An advocate for heart health, Shree Saini of Washington State has become the first Indian-American to be crowned as Miss World America 2021

Among the most unique pageant winners, Saini has had a permanent pacemaker since she was 12, and overcame a major car accident which left her with burns all over her face. But she rarely if ever lets any of that hold her back or define her.

Diana Hayden crowned Shree Saini at the event, which was held at Miss World America headquarters in Los Angeles, according to a press release.

“I am happy and quite nervous. I can’t express my feelings (in words),” stated Saini, who is also the first Indian-origin contestant to represent America at a global stage.
