A different Miss India contender

A gold medallist from Bangalore University lives a dream of helping patients who have suffered from stroke-related disorders. She also hopes to bag the Miss India pageant title this year.

A speech-language pathologist by profession, 24-year-old Eliza Baby is among the very few from her profession to enter the pageant. She has been chosen to be among the 20 in the country to enter the final round of the Miss India Mission Dreams contest. She is the first from her profession to make it to the event.

A topper in academics, Baby bagged gold medals during her undergraduate course in Bangalore University and was also among the high achievers in her post-graduation at the All India Institute of Speech and Hearing, Mysuru. This topper has been working as a speech-language pathologist for six months now.

She hopes to pursue her PhD and her project on Artificial Intelligence to help those affected by stroke has been approved by a university in the United States.
