The International Glamour ProjectTM is an Indo-US alliance that believes in creating an ‘Ecosystem for Women Empowerment’ through Pageantry.

Coming from Tamilnadu a state known for its people with a heart of gold Sandhya chose her platform to be “Animal Welfare”. She has initiated a care group called “Cause-for-paws” which is a self-supporting platform and raises funds to support stray animals. She is in the process of setting up local shelters for stray animals where they not only get food and shelter but also can be provided with basic medical-aid and treatment. Sandhya states “Animals can’t speak for themselves and I chose to be the voice for the Voiceless”.
Sandhya follows a rigorous fitness regime from an early age and states that hardwork and consistency is the only way to success. She quotes that every morning we wake up with two options, either to continue sleeping or chase our dreams with determination. Sandhya beautifully balances her roles of being a Pageant Queen, a proficient student, a classical dancer, a loving sister and a dotting daughter.
Sandhya is a perfect example of a girl without limits, inspiring young girls to dream big and chase them with zeal and passion. She wants to use this opportunity to spread the message that beauty lies in our inner attributes and how we carry ourselves with guts, glamour and glory.
