Miss World America Organization is all set to begin its 2020 edition as the state titles will be announced on 16th August 2020 and the competition will begin officially. While all the contestants haven’t been revealed, a few delegates have been confirmed to compete at Miss World America 2020 and one of them is Manya Saaraswat who previously competed at Miss USA 2019.

Born in India, Manya Saaraswat moved to the USA at the young age of three. Throughout her life, Manya moved seven times and resided in five different states before moving to New Jersey which became her home. The stunning beauty comes from different heritages which helps her understand more about the culture and traditions making her a stronger person.

Manya is not new to the pageantry as she participated in Miss New Jersey 2019 and represented her region at Miss USA 2019. Unfortunately, she could not place in the Top 15 at the end of the event finale. She definitely has the experience to begin her journey in Miss World America 2020 at a stronger note.

Manya graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. She had the honor of attending Bucknell University on a Presidential Fellowship, the university's highest merit scholarship. There’s a history of medical professionals doing well at Miss World with successes such as Rolene Strauss Miss World 2013, Manushi Chhillar Miss World 2017 and Bhasha Mukherjee Miss England 2019 to name a few. It could definitely work in Manushi’s favour.

Manya started volunteering at local children's hospitals at a young age where she understood her love for medicine and hopes to become a pediatric surgeon and founder of a nationally recognized children's hospital one day. Manya’s proudest personal accomplishment is holding a stem cell internship at Harvard University and being published in several reputable medical journals. In our opinion, Manya sure is a strong contender for the national crown and an ideal representative of USA at Miss World.
