Akansha Christopher

People's Choice Award

1.What is 1 beauty product you cannot live without?
Lip gloss! I am a lover of all beauty products, but if I had to choose one, it would definitely be the Nyx Buttergloss. From when I was young, I’ve always been a lip gloss kind of girl. I remember it was the first thing I asked my mom to get me when I turned 13. Ever since, if I have a cute lip gloss on, I feel like I can take on the day!

2.If you had to do over anything what would it be?
I would choose not to pursue a college major chosen by my parents. Even though it made them proud, this choice deteriorated my mental health and made me feel lost. I often wish I could go back in time and save those years. But thinking back on it, I realize it shaped me as a person and taught me to be brave, which I now use to my advantage as a role model and titleholder.

3.Who would you love to meet and why?
If I could go back in time, I would love to meet Cleopatra. I am a big history buff and love Egyptian culture. The reason I would love to meet Cleopatra is because I think she is very interesting, intelligent, and beautiful. She used her intellect and her charms to become a great queen and expand her nation. I would love to ask her how she had the confidence to lead a whole nation.

4.Favorite vacation?
My favorite vacation would probably be going to India as a teenager. The reason it is my favorite is because being in my motherland felt so grounding and beautiful. Seeing family and learning about my culture means a lot to me. The hot sun, the bright colors, and gentle animals of India always bring a smile to my face. Anytime I feel lost, I just close my eyes and I think of that favorite vacation.

5.What do you normally eat for breakfast?
I have a massive sweet tooth and am always in a rush, so anything small with chocolate or raspberry jam! Although on a relaxing morning, I am usually making an Indian breakfast with my family. Nothing beats a hot fresh dosa, chutney, and cup of chai to me. When I have children, I want to pass on this tradition and make them an Indian breakfast so they can enjoy their culture just like I have.
