Ritika Khatnani, who was topped LIVA Miss Diva Supranational 2021, says being a part of the leisure trade was her lifelong dream.

Introduced up by a single mom who’s a marriage planner, Khatnani stated she goals to pursue appearing in future.
“Showbiz has been my final purpose. My ardour, curiosity and love lies in appearing. Regardless that pageantry was at all times given a thought, it was my mom who pushed me ahead to embark on the planet of pageants.
“Her dreams are my dreams. She motivated me to give it a shot and I believe it was all worth it now. My driving force, confidant, my mother gave me this opportunity, she’s given me the wings to fly,” Khatnani informed PTI.
For Khatnani, presently pursuing her bachelor’s diploma in mass media and communication from Mumbai’s Jai Hind School, her unshakable bond together with her household was her energy.
“My mother, grandmother and brother are my pillars of strength. Celebrating every moment or going through the worst all together has made us even tighter… My family is what keeps me grounded, their teachings, ethics and principles carved me into this unstoppable woman,” she added.
Profitable the title of LIVA Miss Diva Supranational, Khatnani stated, means “everything” to her.
Having been labelled as “not good enough” for the longest time, this pageant has showcased her energy to the world, she believes.
“This is all I’ve ever wanted. It’s my gateway to the world, to show the power I hold. A representation of myself to show every incredible individual the magic of a 19 year old… I had to deal with my own inner inhibitions, insecurities towards my path of journey.”
She is going to now be India’s face on the worldwide Miss Supranational 2021 competitors, the place the nation has received twice with Asha Bhat in 2014 and Srinidhi Shetty in 2016.
