“My achievements are reflection of my dreams,
My dreams encourage me to rise,
To rise high even from the ashes,
These ashes are my experiences, my self-taught lessons,
Lessons that have turned me into a compassionate & conscious being and
Compassion and consciousness are my wings that enable me to fly high” – Anisha Safaya
Anisha Safaya has been crowned as Mrs India Universe 2017 just a month ago. Earlier, she acclaimed two of the most important sub titles in the world of beauty pageants, Mrs. Catwalk in Mrs. India Universe 2017 and in Mrs. India UK 2017. Anisha is highly thankful to the organisers of Mrs. India Universe 2017, Mr. Tusshar Dhaliwal & Mrs. Archana Tomer for providing a worldwide platform to married women like her & an opportunity to compete at an international level enabling them to re-live their passion and dreams.
A proud daughter, a wife, a friend and a dedicated colleague; Anisha’s story of success from a staunch banker as Vice President of one of the world’s leading investment banks to Mrs. India Universe 2017 has been a rollercoaster ride, yet she fought back and kept moving, head held high, making a place for herself. She believes,“We grow, we evolve to the best version of us and reach to the stage where life stops its wrath on us, takes a break & smiles back. At that point, we are no less than that piece of gold whose purity has been tested by rubbing, cutting, heating and pounding.”
Anisha is a passionate dancer and adventurous sports enthusiast, she likes sky diving, scuba diving & still remembers her ocean walker experience in the Indian Ocean as one of the most incredible experiences.
“Secret behind looking & feeling beautiful is staying fit so I make sure that I follow my fitness routine everyday which includes healthy diet and workout” , says Anisha.
“My recipe for success in Mrs India Universe is that dedication & commitment; whatever I did, I put in my 100%. I tried, I failed, I fell but I got back up and I tried again, I tried until I made it”, says Anisha
Anisha is married to a humble and intelligent man who is an amazing friend too. She feels blessed to be surrounded by trustworthy and caring friends and family. Above all, she has proud parents & her dad smiling at her from somewhere in the heavens thinking “My princess gave life her 100%”.
The values of compassion & kindness have shaped her life, for several years she has been helping disadvantaged children pursue school and university education; she believes that education empowers and puts them on a path leading to a better future. She believes that Mrs India Universe 2017 has provided her with a platform that will enable her to further these causes. Although, Anisha aims to continue to grow as a compassionate person, help others, however and wherever she can, at the same time she aims to grow professionally by furthering her successful career to new pinnacles.
Attributing credits of her success to people around her, she believes that whatever she is today is an amalgamation of qualities & best wishes of people – all of which shape who I am today, a lady with grace, resilience, diligence, dignity and optimism.”
These lines by Martin Luther King Jr, have influenced her life greatly, “If you can’t fly, run, if you can’t run, walk, if you can’t walk, crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
