I understand that a lot of women hesitate in pursuing their dreams. Either due to the baggage that they carry or lack of faith. I hope my journey inspires and encourages them to have aspirations, break the chains and work towards accomplishing their dreams."
"'Miss Super Talent of the World' is a title that is meant to recognise the journey of women, and what they have grown into now as a personality. Over the years, we have been able to identify some really inspiring personalities that have justified the recognition by not stopping but moving ahead, and pursuing more ambitions. We are glad that we have been able to make a difference in the world, and we shall continue doing so. We certainly do not expect any less from our new 'Miss Super Talent of the World' Rachel Gupta, who has come a long way and stands distinguished today with us," said Thomas Zilliacus, Chairman, Miss Supertalent of the World.
"We at She Is India are overjoyed that Rachel Gupta has reclaimed the title of Miss Super Talent of the World after nearly a decade. This is a golden opportunity for us to let Rachel pave the way for young girls of her age, to inspire them, and show them that no dream is too big; they can achieve anything they want if they strive for it. This is also Rachel's chance to become the unheard voice of girls suffering silently. Domestic violence in India is not limited to spousal abuse; it also affects the children of abusive families. Similarly, physical abuse is not the only type of abuse. Abuse manifests in myriad ways. She Is India will use this prospect to let Rachel be the voice and raise awareness with the hashtag #itsnotoktobeok. We firmly believe women are brave, bold, and beautiful on the inside and out. Their power is within them, and it is time for every woman to recognise their strength, potential, and value," said Richa Singh, Founder, She Is India organisation

Founded by Richa Singh, She Is India is a platform for every Indian woman who strives to or aims to let the world see them beyond societal tags. Women are the very foundation of our human race. For thousands of years, across hundreds of cultures and amongst numerous beliefs, men have revered and worshipped women; whether in the form of Mother Nature, Durga, Kali or Shakti in Hindu mythology or in the form of Athena, the goddess of war from Greek mythology or the mighty Amazonian Warrior Women. Cultures have woven legends around women and poets have inked pages in their praises. Every Indian has grown up reciting khub ladi mardani who toh Jhansi waali rani thi in reverence of Rani Lakshmi Bai, the warrior queen of Jhansi.
While societies have put such powerful women on pedestals, somewhere down the line, they forgot to extend the same respect to women in their everyday life. For centuries, the common woman has had to fight for their basic rights; be it their right to education or their right to vote or even the very basic right to stay alive. Domestic violence is another battlefield that women have been and still are fighting every day, silently, invisible.
Tapping into the theme of Women's Empowerment against Domestic Violence, She Is India, therefore, provides Indian women with an opportunity to bring out the best of themselves by enabling them a platform to voice their opinions and break those chains of taboos, stereotypes and glass ceilings. As women's representation matters, the platform's motto is "She indeed js India," and takes bold steps to facilitate every Indian woman a chance to be the change they want to see in the world.
