Mumbai,06.02.18-The footprints left by Asian women are incredible. Be it fields of arts, science, business or sports, Asians have emerged a lot. Recently, an Indian origin, Manushi Chiller has bagged a Miss World crown in her name and now one more name is coming forward to be Miss England. Aarti Rana, born in Gujarat but bought up in Leicester, UK to a Hindu family, is making her way to be next Miss England. Aarti Rana has reached the semi-final heats of the Miss England pageant.

She studied Accounting & Business Management at De Montfort University. However, right from her childhood, Aarti has always been passionate about acting. She decided to make her passion into her profession by becoming an Indian television actress. She was recently seen enacting the role of Bela on Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat on Colors TV. Post the end of the show, she returned to the UK to spend ample time with her family and also took the decision of participating in Miss England.

Aarti has ambitions to building her own school in India. About her philanthropic work, she said, “I am very much passionate about volunteering. I am involved in charities- like helping people with food and clothing. In the future, if I get the opportunity then I would like to help people from our community who suffer from diabetes and heart problems.”

Aarti would like to encourage and inspire girls to be confident in their own skin and strive to achieve their dreams, regardless of what people may think of them. She said, “The ultimate reason why I would like to become Miss England is because I want to boost up every girl’s confident who are insecure about their bodies. We are not all the same and that's okay. I would suggest that they have the potential to be anyone they want to be.”

Aarti Rana  added, “I think Miss England is an excellent platform to be able to encourage all the ladies out to try and gain confidence, as well as get out of their comfort zone. This pageant has no height or size requirements and that is the kind of self-acceptance I want to promote.”
