Besides this, as per reports in several publications, Lara has also spoken about convincing people who were against the pageant. According to the former Miss Universe, these pageants gave young girls an opportunity to make their choices and be strong and independent individuals in the fields they chose for themselves. “I think pageants like the Miss Universe pageant gives us young women a platform to foray in the fields that we want to and forge ahead, be it entrepreneurship, be it the armed force, be it politics. It gives us a platform to voice our choices and opinions and makes us strong, independent that we are today,” said Lara.
