I am excited to return to the place where my journey began in 2016. I can understand how the candidates must be feeling as I went through the same phase during my year (2016) when I was competing at the very same pageant. That feeling is really difficult to express in words. I would like to wish them all, a very best of luck. All the best guys; always believe in yourself and give your best. Eagerly waiting to meet you guys soon.”
