Samastipur: The stage is all set for Miss Universe 2012 pageant which is being held at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, USA. Bihar-born Shilpa Singh represents India for the most coveted beauty competition.
Shilpa has so far performed well and has cleared all previous rounds and now she is fighting to enter into top 16-group.
The 23-year-old diva, Shipla Singh, is a software engineer by profession and a model by passion. Born to Suresh Kumar Singh, Shilpa spent her early childhood days in an unremarkable Diha in Samastipur district of Bihar. Her father was sales manager at Indian Oil and was posted at Muzaffarpur district at the time of her birth.
Shilpa, who will be representing India at the Miss Universe contest in Las Vegas on December 19, has brought happiness not only to her family but to the whole village which has been nondescript for so many years.
Natives of Diha village are very confident of the victory of their village girl at the contest. Prayers are being held for success of the “daughter of their soil” at the beauty pageant.
The competition will start with catwalk followed by the judges announcing the Super-16 round entrants and later Super-10. After that the participants will be selected for the first, second and third position.
However, the event will be aired live in India on December 20 as per IST.
