Bhubaneswar: Femina Miss India Odisha 2017 Christeena Biju motivated underprivileged girls during city based Parichay Foundation’s ‘Alaknanda Scholarship Programme’ when the girls were on a day out at Regional Science Park on Sunday.
A first year student of National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Bhubaneswar, Christeena has been recently crowned as Femina Miss India Odisha 2017 at the FbbColorsFemina Miss India 2017 east pageant. After being selected in the ‘Top Three’ in the Bhubaneswar Fbb store auditions, Christeena competed with contestants from across the eastern zone at Kolkata and bagged the chance to represent her state, Odisha, at the FbbColorsFemina Miss India 2017 after extensive training sessions and pre-pageant activities.
While the young girl is all geared up to earn the coveted title when she leaves for Mumbai next month, she also wants up to take the cause of girl child education, the reason why Parichay and Christeena have joined hands.
Parichay Foundation, had launched its flagship project, ‘Alaknanda Scholarship Programme’ on last year Children’s Day to help drop-out girl students from underprivileged sections of the society complete their matriculation examination under National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS).
In a bid to encourage all the students of the scholarship project to clear their matriculation examination to be held by this year-end, Parichay took them on an outing to Regional Science Park to learn and have fun simultaneously.
A philanthropic organisation engaged in promoting Indian art and culture and bringing about economic and social upliftment for the underprivileged in urban and rural slums of Odisha and Delhi, Parichay would also like to wish the best to Christeena who is confident of bearing the flag of Odisha high at the Femina Miss India pageant.
