The journey of Naaz Joshi which started with the aspiration of wearing the glittering crown like Sushmita Sen and Aishwarya Rai is today a tale of inspiration for everyone alike. As a child, she always admired to become a beauty queen but being a transgender narrowed her horizon but she didn’t let her light dim. Naaz got her first break by winning Miss World Diversity, 2017. She took grooming under Rita Gangwani and Alesia Raut Suryavanshi who also sponsored her training and guided her to convert her dreams into a reality. She went on to participate in Miss World Diversity 2018 and emerged to become the beauty queen.

“I am the world’s first transgender who has won an international pageant with natural-born women and India’s first transgender who has bagged the Crown for the very first time for India,” smiles Naaz who is also the first transsexual to appear on a magazine.
