For Arooj, her role model is her mother who has devoted her whole life to care and raise Arooj and her family and instilled in the ethic to work hard for our dreams. The diva explains that her mother has been her biggest supporter and motivation to keep working hard and she was the one who pushed her towards beauty pageants. She mentioned, “I owe my success to the lessons she taught me as a child, tirelessly caring and loving us all.” The diva also added that her father has been one of the constant support in her life as well as career who would always cheer her up and keep motivating her for doing good in life. 

Arooj is working hard to be in her top shape physically, as well as have the correct headset going into the competition. She believes that one should “Overcome your fears and go for your dreams, you cannot become what you do not dream!” She wants to be someone that makes her country proud and Miss Earth 2020 stage is that platform. With her positive attitude towards marking her own standing in the beauty pageant world and doing something for the environment, Arooj Bokhari can emerge as a strong contender for the title of Miss Earth 2020. She has already started to prepare herself for the virtual coronation ceremony of Miss Earth 2020 which is scheduled to be held between 21st September to 29th November 2020.

Congratulations to the queen!
