Harnaaz Sandhu has made her first Instagram post after winning Miss Universe 2021 title on Dec 13. Sharing a few pictures of herself wearing the Miss Universe crown, she penned a long note to thank everyone who helped her in her journey.
Chandigarh based Harnaaz remembered God at the beginning of her caption. She wrote, “Wahehuru Ji Da Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Di Fateh.”
She further wrote, “We did it. I said in my final answer, that I believed in myself and that’s why I was on that stage. I also want to mention a few people who believed in me too. Firstly I would like to thank my family and friends who have been there with me no matter what. They have seen me fall and get up and they have been there supporting me throughout @ruby6100 @hsmusics @gpdhillon_.”
Thanking more people, she wrote, Thank you @naughtynatty_g for being the driving force. Your energy is infectious and I still remember how you would enter the room and it would suddenly be filed with good vibes on the most tiring days during the national pageant. You motivated me and your “Chak de phatte” moments have stayed with me throughout my journey here. I hope I was able to bring you that kind of happiness when you saw me winning today. Thank you @vineetjain12 for giving me this chance and the platform at LIVA Miss Diva 2021 and having the faith in me that I could represent India internationally. Thank you to my panelists and designers who put together the woman who won the crown for India today. Thank you to the @missdivaorg team, for standing by me, supporting me and being my driving force to win the crown. Thank you to the @missuniverse @realpaulashugart for believing I deserved this beautiful crown and the responsibility of being called Miss Universe. Lastly thank you to everyone who has showered me with so much love. I’m overwhelmed.”
Harnaaz wrote in the end, “Kar Har Maidan Fateh. Lots of love to all of you.”
