The evening of 27 December 2017 at S.K Memorial was full of beautiful, talented and elegant girls, with a smile on there face they all were giving their best to win the crown, the title, which has always been the dream of many girls of Bihar. The occasion was the Grand Finale of Freedom Miss Bihar 2017-18, from past 9 years, this contest is giving wings to the dreams of young girls aspiring for a career in the showbiz industry. It was a great initiative on the part of Ocean Vision’s CEO Praveen Sinha who thought of bringing such a concept for the girls of our state, who for having such platforms had to opt out to some other city, now with his initiative they are getting such platform living in this state only.
Like every year this year also, Miss Bihar was organized which saw many talented faces not only from Patna but from other districts of Bihar too, around 300 girls tried their luck in auditions round. Believe me, every girl had a talent of her own and there was no one who could be said no, but some made the selections and some were left out. As the auditions were over 22 contestants were selected for the grooming sessions.
And then the girls were groomed by the best professionals in the town, everything was taken care of, their diet, skin maintenance, their presence on stage, their physical fitness, ramp walk, hair, make-up everything.
And after many such grooming sessions and talent rounds finally came the day of the finale on 27th December.
Sanya Raj got the title of Freedom Miss Bihar 2017 followed by 1st runner-up Rupali and second runner-up Navam. Along with them many other titles were also given to different girls as such- miss beautiful hair was Priya, miss beautiful eye was Priyanka, miss photogenic was Swati, miss Bollywood diva was Sania, miss catwalk was Aarti, miss perfect dress was Twinkle, miss beautiful skin was Dolly, miss talent was Rama, miss social cause was Rishu. The best thing about this event was that every girl was appreciated for the kind of beauty she had.
The journey was not a cakewalk for the contestants they had to go through five tough rounds, which consisted of Bollywood dance round, Introduction round, club round, I.Q round, judges round, on the basis of which Miss Bihar of the year 2017-18 and other winners were selected.

Such events encourage our youth and make them believe in their dreams and on the fact that their dreams are achievable, there are many who do not get the right platform to show their talent, to achieve what they aspire, and such initiatives give wings to their dreams.
I’m an avid reader, a foodie, and a movie buff; who is passionate about the positivity around us. I love to dream and convert those dreams into words. At one moment I’m inside a shell and the very next moment I’m the ferocious one. Dynamism is my forte.
Apart from being a dreamer, I’m also a woman with a beating heart and a curious mind questioning traditional social norms. I’m a rebel at one moment and just opposite at the very next moment. My fuel is the smile of my son, the happiness of my family, and lots of coffee.
I’m also not ashamed of spending money on buying books and to fill my (always empty) stomach.
