Manya Singh, from Uttar Pradesh, daughter of an auto-rickshaw driver, has been chosen as VLCC Femina Miss India 2020 Runner-up.
“My blood, sweat, and tears have amalgamated into courage to pursue my dreams,” said Manya Singh.
Though Manasa Varanasi, an engineer from Telangana, has been crowned as VLCC Femina Miss India 2020, Manya Singh, has left her family and everyone else proud and in tears, as she was crowned runner-up of the pageant on Wednesday night. Manya Singh shared a life inspiring story of her with everyone else. Her success is the result of years of hard work and many sleepless nights.
Manya Singh, born in Kushinagar, in her Instagram post revealed that she had to spend many nights without food and sleep. She didn’t get the opportunity to attend the school and yearned for books. Manya’s mother had to mortgage whatever jewellery she had in order to pay the fees and ensure that Manya gets a degree. “All the clothes I had were hand-me-downs. I yearned for books, but luck wasn’t in my favour. Eventually, my parents mortgaged whatever little jewellery my mother had to ensure that I paid my exam fees in order to earn a degree,” Manya Shared.

Her post was reposted from the official Femina Miss India Instagram account where she shared her journey full of hurdles.
The post in which she shared her story was captioned as, “I’ve spent numerous nights without food and sleep. I’ve spent many afternoons walking for miles on end. My blood, sweat, and tears have amalgamated into courage to pursue my dreams. Being a rickshaw driver’s daughter, I never had the opportunity to attend school as I had to start working in my teens. All the clothes I had were hand-me-downs. I yearned for books, but luck wasn’t in my favour.
Eventually, my parents mortgaged whatever little jewellery my mother had to ensure that I paid my exam fees in order to earn a degree. My mother has suffered a lot to provide for me. At 14, I ran away from home. I somehow managed to complete my studies in the day, became a dishwasher in the evening and worked at a call centre at night. I’ve walked hours to reach places so I could save the rickshaw fare. I am here today at the VLCC Femina Miss India 2020 stage to uplift my father, my mother, and my young brother and to show the world that all is possible if you are committed to yourself and your dreams.”

According to Manya, her entry into the beauty pageant is to show the world that nothing is impossible if one is committed to their dreams and to uplift her family. She also added that she it was her mother, who has influenced her the most in her life. From her mother, she inherited the qualities of never giving up and working hard.
