KrAsia (Kr): Give us more insight into how your journey began, and what it was like competing in the Miss Asia Universe Competition.
Sonal Singh: I had recently moved to India and started working as a freelance consultant, and got approached to participate in this competition. I wanted to get into shape & that’s when I heard of a small Facebook group, at the time called SQUATS , I decided to join. That’s when I met Jitendra Chouksey (JC), the founder, who trained me for the competition, in which I won the title. I was then invited as a guest speaker to a community event, and it was truly inspiring to meet the team, and I could already see the strength of the community. Through our conversations, we realized I could add some value. My journey began as a customer and I officially joined the team in 2016 helping to build it to where it is today.
