Shweta Sharda: India's Representative in 2023 Miss Universe Competition
23-year-old Shweta Sharda from Chandigarh represented India in Miss Universe. Despite not winning, she's a successful dancer and choreographer.
Shweta Sharda, a 23-year-old from Chandigarh, was India's representative in this year's Miss Universe contest. With a background in modeling and dance, Sharda has already achieved significant success at a young age. Born on May 24, 2000, in Chandigarh, she relocated to Mumbai at 16 to pursue her dreams and has since become a professional dancer and choreographer.
In August 2023, Shweta Sharda won the prestigious Miss Diva beauty pageant, following in the footsteps of Divita Rai. Her victory brought her widespread recognition and support from people across India, who hoped she would bring home the Miss Universe crown. Sharda's passion for dance is evident through her participation and choreography in various Indian dance reality shows, including popular ones like Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and Dance India Dance.
Despite making it to the semi-finals and being among the top 20 contestants, Sharda did not advance to the next rounds after the evening-gown segment, where the top 10 finalists are selected. This year, a total of 84 contestants are vying for the coveted Miss Universe title. In an interesting development, Pakistan is participating in the Miss Universe contest for the first time, with Erica Robin representing the country.
Moreover, Miss Universe China 2023, Jia Qi, had to withdraw from the competition due to visa issues. She will now have the opportunity to compete in the next edition of Miss Universe. While Shweta Sharda's journey in the competition may have come to an end, her accomplishments and determination continue to inspire others. Despite not winning the crown, Sharda's impact and influence in the world of beauty pageants and dance are undeniable.
