The 23-year-old Indian origin doctor, Bhasha Mukherjee was recently crowned the Miss England 2019. Interestingly, Bhasha holds two different medical degrees, and has an IQ of 146 and is also fluent in 5 different languages – English, Bengali, Hindi, German and French. The Indian-origin doctor has been crowned Miss England after fending off competition from dozens of other models. As part of their entries, the women had to wear no make-up and also had to post the photo on social media with the message to celebrate natural beauty. As winner of Miss England, she will be entered into the Miss World contest 2019 and will also bag a holiday to Mauritius.
Ms. Mukherjee also performed an Indian dance sequence for her talent round, and has been running her own charity called the Generation Bridge Project since 2013, which supports Derby’s elderly community with events like fun days and talent shows.
Ms. Mukherjee is an English model of Indian Bengali descent and was born in India and her family relocated to the UK when she was nine. She went onto complete two bachelor degrees; one in medical sciences and one in medicine and surgery from the University of Nottingham. She was due to start her new job as a junior doctor in a hospital in Boston, Lincolnshire, just hours after the Miss England final.
An escalated Ms. Mukherjee says post her victory, “My pageant career all started to happen while I was in the middle of studying at medical school – it took a lot of convincing for me to do it, but eventually I decided to do it to balance out my studying and give me a break….. Some people might think pageant girls are airheads, but we all stand for a cause”. She also admits it was “quite difficult” to balance the Miss England contest with completing her medical finals this year. “I’m very proud to be representing the south Asian community, minority populations and Derby,” she further said.
