This pageant is being held since nearly 25 years and takes place at different destinations around the globe. This year it was held in India at Hotel Lalit, Mumbai. After intense training for 6 days and a grand talent round, the finale was held last Saturday night. The talent round, introduction round and the Indian wear round got Apeksha into the top 5, which was followed by the question - answer round after which the results were declared and she won the 'Miss India World Wide 2015 - First Runner Up' title. She also won a sub-title 'Miss Cat-Walk'.
Miss Apeksha's proudest moment at the event was when she opened the show waiving Indian national flag on stage. It was a great honour representing this beautiful nation and her people.

Apeksha Porwal is the younger daughter of Sangita and Sanjay Porwal and hails from a well educated, cultured and very active family who have been resident of Mulund since nearly 48 years.According to Apeksha beauty comes from within.
