Victoria Fernandes is all set sizzle the ramp in the 59th edition of the Femina Miss India beauty pageant to be held in April 2023 at Imphal, Manipur.
Born and brought up in Mumbai, she has a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Media from St Andrew's College, Bandra.
Victoria says though she lives in Mumbai, her heart and soul are in Goa.
While modeling was always her passion, her middle-class values ensured that she got a degree as well.
A hardcore lobbyist for women empowerment, she has, through her small crochet business started during the lockdown, helped several homemakers find their identity.
She says the serenity of Goan beaches and solemnity of the churches are always at the back of her mind and she always longs to be in Goa.
In her International Women's Day message, Victoria said women have the power to create an impact to eradicate gender inequality in society
