Beauty meets brain- Aileena Catherin Amon

Manoj Rangan

Beauty Pageants have always changed lives of many Beauty Queens around the world. And one of the beauty queen is Aileena Catherin Amon from the God’s Own Country, Kerala . So simple and down to earth is the first impression one gets after talking to the pretty face of South India, Aileena. She is truly a splendid combination of both Beauty and Brains.  It was her bold decision to opt for the world of fashion as a career despite the opposition from her conservative family. When asked why, the student of MBA in International Business says “ever since I saw Sushmita Sen and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan making the country proud by winning the Miss Universe and Miss World titles in 1994, it has been a dream to win a crown or walk on the ramp …” So confident and spunky, she makes you fall for her when you see her walking on stage. It is not just her beautiful face, but also her warm and pleasing personality that draws us to this woman.

This confident young lady is now a post graduate in Masters in International Business, Speaking about her pageant achievements she was the 3rd runner up at Miss India Universe 2015 (Miss Diva 2015), Miss South India 2015 winner, Miss Queen Of India 2015 – Top 6, Top 40 of Miss India 2014, 3rd runner up in Midukki- a Reality show of Mazhavil Manorama, Miss Kerala 2012, Miss Congeniality and Miss talent in Mister and Miss Body Perfect and she made her debut in M-town with Lal , she had her goals and priority set and her recent achievements won’t get in her studies. She first completed her studies and then tried her luck in fashion world. That is what a true beauty queen is, like wise to Ashwarya Rai and Sushmitha Sen who knows their priority.
It was a huge roller coaster ride for Aileena from being a normal girl to be the Beauty queen and from convincing her parents for pageants and to getting trained under “Queens and Crowns “ Pageant grooming School for 1 year. Yes its true … even her parents were against this when she had confessed her love for the pageant as a child. But as time passed, She couldn’t think of anything else except modelling. After graduation, She took a step forward to her dream and told her parents that she only wanted to do this. Asked her parents to watch one show and when they understood what goes on in this, they have been really very supportive.

She believes that every job has its negatives and positives… Make your stand and no one can dare to mess with you. The way you conduct and behave with people matters a lot. Be choosy and when on high of career, stay grounded, never lose yourself or get lost in the world of glitz and glamour.
She says the biggest driving force that attracts her to Beauty pageants is the competition that she can have with herself. She is a person from a very normal middle-class family with no background of anyone coming from this industry. So it was a challenge she took up to see if I can actually conquer the heights that she have always dreamed about achieving. So, her constant need to prove her doubts and inhibitions wrong made her try pageants.
Aileena also want to work for social causes and make a difference when she has a good bank balance. She has started with little help to a school in Aluva. She has helped them setup a library in school with new good books with the little amount she earned during the Midukki days and by asking friends to contribute some books. And helped them colour the school to make a good environment for education
At last but not least her greatest motivation thought is “When you have a dream, believe and follow it till you achieve it. When an opportunity comes your way, take it up no matter what and give your 100% to it leaving no room for regret”.
