She is now looking forward to the international competition taking place in December. “I have only two months to prepare. My aim is to represent the beauty of our island and also of its women who are fighters and achievers. I feel more pressure than usual on my shoulders, as the two previous Miss Supranational Mauritius won the title of Miss Supranational Africa. So, I will have to work extremely hard in order to get the same title or achieve even more.” 

The Muay Thai and kickboxing adherent shares that she encourages all Mauritian women to do these kinds of sports. “It will boost your self-confidence and promote self-defense in our community. I want to tell all women that nothing is impossible and that yes, we can achieve great things,” says Urvashi, who aims to become a strong role model for the youth.
