Shree Saini became the first Indian-American to win Miss World America 2021. She was the first Indo-American to represent the United States in this world-class competition.
When she was 12, Saini met with a car accident which left her with burns all over her face. Although she had to live with the help of a pacemaker for the rest of her life, she overcame all these and won the Miss World America crown and caught the world’s attention.
Shree Saini’s Miss World America 2021 Crowning Ceremony was held in Los Angeles. She was crowned by Diana Hayden, Miss World 2017, and Tanya Memme, Miss World Canada 2013.
After winning, Saini said in her statement, “I am happy and quite nervous. I can’t express my feelings (in words). All the credit goes to my parents, especially my mother because of whose support I am here. Thank you, Miss World America for this honour.”
Shree also holds the prestigious position of MWA National Beauty with a Purpose Ambassador.
