Pratima Sharma, was brought up in the city of glamour and dreams, Mumbai and got married in the small town of Khatauli, near Meerut city of Uttar Pradesh State.

After getting married she is blessed with two sons. She is living in GAIL township Kanpur Uttar-Pradesh, as her husband is working in sector Maharatna company GAIL (India) Ltd. in Dist -Auraiya, Kanpur. Her elder son is a student of Engineering and the younger son is in 9th standard. To adjust in a small township with such big dreams in her eyes was a big challenge for her. But the Sanskaras given by her parents helped her to adjust in this small township. She has completed Post Graduation in M. Com (Business Management) in the year she got married. After marriage also she did her M. A. (English literature) and then her B.Ed. from Kanpur university. She worked as a teacher in the township’s school as well. She always kept herself engaged in some creative work like dance, Music, drama and last but not the least fitness.

She has conducted many workshops of Garba and Zumba where she taught Garba and Zumba to ladies of the township.She has became famous as Garba teacher in the GAIL Township. 

She believes that: “The person should not get scared by the challenges of life and should always try to find out some best ways to polish themselves and showcase their creativity. Always have self-belief and confidence. We are the co-creator of our own life. Success comes to those who have courage to bring their passion in reality. If you think something out of the box people may become judgmental about you but once you become successful, their perception changes and they start appreciating you”.

Our society is still little conservative regarding the development of women. It fixes some boundaries for females beyond which we are not expected to exceed or grow. A woman plays multiple roles as daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, daughter in law with complete responsibilities but by doing these duties she forgets that first of all she is a woman and she also has a freedom to live her dreams.

Pratima has always been a good daughter, wife, daughter in law and has been doing all her duties with great zeal but back of the mind she always had this thought of ‘what I am doing for myself’? She was having a dream to become a beauty queen and walk on the ramp. When you dream and start to take efforts to make it reality universe help you at big extent. So was the case with Pratima. Her dream became reality when one fine day she realized and asked question to herself “Life is moving every second and when am I going to start living my dream? That was the time she made a decision to take care of herself.

She decided to transform her body to become beauty queen. Thus her fitness journey began, though it was not easy. To realize her dreams of taking part in any beauty contest ,her first step was to reduce her weight and thus she started the weight loss program. After three years of constant efforts she achieved her target with consistency and discipline.


 Fortunately, she received information regarding the Mrs. India contest which was going to be held in Delhi by Elite Club International Ltd in November, 2019. She took part and won the contest and became Mrs. India 2019. She got recognition and became more charged up to participate for Mrs. Universe 2020 contest. Mrs. Universe 2020 contest was held online due to Covid-19 pandemic but this participation proved as challenging for her in many ways. 

As she was staying in a township away from the main city area ,getting a good beautician and a fashion photographer was indeed challenging. For her professional photo shoot she choose to go to Delhi by taking risk in Covid 19 situation with Delhi reeling under maximum cases. However by God’s grace, the photo-shoot has  successfully completed and she was able to get a good shoot done to be able to send to the organizers of Mrs. Universe Ltd organization. The organizers’ shortlisted her profile. As the contest was online to be able to get maximum votes was another challenge votes as the winner would be decided on that factor. She managed to garner around 9000 votes, standing 29th position out of 89 contestants worldwide and being in the top 30.This was a remarkable achievement for her to bag the 29th position. In doing so, she received  worldwide recognition with the official title of Mrs. South West Asia Universe 2020.

“Age is just a number for me. What I have learnt from my achievements is if we have self-belief, compassion and dedication, we can achieve any” says Pratima.
