“I am participating in this event as an undergraduate student studying Medicine. I have excelled in academics and ready to accept the challenge. I believe that Miss Indianz will allow me to connect with the young women of our generation who want to step out of their comfort zone and have fun and take what life offers,” she said.

Born in Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, Pranika is proud to be a part of the Indian and Kiwi culture. She says that Miss Indianz will provide her an opportunity to connect with her roots, culture and tradition.
