Amin, 25 years old, made history as the first woman from Manitoba to win the prestigious title of Miss India Worldwide in the pageant’s history. Since winning Miss India Worldwide Canada in April 2009, Amin has spent her reign working with various organizations and charities to encourage youth involvement and cultural diversity. This year, Amin selected Folklorama as her official pageant charity and will continue to work with the organization.
Aside from her charity and community work, Amin has been featured in numerous publications from around the world including being named as one of sixteen most promising Indian youth by the prestigious magazine “India Today”.
The Miss India Worldwide pageant is the only international Indian pageant with over 30 countries participating. Previous winners have achieved success in Bollywood, business and politics.
Previously, there have been two former Miss India Worldwide Canada winners to win the Miss India Worldwide crown: Poonam Chibber in 1997 and Melissa Bhagat in 1998.
