I also wants to pursue the same field but with a purpose to serve the society. I already runs a Happy Go Happy club working with elders, rural women to aware them about hygiene and also with the school children. I wants to continue the same in future," said Aayushi.

Being a girl she gets her parents support in every step she took towards her dream.

My mother Dipali Dholakia is my biggest motivator as she always accompanying me to my contests and give me the strength. The pressure is always there but they always support me and make me comfortable to contest the crown among participants from 13 countries," said Aayushi.

This happens to be her winning answer in the contest which makes the judges to believe the enthusiasm of this 16 year old girl from Vadodara.
