Krishna Shukla becomes first Indian finalist in Miss Grand International Australia
Miss Grand Australia is one of the fastest growing Australian beauty pageants, and one of the 5 Grand Slam beauty pageants along with Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International and Miss Supranational. Krishna Shukla, a National finalist from the state of NSW, is one of the twenty-five girls selected from the hundreds who auditioned across Australia.
Krishna studies finance, economics, and political science at ANU University Canberra. Her parents migrated to Australia when she was eight years old. She played netball for her school at the state level and was a champion in debate and brought in many medals for her school and herself.
Krishna is also a trained kathak dancer and choreographer, and currently holds the position of Secretary of the Indian Australian Association of Canberra for 2017-2018 where she works to organise events that improve and bring together the Australian and Indian community of Canberra over family-friendly events that spread cultural awareness.
She is also Secretary of Ekta, Australian National University’s largest multicultural South Asian Group. “We hold events, movie screening and celebrate festivals to encourage appreciation of South Asian countries and highlight Australian multiculturalism,” says Krishna. “Over the years I have learned to juggle many things. I’ve changed 10 schools across the globe because my parents kept shuttling careers, so change is something I embrace,” she adds.
