Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], Mar. 31 (ANI): Contestants of Miss Ability 2018, a beauty pageant for the differently-abled, participated in a pre-competition photoshoot here on Friday.
"During the photo shoot, we helped the participants pose, apart from doing their hair and makeup. We want to encourage them to be a part of the modeling industry. I feel disability is not a physical thing, but completely related to mindset," Mehek Murthy, business development manager of Anoo's told ANI.
Meanwhile, Kiranmayee, a contestant, expressed her confidence in the community in reaching greater heights in the days to come.
"From my childhood, I have been facing many struggles because of this disability. However, that did not stop me from completing my education. If I get a chance, I wish to educate the differently-abled and give them all facilities with my own money," she said.
On a related note, the beauty pageant will be held on April 1. (ANI)
