Akshata conquered the stage and won hearts with her charm, endurance and beauty. From a very young age, Akshata had a range of diverse interests that included reading, music and dreamy skies. Growing up with a reserved nature, she completed her Masters in Science from MGM University, Navi Mumbai. “The pandemic-imposed lockdown impacted me badly. My self-esteem and confidence were at an all-time low. I began under-rating myself. And with the ushering of the new year, I resolved to bounce back and the first step was to push myself from being fat to getting fit. In this journey, I lost a good 13 kgs and that became the turning point in my life. This beauty pageant opportunity came to me and I decided to give it my best,” said Akshata.
She feels that the core of beauty is simplicity and now she has set out on her journey to inspire others. A girl who firmly believes in her motto – ‘Gratitude is the best attitude’ definitely deserves every bit of this success.
