Why did you join the Miss Universe Mauritius Competition?

“I joined Miss Universe Mauritius to inspire and help people live better, more productive lives, because its a platform of empowerment, where we lead with heart and intelligence to spread light in people’s lives. Most importantly, the Miss Universe Mauritius platform allows me to compete at the Miss Universe Competition, a platform that will help me to better pursue my life goals by inspiring and empowering even more people around the world, help the underprivileged and promote aspiring entrepreneurs.” – Varsha


About Varsha Ragoobarsing

Varsha Ragoobarsing is an aspiring Entrepreneur and the Founder of a Non-Profit Organization called ANOU APRAN ( a Mauritian Creole word which means “Let’s Lean and Grow Together”) that caters for education of underprivileged children. She holds a degree in Business Administration and is currently studying at Chartered Institute Of Management Accountants. She overcame dyslexia with her fighting spirit, “can-do” attitude towards her many challenges, and with the support of her parents. Perseverance and determination helped her turn her failures into success, which taught her many great and lasting life lessons.

With her current Miss Universe Mauritius title, she has become an advocate for providing readily available education to underprivileged children who are surrounded by situations beyond their control, such as poverty, homelessness, and other socioeconomic depravities, which may hinder their growth. She hopes that her advocacy will encourage the youth to seek out the educational opportunities which are available to them. By providing equal opportunities, regardless of circumstance, she believes that our country will see an even greater rise in youth leaders who will fight for the benefit of our Mauritian citizens both in Mauritius and globally. By winning the Miss Universe crown, she hopes to pursue her advocacy on a much larger platform not only in Mauritius but other parts of the world. She believes education is the key to a Better World and a Better Future.

The quote that keeps her motivated and strong is “WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY”.
