Miss Black Country 2011 returns from India with a Shimmy!

Miss Black Country 2011 winner Roshni Pink has recently returned from her heart-warming charity work in India, where she has spent the last 8 weeks visiting orphanages and boys schools teaching basic English skills. Since been crowned Miss Black Country 2011 which was held at Wolverhampton Racecourse on 9th April 2011, her feet have not touched the ground since.

Roshni said “My trip to India was absolutely amazing, I had such a beautiful time and my experiences were so heart-warming... I visited boys orphanages where I distributed reading books and helped with basic English skills, it was very emotional as the boys there are the same age as my younger brothers, so it felt great to pass on a language and something so useful for their future”

Roshni also managed to get an interview of a poor orphan, who had nothing, but is now a famous dancing star because of a Dance Reality Show, which gave him the chance to prove himself. I believe this is an incredible story because generally in India it is a case of the richer getting richer and the poorer just getting poorer, they are never given a chance, which is sad because there is so much talent going to waste. I believe if children were given half of the chances we are offered in our country they could go on to-do amazing things...
Since returning home to the Black Country, Roshni has already begun her preparations for the Miss England 2011 contest as well as a number of fundraisers including, charity a carwash and Race for Life, all in aid of 'Beauty with a purpose' which is the Miss England fundraiser charity.

Roshni’s is now getting her Bedlah ready for her Belly Dancing Classes, which are to be held this weekend the Esporta gym, Broadlands, Wolverhampton in aid of 'Beauty with a purpose’. Roshini said “I am really excited about my new Belly Dance Classes, they are targeted at all age groups and an excellent way to keep fit” Roshni’s Belly Dancing classes are £4.00 per session and are being held at the Esporta gym, Broadlands, Wolverhampton in aid of 'Beauty with a purpose’  on Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th June, between 3.00pm – 4.00pm.
