The edition was originally scheduled for the end of 2020 but was postponed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, 104 entries had been received for the competition.
In her message to supporters in Puerto Rico, Shree Sani said, âGod has led me to the Miss World stage and I lovingly ask for your prayers throughout my journey. The amazing grace of God has surpassed any words I can have to express this blessing. I am honored to apply for the greatest work of service around the world. Have completed over 10 years of sincere community service with over 100 non-profit organizations. I am honored to represent millions of Americans and my Indian heritage. There is a reason God made me an American Indian. I represent with love our multicultural world and our new world. Being multicultural is a blessing. It allows me to connect with western and eastern cultures, understand them, appreciate them and connect with them. I have put my heart and soul in the service of our world for over a decade. When we really like something, we never want to stop. I want to do endless service work for the life to come. My own struggles have endowed me with a deeper empathy so that I can help “mend hearts: both physical hearts and emotional hearts.”
Her mother (born in Abohar) Ekta said the official video of Shree took her months of filming with more than 30 appointments with doctors, dignitaries, teachers, students, government officials, more than 50 hours of travel and over 200 hours of video editing work.
