Dreams are not really just dreams. They can turn into reality if you work hard and believe in yourself. And, Manya Singh is the best example of that.

Manya Singh, a daughter of an auto-rickshaw driver who crowned Miss India 2020 runner-up title is all over the internet. Her father is an auto-rickshaw driver. She struggled hard to achieve her dream.

She came from a background where her father struggled to make ends meet. But she somehow managed to complete her schooling in UP and joined Thakur college in Mumbai. Currently, Manya is pursuing Management studies.

After winning the beauty pageant, Manya shared a photo of her parents holding a newspaper with Manya’s picture on winning the crown.

Earlier in December 2020, the official Instagram account of Femina Miss India shared a post where Manya described her struggles while she was growing up.

I’ve spent numerous nights without food and sleep. I’ve spent many afternoons walking for miles on end. My blood, sweat, and tears have amalgamated into courage to pursue my dreams.

Things weren’t easy for her family back then. Her parents had to mortgage her mother’s jewellery in order to pay her exam fees.

She recalled her struggling days, when she used to walk miles just so that she could save the rickshaw fare.

I am here today at the VLCC Femina Miss India 2020 stage to uplift my father, my mother, and my young brother and to show the world that all is possible if you are committed to yourself and your dreams.

After her news and story went viral on the internet, netizens just can’t stop talking about her:

We are really proud of you Manya!
