Today we hit the runway with Miss New Jersey USA and runner-up to the 2017 Miss USA Beauty Pageant, Chhavi Verg. The young Edison native and Rutgers University sophomore became only the second Indian-American Miss New Jersey USA and the first to make runner up.
Chhavi talks about her journey moving from India as a toddler and what the American Dream meant for her. We also spoke about what it feels like being on stage competing on prime time television, the physical and mental training she endured a year and a half leading up to the pageant, the trend of more South Asian women competing in beauty pageants, and the issues of cyberbullying that she faced and overcame.
Tune in to see who will be crowned the Miss Politics and Spice on this week’s episode.
