We Indians are everywhere, and Parull Khanna is definitely one woman, who is making a mark globally! She has been entitled & honoured with several awards & mentions, with the most recent & prestigious one being ‘Woman of Steel’ by the Cosmopolitan Magazine for her entrepreneurial endevaours & after her win as Ms. India, Queen of the World Pageant, she represented India on a global platform, competing for Ms. World Title, that took place on March 18th, in New Jersey, USA, where she shone bright as the 1st Runner up for the title!
Her journey can inspire a lot of people, specially women out there! It’s however not easy to reach till the top 2, she thoroughly enjoyed the process, giving her all, in spite of being a renowned face in the entrepreneurial circuit. Parull Khanna, is an entrepreneur & founder to two brands, Studio 6 Jewels & Studio 6 Interiors and both of them have a global reach.
Let’s take a look at her story & her purpose to participate in the Pageant!
She says, dreams can take you beyond the clouds, if you aim at fulfilling them. A naive, 19 year old girl, who dreamt of flying high, perused a career in an off-beat stream 20 years ago, against all odds of the society, she went ahead & made sure she captured the world. A Fresh bow of Cupid struck & she decided to take the plunge again. Trust me, it takes guts to jump on a decision listening to your heart & standing by it. Things didn’t turn out as planned, & the fairy-tale took a turn to separation!
From not knowing what to do next to be financially stable & be able to fulfil the family’s basic necessities to wanting to learn & know more, she started her Interior Designing firm, after a few ups & downs. But like it is said that where there is a will, there is always a way. Even the Gods favour the one who knows to take actions. They say, once you remember who the real you are, the game changes for you! That is what exactly happened here!
Her keen eye in designing the spaces & glamourizing them with her tasteful touch, took off with the right people & good opportunities. But it was around Covid that, everything took a setback, and that is where, she was pushed by her mother to initiate in the Jewellery & styling sector as well. Taking her mother’s kind blessings, she established Studio6 Jewels and today… She proudly owns both companies under the same name—Studio6 Jewels & Studio 6 Interiors & manages both as a Managing Director– with elan & poise with clients from all over the globe.
Although her philanthropic side was always alive. And for it’s the most important thing! She kept on doing some meaningful activities & training programs for adolescent girls for the organization, EmpowHer India & some help for Cancer patients at the St. Jude’s hospital. And her main motto is to spread the word of financial independence for women, globally!
So when the opportunity came for Ms. India at the Queen of the World Pageant, she immediately grabbed it. She saw a platform to bring a change & reach out to the masses, globally for such social causes & also to inspire other women to come up forward & fulfil their dreams. And that is exactly what was her winning answer to the question, that, ‘What would she do, if she won the title tonight at the Queen of the World Pageant!’
It’s time, we stand for each other & give a hand to move ahead in life & make the world a better place to live in! It’s no more just about woman, but a society as a whole, that how gracefully are we growing & leading a life ahead.. leaving only peace & harmony for our generations to come!
Well, Parull Khanna , is truly paving a path for woman of India & globally too, inspiring them to push themselves out of patriarchy & embrace their dreams. Of course, the journey doesn’t end here.. in fact this is a beginning to a new journey from onwards.. as she believes.. she has miles to go..
