK 2017. Anisha is highly thankful to the organisers of Mrs. India Universe 2017, Mr. Tusshar Dhaliwal & Mrs. Archana Tomer for providing a worldwide platform to married women like her & an opportunity to compete at an international level enabling them to re-live their passion and dreams.         A proud daughter, a wife, a friend and a dedicated colleague; Anisha’s story of success from a staunch banker as Vice President of one of the world’s leading investment banks to Mrs. India Universe 2017 has been a rollercoaster ride, yet she fought back and kept moving, head held high, making a place for herself.
