Shreya Poonja: First Runner-Up 

Delhi native Shreya Poonja, an economics graduate pursuing a master’s degree in finance, was born and raised in Delhi. She was involved in the arts as a youngster and was skilled in a range of dance forms, including Kathak, Jazz, and Contemporary, as well as activities like swimming, skating, and even taekwondo.

Thounaojam Strela Luwang: Second Runner-Up

The Thounaojam family member Thounaojam Strela Luwang was born amidst the hills and dense forests that surround the serene state of Manipur. She decided to major in international business and is now completely focused on creating the future she so desperately wants. Because of the stress and anxiety brought on by bullying, she was given an early epilepsy diagnosis. As a result, she is a strong advocate for the idea that mental health is just as important as physical health, if not more so. As a result, she started actively supporting mental health. Because she views words as her friends and wants to share this knowledge with everyone, her ultimate goal is to support a “Child-friendly” educational system.
