The year 2019 ended with good notes of philanthropy by the Indian American community and inspiring stories of their giving back to India. The “National American Miss Junior Teen 2019-2020” title bestowed upon Anjali Nair, an Indian-origin high school student in the US, appears to be the first good community news of 2020.
Indian American Anjali Nair, a resident of Fairfax in Virginia, walked away with the coveted crown of the National American Miss Junior Teen 2019-2020 pageant held in California. She represented the state of Virginia in the national-level competition, wearing the ‘American Miss Virginia Jr. Teen’ title which she won in 2016.
The “National American Miss Junior Teen 2019-2020” title winner, Anjali Nair will be traveling the United States for most of the time in 2020. Traveling to Houston for an all-expense-paid photo shoot, and New York for the fashion week is on the card for her. She will also attend the national pageant 2020-2021 and crown the successor of the competition at the 2020 end.
An aspiring advocate of STEM for girls, Anjali Nair is looking forward to making the most of her achievement as an opportunity to promote the talent, strength and resilience of girls. She is full of hopes that girls, if given an equal platform and equal opportunities, can succeed and excel in any field, be it STEM or social sciences, and in any pursuit they choose to reach their career goals.
She is an ardent supporter of animal welfare, as well. The National American Miss Junior Teen 2019-2020 title winner hopes to use her latest success to get support and build momentum against animal euthanasia. She volunteers with a few leading animal welfare nonprofit foundations to find new, safe homes for abandoned animals. She also encourages others to adopt homeless animals.
The secret to her winning the National American Miss Junior Teen 2019-2020 title, as she said, is that she was a self-taught competitor unlike others. She acknowledges uninhibitedly that she gained public speaking skills and made food friends through this competition. Currently, she studies at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, VA.
Anjali Nair has her paternal roots in India and maternal roots in Sri Lanka. Her mother, Narmatha Arichandran, is a pediatrician and her father, Ram Nair, is a management consultant in Fairfax, VA.
