Naveli Deshmukh

Who am I?

I am Miss India Universe 2nd runner up, a national-level basketball player and trained Bharatnatyam dancer, who represented India twice at international dance festivals held in Turkey and China respectively. Currently, I am pursuing MBA.

My Inspiration

I am a big believer in the power of “One” that one person, one action can have ripple effects that can make a difference.

Tip to the beginners in my industry

Be persistent, determined and optimistic.

Biggest influence on my life

I am deeply influenced by “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” , a phenomenal book by Robin Sharma. As the subtitle suggests, it’s a fable, and it’s one that will certainly make you give some thought to your life.

What am I grateful for?

My life! I see my life as the greatest gift and I am truly grateful for it! I am truly thankful to have a supportive family, especially my mom who’s extremely kind and encouraging. I feel blessed to have the opportunities where I get to do what I love doing and most importantly grateful to have amazing supporters like you.

How do I unwind?

I love playing basketball, dancing, listening to good music and reading something inspirational. These are the things I enjoy doing to unwind.
